Gogglebox fan favourite Stephen Webb has been on the show for eight years, right from the first series.
But it’s only now, thanks to a mix up over a birthday present, that people have realised his age – and just how good he looks for it.
The TV reality star is a hairdresser in Brighton, and now appears with his husband Daniel Lustig and their little dogs, and recently wowed viewers with a youthful new look.

And it’s so youthful that they were shocked to find out one detail from his life outside the show – his age.
Stephen posted a picture of an early birthday present he had accidentally opened before the big day to his fans on Instagram, captioning it: “@kylieamey25 you should have said the parcel was a birthday present. I’ve already opened it! @sams_sweetsnshakes.”
The present was a jar full of sweets with ‘Happy 50th birthday Stephen’ written on it.
Some fans were surprised to find out he was turning the big Hawaii Five O, replying with the kind of comments anyone turning 50 would love to read, although the fact that Stephen’s insta profile name contains the year 1971 means no one should really be surprised.
One wrote: “You are 50??? Wtf, I would barely put you at 40!!! Looking fabulous.”
A second shocked fan said: “You look fantastic for 50! Would never of said you were that old…. have a great day.”
“Btw, I misread the label as saying that u were 30..!!,” a third added.
A fourth wrote: “Happy 50th….you don’t look it.”
A fifth said: “Happy birthday Stephen you don’t look a day over 30 have a lovely day.”
And a sixth added: “Blimey. Are you really 50 !!!!! You dont look a day over 49. Happy birthday.”
Gogglebox is currently off our screens while the show takes a break.
