The news was also announced on Gogglebox’s social media page.

A statement read: “We are deeply saddened to announce that Gogglebox star Mummy Pat Webb passed away this weekend at the age of 75 after a long illness.

‘Pat was a much-loved cast member on the show from seasons 10 to 12 alongside his son Stephen.

‘Mummy Pat will be remembered and missed by her children Stephen, Denise, Sharon, Beverley and all the family.

“Our thoughts are with the family who have requested privacy at this sad time.”

Pat’s fans took to the comments of the post to share their condolences after the sad news was announced on social media.

They said: ‘Oh I loved your mum on Gogglebox, you two were brilliant together. I am very sorry to hear this sad news.’

‘My God, I’m so sorry. She was quite a character on Gogglebox.

‘Oh Stephen, I’m so sorry! Your mom was so funny when you were both on Gogglebox. She sends lots of love to you, Daniel and your family.”

Pat joined Gogglebox after Stephen’s former partner Chris Steed left the show in 2018.

From 2019 to 2023, Stephen appeared alongside her husband Daniel.

Stephen was one of the longest-running stars of the series, joining when it began in 2013.

The sad news comes after Stephen announced that he and Daniel were leaving the show last year.

Stephen confirmed he would not be returning to Gogglebox after leaving to join Dancing On Ice.

He said at the time: “It’s been 10 years and it’s time to move on and see what else is out there.”

‘We filmed our final scenes in the last series and they have already been shown. There have been some opportunities in the works, but I’m not going to say much just yet.

“If I was approached, I’d like to do Celeb Bear Grylls – I think I could cope very well.”

“But the worst part of the experience would be eating things; something like rats would be my nightmare.”

However, in a surprising turn of events, Stephen was forced to retire after breaking his left ankle during a training session.

In October last year he was rushed to Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, where doctors told him he had broken his left ankle and would need crutches for at least the next three months.

The television personality underwent surgery to have metal plates placed in her ankle for additional support.
