He confessed that he wants his future children and grandkids to see the relationship that he had with his dad.
According to the Mirror, he said: “Gogglebox I do because it’s with my dad [Martin Kemp].
“Literally, the reason I chose Gogglebox is that I know that when I’m older and when he’s not here anymore, I can say to my kids and my grandkids ‘this was the relationship I had with my dad’. So that’s why I do it.”
However, although Roman is happy to join his family on the sofa, he wouldn’t want to collaborate in the musical sense.

When asked if he’d be open to start a band with his musical family, he said he ‘wouldn’t be able’ to do it.
Roman explained: “During lockdown, my mum, dad and my sister lived together and everyday I would get sent videos of them round a piano or one of them with a guitar- the cringiest thing ever. I love them but I wouldn’t be able to enter the band.”
Celebrity Gogglebox airs on Channel 4, tonight, from 9pm.
