The Twitter user replied to a question on the social media platform which read: "[You're] alone in a room with three men, but [you] feel safe. Who are those men?" simply with a photo of Umar, Baasit and Sid from the show. The tweet received over 60,000 likes, and Baasit replied, writing: "Thanks Joe. Really very kind of you to say," before tagging his sibling and dad in the post.

Fellow Gogglebox fans were quick to agree, with one writing: "They’re definitely the most relatable of anyone on Gogglebox. I suppose it’s no coincidence I’m from the same part of the world as them so maybe that’s it. We’re sensible folk round there."

Another added: "It’s impossible to beat that answer. My daughter and I were only saying the same thing the other week - they just exude gentle, respectful, masculine protection." A third person replied: "You would be given a good cuppa and for some reason am thinking a maths lesson." 

People also had plenty of other suggestions to reply to the tweet, with fellow Gogglebox stars Tremaine, Twaine and Tristan Plummer also being a popular choice alongside Would I Lie To You panellists, Rob Brydon, Lee Mack and David Mitchell.

Are you a fan of the Siddiqui family?

It has been a turbulent time for Gogglebox at the moment after a former crew member accused the show of having unacceptable working conditions. Speaking to The Guardian, they said: "People have had enough. You don't turn up to work to be screamed at for 12 hours a day," the former crew member said. "It was the worst job I ever did. The way that it's made is inhumane at times."

In response to the accusations, a spokesperson for the production company told HELLO!: "Studio Lambert takes the welfare of its teams extremely seriously across all its productions," adding that they have "a number of measures in place to encourage people to come forward with any concerns they may have, as well as support systems for a range of issues."
