If anybody had said that a television show about ordinary people watching television and discussing the shows could ever be a smash hit, we’d probably have told them just to drive the taxi and cut the chat – but that’s what happened with Gogglebox.
One pair of viewers from the show, Northern Irish Mary and her public school-educated husband Giles, have become firm favourites for their *coughs* unusual outlook, which is perfectly illustrated by this recent clip.
Gogglebox Giles and Mary watching a dancing prawn being unveiled as Stacey Dooley in The Masked Dancer is somehow one of the most brutal criticisms I have ever seen on the show. pic.twitter.com/DBxZGnyQI6

“I would hate to be in a nursing home and have this on in the background and die to this.”
“Imagine if your last memory of this world was that prawn dancing.”
It’s completely on brand – and tweeters loved it.

It wasn’t the most ringing endorsement ever, but if you’re curious – this is what they were so brutally reviewing.
