Gogglebox star Marcus has famous son who’s banned from appearing on Channel 4 show

Gogglebox star Marcus Luther has a secret son called Shiloh Defreitas, who is banned from ever appearing on the Channel 4 programme.

Marcus and his partner Mica Ven, who put on a loved-up display in a rare red carpet appearance previously, have become firm favourites of fans with their hysterical opinions since 2018. While the pair share son Yash together, it's not well known that both of them have children from previous relationships.

Mica is also mum to daughters Sachelle and Shuggy, while Marcus has Shiloh, who is a famous boxer who goes by the name Sugar Shy.

Although the Marcus and Mica's children all appear on Gogglebox, Shiloh never has and never will as he's "too aggressive".


Marcus, who is a boxing coach away from the show and has overseen his son's career, previously spoke out about Shiloh's absence from the programme as he told the BBC: "Gogglebox is not for everyone. Not everyone can 'Goggle'. [Shiloh's] too aggressive."

Shiloh actually did do some filming for the show with his family, but it never made it on air. Marcus continued: “Me and him just argued so I told him to sling his hook. The producers were trying to help him out but then he'd go off on one again.

"No Gogglebox for him, he's a fighter.”

Marcus, who runs TM Boxing in London that aims to help disadvantaged children, also spoke about his relationship with Shiloh as he said: "Shy told me that he'd never let me pull him out of a fight and would rather die in the ring – but he's my baby.

"He doesn't want me to throw in the towel but am I going to sit there and watch my son potentially die in the ring?

"We love the sport but I'll always choose my boy over boxing, any day of the week.”

Marcus, whose other half recently shared a rare snap of their kids, replied: "I love you more than life itself @sugarshy_. I believe God has so much in store for you and I knew it from the first time I put a pair of boxing gloves on you.

"Now we're getting closer and you're fully focused, all them wimps had better watch out star," alongside three fist emojis.
