Posting about the Priti Patel bullying enquiry, he wrote: "How a minister can claim that swearing and bullying staff which understandably causes major upset to them was not intentional? So what was the intention to make them laugh? #poppycock."

One of his followers replied: "Did, it's the old saying, 'It takes one to know one'!" Confused, Sid replied: "Yes I know the saying but what’s that got to do with this and who is Did? How many you had tonight Kay?" 

However, all ended well in the light-hearted exchange, and she replied: "Worse than that, Sid, I don't drink! Misread the tweet. Dementia on the way!" Sid graciously responded: "It’s ok Kay was just joking with you no worries."

Fans of Gogglebox have been loving seeing him back on the show after he was forced to miss the previous series due to lockdown restrictions.

Sid also recently had fans in stitches after taking his two cats out for walkies. Sharing snaps in September, the TV personality captioned the photos: "Walkies? This can only happen at Siddiquis." One fan wrote: "They do NOT look impressed," while another added: "Doesn’t only happen at your place. We took our cat Chloe out on a lead at our place in London. She got so many admirers."
