Fans eagerly awaiting the premiere of the Irish version of Gogglebox will get a first look at the highly anticipated show tonight - and two women look set to be stars.

Castleknock women Angela De La Mere and Eileen Bolger met at their local retirement club. Veteran Eileen spotted newcomer Angela and offered her a seat next to her and they have been close pals ever since.

Dubliner Angela moved back from Wexford a few years ago and enrolled as a mature student, studying Retail in Pearse College. Eileen is originally from Kilkenny and spent most of her life as a Children's and Psychiatric nurse.

The pair's favourite shows include Ear To The Ground and Midsomer Murders.

Gogglebox Ireland airs tonight on TV3 at 9:30pm
