WATCH: Gogglebox Couple Tom and Wayne Talk Marriage Equality

Melbourne couple Tom and Wayne from reality TV show Gogglebox have spoken about why they want to get married in a new video by the Equality Campaign.

“Equality is important to us because I think it’s about time. We’ve been together for seventeen years,” Tom says in the video.

“It’s not just about the ring, it’s about showing the world that we’re together.”

Wayne explains that his mother passed away 18 months ago before the laws could be changed.

“My mum’s greatest wish was to see us married,” Wayne said.

“She held my hand and said ‘I love you,’ and ‘Look after Tom.'”

The pair will return to our TV screens when Googlebox returns on October 4, on Foxtel’s LifeStyle channel, and October 5 on Channel Ten.
