Celebrity Gogglebox is set to welcome back Rylan Clark-Neal and his mum Linda Clark as she's been given the all-clear to sit alongside her son on the sofa once again.

Rylan shared the good news with his followers on Twitter on Tuesday (June 23), as he shared a photo of himself and his mum settling in for a night of TV viewing.

"Guess who's got the all clear to be in my bubble..... She's back!" he wrote. "See you Friday @C4Gogglebox #CelebrityGogglebox @Channel4."

If his followers' reactions are anything to go by, Rylan and Linda will be a welcome addition to the current series of the show, with one fan writing: "This is awesome! Me and dad think your mum is hilarious," and another saying: "YAY! This is fantastic."

TV presenter and former X Factor contestant Rylan and his mum quickly won over viewers in their previous Celebrity Gogglebox appearances, but the duo haven't yet featured during the current run due to social distancing guidelines.

Earlier this year, Rylan shared that he and Linda have been offered a number of other projects together but sadly they haven't been able to accept any because Linda has Crohn's disease, which limits what she is able to do.

"Gogglebox is enough for us. She feels comfortable doing that show ­because we're just sat in my kitchen," he said. "It's the only thing we can do ­together."

Now that Linda has been given the all-clear to form a 'social bubble' with her son in lockdown, the pair can finally settle down on the sofa together again.

Rylan and Linda will be joining the likes of Loose Women star Stacey Solomon and her partner Joe Swash, as well as father-and-son duo Martin and Roman Kemp, in offering their opinions on the week's TV.

Also featuring in the current series are This Morning hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford and Coronation Street's Maureen Lipman and Countdown Dictionary Corner favourite Gyles Brandreth.

Also set to join the cast for the rest of the series are Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid and her friend Judge Rinder, as well as actress and fashion designer Sadie Frost and her sons Rafferty and Rudy Law.

Celebrity Gogglebox airs on Channel 4.
