Viewers unhappy with ‘bitter’ Gogglebox reactions to Scarlett winning I’m A Celeb

This hasn’t gone down well.

Scarlett Moffatt being crowned Queen of the I’m A Celebrity jungle was celebrated around the country. The 26-year-old from County Durham is an incredibly popular figure amongst the general public, and she was very clearly cock-a-hoop about winning what is her own personal favourite TV show.

Gogglebox, the addictive Channel 4 programme that launched her on the road to celebrity, had thus far weirdly ignored IACGMOOH and Moffatt’s involvement – exactly why remains unclear. But on Friday they finally broadcast their array of sofa-dwellers reacting to their co-star’s coronation.

Except it was all a bit of an anti-climax. Only the Gilbey family, Louis from the Michael family, and Nikki from the Tapper family seemed particularly excited…or remotely happy. The rest ranged from disinterested looks to forced smiles through gritted teeth. The viewing public were not happy it to say the least…

Is all that a bit unfair? Judge for yourself…
