It’s safe to say that some viewers are NOT impressed with Gogglebox right now.
Why’s this? Well, it’s all because of a cup. And no, we’re not joking.
Basically, on last Friday’s episode, a Rangers FC fan mug could be seen on new Scottish family the Manuels’ coffee table.
However, by the time the catch-up episode had aired on Sunday, said mug had been completely blurred out. Intriguing.
Of course, this caused a bit of a stir among footie fans, with a number of supporters firing off miffed Tweets.
One wrote: ‘So channel 4 have blurred out the guy on gogglebox’s coffee mug because people have complained it’s a rangers one. What a sad existence.’
Even Bridgeton Loyal Supporters Club – whose logo featured on the item in question – Tweeted: ‘Any particular reason why our clubs mug was blurred out on the Sunday repeat and catch up #Gogglebox [sic].’
The group had earlier seemed pretty pleased that they were on the show, writing alongside a picture of the cup: ‘Tonight’s Gogglebox Ch4 new family and one of these making an appearance.’
So why did it end up getting blurred? Channel 4 have explained to The Scottish Sun: ‘We apologise for any offence caused by this oversight which breached protocols on promotional items appearing on the show.
‘As soon as we became aware we took immediate action to ensure it was no longer visible in repeats or on All 4.’
Bridgeton Loyal Supports Club were actually asked to comment on The Sun‘s story. Which they did in AMAZING form.
They posted two images, telling fans: ‘We had to comment on this.’ Just take a look…
