A ‘gaggle of gays’ to appear at the wedding?

Shirley has been married twice and engaged three times before, so this wouldn’t be a new experience for her.

Although it went down a storm with most viewers, some complained.

One viewer defended the routine, writing on Twitter: “Absolutely loved it. I presume all those complaining about it ‘being a family show’ have never considered taking their children to the pantomime?”
