Gogglebox star Paige Deville has left the Channel 4 show she has announced on Friday, September 17, as she confirmed her exit on Twitter following fury over the aftercare provided.

She took to Twitter to make her announcement after stating that it had been "an experience", but she no longer wants to continue working on the show.

Birmingham-based Paige, who appears regularly on the show with her mum Sally, has said that the "restrictiveness" and "zero aftercare" resulted in her decision to leave.

In a statement on Twitter, she wrote: "I have made the decision to walk away from Gogglebox.

"It's been an experience but one I cannot continue with due to long hours of filming, restrictiveness, control of our actions and opinions and zero aftercare support. But hey, who cares about ex cast, their NTA winners[sic]."

While replies to her tweet were limited, viewers were quote tweeting the statement with emojis urging her to spill more on the decision, but she's yet to add anything else.

Elsewhere, fans were tweeting her in response to her news, with one user writing: "Sad to hear you're leaving, wishing you the best of luck for the future."

Another said: "I loved you and your mum on Gogglebox. Shame to see you go but you have to do what's right for you."

Another said: "Sad to hear Paige Deville and her mum Sally are leaving Gogglebox! I love their sense of humour and witty comments. Good luck for the future."

Paige and Sally joined the cast of Gogglebox in 2019 and became fan favourites as viewers gushed over their banter together.

Gogglebox does often update the cast, keeping a sea of fresh faces on the Channel 4 programme, with business development manager Paige and her carer mum Sally being fairly newbies to the show.

Some faces from the show have ended up with stunning success, including the likes of Scarlett Moffatt, who joined the show in 2014, wrapping up her time on the show two years later.

Clearly her time on the show proved to be a good career move, as she ultimately went on to win I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here that same year in 2016.

No next steps have been confirmed for Paige and Sally just yet, but Paige has confirmed one thing – that she will not be back on the show.
