DP and I have been wondering for ages why the Michaels daughter Alex sometimes looks really odd and doesn't speak. We wondered if she'd had work done or had a brace on her teeth or something but couldn't work out why she was sometimes her usual self but sometimes seemed really different! Tonight, watching a recorded episode curiosity got the better of me and I googled...only to find out it's a sister Katie!

Am I the last to hear about this? Did you all know and I've been wondering what's going on like a divvy on my own? shockgrin

Youre not the only one! Ive seen quite a few threads where people have wondered about this.

Erm. I hadn't even noticed that she was different at times.

All righty then!!

My mind is blown! I thought she'd had he teeth done or something... Now I know I'm not going mad at least grin

There's 5 of them!!!

How have I not noticed that there's two different people pretending to be one person!!

Why are they never in the same room together. Odd.

OMG. I had no idea! I had noticed her appearance varied but hadn't given it very much thought. Thanks!

There are actually 6 of them! Pascal is another brother! Watch out for him appearing instead of Louis sometime!

Blimey I had no idea shock

Those sisters look extremely alike! I cant tell which one is the usual one from those photos.

Elledouble Sun 29-May-16 22:26:03

I swore it was the same girl, but my partner pointed out they were different - he thought maybe one of them was the son's girlfriend but I'm not convinced he's the type to have a girlfriend...

I am really really bad with faces though.

The two girls used to appear together and one sat on the floor. Sometimes she's appear on her own and still sit on the floor. When they take turns to sit on the sofa I can't tell them apart.

I had no idea!

mashpot Sun 29-May-16 22:28:24

Can't believe it!!I did not know

Busyizzie Sun 29-May-16 22:29:29

This has been driving me and DP crazy for weeks! We thought she'd had 'work' done but then the next week would look the same as always. Thank you OP for putting us out of our misery

HoppingForward Sun 29-May-16 22:29:47

I never noticed blush

ladygracie Sun 29-May-16 22:30:54

I am sure that I've only seen one of them but I very rarely watch it so that is possible. Had no idea there are 2.

MakingJudySmile Sun 29-May-16 22:30:58

There's two sons? What?!

MyNewBearTotoro Sun 29-May-16 22:30:59

I'm sure when Gogglebox first started The Michaels had all three children (minus Pascal who I can't remember ever seeing) sat with them. Katie disappeared from being a regular after a series or two - I assumed she'd gone off to university.

nancy75 Sun 29-May-16 22:32:03

It had never entered my head that there was more than one daughter shock

MitzyLeFrouf Sun 29-May-16 22:33:24

The mother always refers to 'Alex' though. How often has the other sister been on the programme?

They are such an annoying family though. Definitely my least favourite Gogglebox contributors.
