Gogglebox fans criticized the decision to air a political interview, insisting the show “was fun.”
Meanwhile, one of them pointed out that they haven’t even watched the fan favorite Gordon, Gino and Fred show, this series yet.
“I used to watch Gogglebox for a laugh,” one wrote, before adding, “No more. “
Another said: “I wish they weren’t playing politics here. It’s supposed to be fun.
They haven’t looked at Gordon, Gino, and Fred on this yet. I wanna see them watch Taskmaster, Fed up with politics too#Gogglebox

What happened during the interview?
Andrew Marr spoke with Boris Johnson ahead of the Conservative Party conference.
He was asked about fuel shortages, energy prices, food prices and rising inflation, as well as the £ 20 cut in universal credit.
Goggleboxer Pete was angry, saying, “Inflation has gone through the [bleep] roof, so it costs more to live, but obviously Boris doesn’t see it that way with his £ 500 per role wallpaper.
Meanwhile, the Malones felt Boris was getting around the questions asked.

Other viewers who watched Gogglebox weren’t impressed with its coverage of the Korean hit Squid Game.
They said they were “appalled” that the actors were watching the drama with English dubbing rather than subtitles.
A Christmas commercial also ran during the first commercial break.
Viewers were surprised to see it considering it’s only early October and we haven’t had Halloween or Bonfire Night yet.
Although the ad makers laughed at what time they were themselves by showing tricks or disappointed healers to receive a thin pie as a Halloween treat.
Gogglebox airs on Channel 4 Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET.
