The National Television awards took place last month, which showcased the best, worst and just cringe worthy content available to British viewers. The Best Factual Entertainment was awarded to Gogglebox- a reality show which captures the opinions and reactions of families across the country, as they watch popular shows.
The Siddiqui family, who proved a popular hit amongst viewers, collected the award on the night-without running short of that Siddiqui charm!
Sid (father), Baasit and Umar are regulars on the show, and are known for their sarcastic and witty sense of humour. However, the trio are always getting questioned about their lives outside of the show. So, here are some facts about the Siddiqui family:-
• Baasit was first asked by his friend who worked on the show, and the others were up for it.
• Baasit’s an IT teacher – unsurprisingly, his pupils are massive fans of the show.
• Umar’s a microbiologist at the Royal Derby Hospital.
• Sid’s wife and two daughters are also big fans of the show, but are a little camera shy to ever want to make an appearance.
Since the success of the show, the trio have considered going into The Jungle- from the show, I’m a Celebrity, Get me out of Here!
