Gogglebox fans are calling for one of the most popular couples on the programme to be axed after Friday night’s episode (May 6). It comes as people were troubled by some of the pair’s comments which were aired on Channel 4 – but now things have escalated with viewers.

As part of the show, viewers were shown a clip of a Good Morning Britain interview between Susanna Reid and Boris Johnson. During the interview, Susanna asked Boris Johnson about the case of a 77-year-old woman, who is struggling with her heating bills, reports Manchester Evening News.

Elsie is struggling so much, she’s forced to ride the bus all day just to keep warm. Boris Johnson replied that he had made that possible thanks to bringing in free bus passes for the elderly.

Of course, the clip didn’t go down well with most people, who were outraged by the Prime Minister’s response. But the reaction of Gogglebox duo Giles and Mary rubbed people up even further the wrong way.

Mary said: “I am very sorry for Elsie but Susanna is making out it is Boris fault and like he doesn’t care.” Giles asks her: “Whose fault is it?” Mary replies: “Well it is the global situation.” This angered many fans who took to Twitter to share their views. User @HellyB3 said: “#Gogglebox get rid of Mary.”

Eleanor Jennings said: “#Gogglebox Mary cries her eyes out at nothing every week until it comes to real stuff. Then all she can do is defend Johnson. Horrid woman.” @JennyCostello slammed: “Is Mary being serious? She would NEVER make those excuses for anyone else.”

@MsSC1986 said: “She’s a true blue through-and-through. It’s a pity. They are so entertaining but the unwavering support for the Tories is troubling.” @Gingerokda begged: “Please @Channel4 get rid of Mary & Giles. They are so out of touch & awful. #gogglebox”

@laaaan12 tweeted: “Dear #gogglebox can you please just cancel Giles and Mary?” Other fans enjoyed the varied response Mary’s comments got.

Twitter user @_MFrank96 said: “I agree with Twitter that Mary is out of touch and I certainly don’t agree with her. But the beauty of #Gogglebox is diversity and able to express opinion, even if it is different from your own. She and Giles can’t be axed because you disagree with them.” The MEN contacted Channel 4 for comment.
