Who is Stanley Johnson on Celebrity Gogglebox?

Perched alongside Toff on the Gogglebox sofa is an author and former politician Stanley Johnson.

Stanley is the father of UK Conservative MP Boris Johnson. He also has five more children, Rachel and Joseph with Boris’ mother Charlotte Fawcett and Julia and Maximilian are from his second marriage to Jennifer Kidd.

He was born in Penzance, Cornwall and turns 79 years old in 2019. Stanley celebrates his birthday on August 18th 1940.

You may recognise Stanley from his appearance on BBC’s The Real Marigold Hotel in 2018. He took part in the show along with Selina Scott, Syd Little and other celebrities.

Stanley Johnson and Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo’s relationship

Although the friendship between almost 80-year-old Stanley and 25-year-old Toff may seem a tad unlikely, the pair make a great TV-watching duo on Celebrity Gogglebox.

Both Stanley and Toff appeared on the 2017 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!. Stanley came seventh on the show and Toff was crowned Queen of the Jungle.

It’s unknown whether Toff and Stanley knew each other before entering the Jungle but chances are they’ve always mixed in the same circles.

Toff once went to work for weekly magazine ‘The Lady’ on an episode of Made in Chelsea which was edited by Stanley’s daughter, Rachel, until 2012.

The pair are supporters of the Conservative party, sharing the same political standpoint, too.
