“Can you believe it? Three Logies. How’s that? I still help Mum out at her nut stall in Mornington three days a week and love coming here. I got discovered at a market stall in Frankston. That’s how I got the Gogglebox gig. Faye wasn’t my first choice to come on the show. Ha, ha. She was my last, of course . . .” And the cracking up begins again.

“I first came to Dromana when I was one year old. My parents bought a house in Mount Martha in 1988/89 because it reminded my dad of Greece, and he didn’t want to go to Rye like all the other Greeks did. It was supposed to be a holiday house but they moved there permanently. Now I’m building a house there. The Peninsula has everything — boating, wineries, beaches. I go to Sorrento with friends, eat out in Dromana. Remember the Greek church in Red Hill?” Faye joins in. “Yes! With Father Tatsis?” “No, that wasn’t his name,” quips Anastasia. “It . . . it was . . . gee, he was good-looking.”

Personality is the name of the game in TV and these two girls have got it in spades. You can see why they keep coming back season after season. Faye continues. “The show is so much fun. All the things they don’t show you that happen behind the scenes, like the time Anastasia fell asleep and started to snore and I fell asleep and rolled off the couch. Gogglebox has become our normality. It’s just what we do and everyone has remained the same. It’s like one big extended family. I still think it’s funny when clients in my day job as an executive assistant ask for selfies.” 

Real estate developer Anastasia continues. “My relatives don’t give a damn that I’m on TV, but I’ll never forget getting free charcoal chicken from across the road after the first season aired and little kids asking if they can sit on the couch with me. It’s sweet.”  

These two lovers of the Peninsula are always around. You might bump into Anastasia at her mum’s nut stall throughout the week, or at Safety Beach taking a dip in the sea. Faye loves catching up with her sons in Mornington and dropping by Montalto or Mills Beach. She also wants to get back into working with horses, which she did for years on the Peninsula. 

Both women intend to use their fame to help less fortunate people in the future. Until then you can turn on the box and get a goggle at these two ‘crazy’ ladies who “at our age have nothing to prove. We’ve been there, done that”.  

Thumbs up to that.

Gogglebox Australia will return to our screens first on Foxtel’s Lifestyle Channel on Wednesday, February 6, at 7.30pm and the following day at 8.30pm on Ten.
