Zoe Ball son: Who is Woody Cook? Meet Zoe’s son from The Circle

Zoe Ball is joined by her son Woody as the pair sit down together for the latest series of Celebrity Gogglebox. Woody may be a familiar face to some after his stint on The Circle last year but who is Woody Cook? Express.co.uk takes a look at Zoe’s famous son.

Woody first hit our screens when he appeared on the Channel 4 reality show The Circle last September.

The show gives contestants the opportunity to take on their fantasy persona as they keep away from each other in their separate flats.

The show saw Woody keep true to himself and went on to capture the nation with his likeable charm.

Talking about his venture into reality TV, Woody’s dad Norman spoke of how he didn’t want Woody to have a career in the spotlight.

He told The Mirror: “Me and his mother both thought it could be a potentially terrible idea.”

He went on to say: “We didn’t really want him to do it.

“The thing is, we spent all our lives trying to keep him out of the limelight and trying to protect him.

“Then the first chance he dives straight into that whole maelstrom that we tried to protect him from, but I suppose it’s in his genes.”

Norman also joked that if he went on Love Island, he would disown Woody.

He said: “We would disown him if he does Love Island.”

Woody took to Instagram to tell his more than 109,000 followers of his return to TV.

Woody wrote: “I’m super excited to announce that me and my Mum are joining this year’s cast of #celebritygogglebox.


“I can’t wait to be back on your screens on such an awesome show, joined by the incredible Wilbur (our cat) and of course my lovely mother.”

Zoe and Woody’s father Norman were married for 17 years before splitting in 2016.

As well as Woody, Zoe and Norman also have a daughter together called Nelly.

Talking to Express.co.uk in 2014, Zoe spoke of how she loves being a mother.

Zoe said: “I love being a mum, but it’s not an easy job.

“You are constantly learning, and often your kids end up teaching you.

“Woody has got to that point where he is so bright I can barely help him with his homework because it is beyond my capability.”

Celebrity Goggle box continues tonight (Friday, July 3) on Channel 4 at 9pm.
