In breaking the news in an Instagram post on Monday, professional boxing trainer Marcus credited the show’s producers with their casting, but insisted it was time to put down the remote.

He wrote: “Just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to @c4Gogglebox for having us over the past 5 years, even though we had to travel so far to shoot (downstairs and across the driveway) it was worth it, it’s been an epic trip!” You guys are the best ever.

We had so much fun with all of you at home and the hardworking Gogglebox crew but it’s time to put down the remote and see what God has in store for us.

Marcus and Mika—a hairdresser and salon owner—appear occasionally on the show alongside Mika’s two daughters, Sachiel and Shoji.

The pair have become firm favorites with Gogglebox viewers over recent years, but Marcus has previously claimed that he hates being recognized by the public.

“I avoid being recognized like the plague,” he explained. I’ll put my mask on and a hat on and people will keep saying, “Look in the eyes, it’s Marcus from Gogglebox!” And I’m like, “Damn it!”

Meanwhile, Mika jokingly compared herself to reality TV’s most famous family, adding, “If I covered my locks, I wouldn’t be recognized as much.” Gift locks. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it properly.

“Sometimes, I feel like one of the Kardashians.”
