WATCH: Celebrity Gogglebox viewers grossed out by moment

Gyles usually appears on Celebrity Gogglebox alongside his good pal Dame Maureen Lipman, who recently voiced her annoyance at the Channel 4 show due to their show selection. Speaking to Radio Times about leaving the show during Naked Attraction, which looks at contestants as they choose a potential romantic partner by their genitalia, she explained: "They're not really interested in our opinions on what they're giving us. I'd seen Gogglebox and I thought, 'Oh, [ours] is the grown-up version, is it?’

"But it's your reaction to 12 dangling willies they want. They're searching for ways to make me go, 'Urgh!' So I thought, 'Well, actually, no, life is too short to watch a series of hopeless men dangle their bits and pieces in my direction.' So I'm going."​​​​​​​

She previously told This Morning: "I thought that I was going into something where I was going to be a sort of female Will Self and I was going to comment on people. I didn't realise they were just going to show us lots and lots of mens' bits. We say really witty things and it all gets cut in favour of us going, 'Ew!' and 'What's that? Oh, I didn't realise people were growing aubergines like that!'"
