Celebrity Gogglebox takes on a new air of sadness tonight after Chris Eubank appeared on the show, filmed days before his son died.

It was revealed tonight that Sebastian Eubank, 29, has been found dead on a beach in Dubai.

Chris appeared on the show with his other son, Chris Eubank Jnr.

The pair are in typical good spirits, filmed before the tragic news broke.

After watching some impressive acrobats performing incredible feats with heavy weights, Chris Senior and Junior didn't look too fussed.

Chris asked his son: "On a scale of one to ten, what would you give them?"

Deadpan, his son jokes: "Five point four."

Equally as straight faced, Chris Snr replies: "I can't disagree."

They also reacted to Jeremy Clarkson helping a lamb give birth, with Eubank Jnr joking "Get in there Clarkson, go on!"

As a scary programme came on, Chris Eubank Snr told his son: "You have nothing to worry about, but if you get scared I'll give you a hug."

The tragic news about Sebastian Eubank broke this evening.

Speaking about his death, Chris Eubank Snr gave a statement saying: “Never did I ever imagine I would write these words or experience the feeling I now have at the loss of my son.

"My family and I are devastated to hear of the death of Sebastian just days before what would have been his 30th birthday.

"He leaves his wife Salma, his son Raheem born just a month ago, his mother Karron Meadows, brothers Nathanael, Chris, Jr, Joseph, one sister Emily and countless relatives and friends."

“Sebastian grew up in Hove in England but in the last few years made his life in Dubai where he had a wide circle of friends and was a leader in the adoption of a healthy lifestyle and of alternative therapies."

"As well as being a personal trainer and professional boxer, Sebastian was also a deep thinker who liked to challenge accepted wisdom."

"He was loved and respected by all who knew him and will be forever in the thoughts of friends and family. As a family we now kindly ask to be given space and privacy to celebrate his life and remember the son, the brother, the husband, the friend.”

One fan asked: "Why are they showing Eubank on tonight's show when his son has just died?"

Another added: "So sad to hear about Chris Eubank's son passing in Dubai! RIP Sebastian #Gogglebox"

While one viewer said "Woah, currently sat watching Gogglebox. RIP Sebastian Eubank, 29 is way too young."

"It's odd and really sad that the news of Chris Eubank's son's death while he's on Gogglebox" added another.

Sebastian was a vegan, with a love of poetry away from his time spent boxing.
