Andrew Bennett, who appears on Gogglebox alongside best friend Fawn, was reportedly taken to Sunderland Royal hospital on Saturday after he was attacked in front of his friends and family.

A source close to Andrew told The Sun: “He was attacked in the early hours of the morning on Saturday.

“He'd been out with his family and friends and was jumped while walking down the street. He had some really nasty injuries and is still in hospital.

“He’s really shocked but is determined to catch the person who attacked him and reported it to police the next morning from hospital.”

The source added: “Andrew has been asking anyone with information or who witnessed the incident to get in touch with police.”

Northumbria Police told the publication: "At 11.18am on Saturday December 1, we received a report of an assault on Vine Place, Sunderland.

“A 43-year-old man was pushed over and suffered minor injuries.

“He was taken to hospital as a precaution and officers later spoke with him at his home address."

They added: "Police believe the offender was known to the victim and enquiries into the incident are ongoing."

Andrew and best pal Fawn made their debut appearance on Gogglebox back in September.

The pair, from South Shields, leave viewers in stitches as they chat about the latest TV shows with their gin and tonic in huge glasses.

Andrew and Fawn’s joint Twitter account hasn’t featured any new posts since last Friday.

The pair uploaded a picture of themselves with shocked expressions on their faces ahead of that night's episode.

The caption read: “Well folks it’s.... Friday @GoggleboxFawnandAndrew

installed for viewers this evening. Your Questions to the PM: BBCAskThis, I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here, The Andrew Marr Show, Dynasties, Mrs Wilson, The Apprentice. (sic)”

They added: “Ice and a slice ready.”

Andrew and Fawn were among a few new faces which were added to series 12 of Gogglebox.

They made their debut alongside Beryl and her scientist husband John and pair Abby and Georgia.

Gogglebox airs tonight on Channel 4 at 9pm.
