Sandra Martin has walked from the reality show just a year after her best pal Sandi quit.
One of Britain's favourite reality stars, Sandra Martin has revealed she is walking from Gogglebox after four years on the hit show.
The fan favourite, who has been on the hit Channel 4 show since it began in 2013, appeared on Wednesday's This Morning to explain why she has decided to quit.
Sandra admitted host Eamon Holmes that she felt a "bit uneasy" about closing this chapter and that she would "miss" appearing on the show.
"I am going to miss it, but I decided at that time I wanted to move on to other things. It’s four and a half years now, and I’m just moving on, keeping up with the times.”
Sandra’s decision will be a big blow to show bosses and devoted fans, who have been left cackling by Sandra’s boisterous personality which has lit up their TV screens for years.
The star rose to fame alongside her best friend Sandi Bogle, but she decided to leave Gogglebox at the end of last year and Sandra’s daughter joined her mother on the sofa instead.
After hanging up her reality tv shoes, Sandra will be heading off to do pantomime.
She explained: “I want to pursue my career to do other things, Sandi had gone before, but it wouldn’t have been the same with my daughter.”
"My daughter came on after, and I always said it wouldn't have been the same with her, as there are certain subjects I couldn't discuss. Watching [sex scenes] with my daughter wasn't the same, as it's difficult to talk about (sex) with my daughter."
Fans have since taken to Twitter to air their disappointed views.
