Gogglebox slammed for revealing huge Game of Thrones and Line of Duty 'spoilers'

Fans rage on social media as Game Of Thrones episode is given away

Fans of Gogglebox are seething after the Channel 4 show revealed the ending of the latest Game Of Thrones episode.

Viewers looked on in horror last night as the Gogglebox cast reacted to the Battle of Winterfell unfolding.

The bloodthirsty GoT episode was aired on UK TV on Monday night, meaning fans have had almost a week to watch it.

But that didn't stop them airing their grievances about the Gogglebox 'gaffe' on social media.

If you haven't already seen the latest Game Of Thrones episode, you might want to look away now.

In the nail-biting installment – described by the Gogglebox narrator as "the moment the world had been waiting for" – Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams) is seen stabbing the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) to death during the Battle of Winterfell.

And as the drama unfolded in front of them, Gogglebox cast members including Jenny and Lee, and Ellie and Izzi, spoke in detail about what was happening.

How about giving us a spoiler alert?!?!

What the show's producers must not have known is that some Game Of Thrones fans were STILL waiting to see this climactic moment.

"I cannot be the only one furious at #C4 and #gogglebox ruining #got why the spoilers!!" added another.

However one fan did point out: "It's almost been a full week since that episode was released... so they cannot complain about spoilers."

It's not the first time Gogglebox has been under fire for revealing spoilers. The show has also been blasted for ruining episodes of Line Of Duty.
