Celebrity Gogglebox 2021 star Dame Maureen Lipman walked off the show after objecting to watching Channel 4 dating show, Naked Attraction.
The legendary comic actress and Corrie star, 75, made the claim after she appeared on last Friday’s show (June 4).
She had already criticised show bosses for editing and leaving out some of her “witty” lines.
What did Maureen Lipman say about Celebrity Gogglebox 2021?
Speaking with the Radio Times, Dame Maureen said: “I’d seen Gogglebox and I thought: ‘Oh, [ours] is the grown-up version, is it?'”
Dame Maureen then described the moment she and watching partner Gyles Brandreth were made to watch infamous dating show, Naked Attraction.
She said: “I’m going to go on, and make a lot of comment now about the oeuvre and ‘I did like his first trilogy, but then I felt in some ways that perhaps over the years…’ 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.'”
Her wittiest moments were ‘cut’
Only last week, Dame Maureen bemoaned the fact that her “wittiest” comments were edited out.
Appearing on This Morning with Gogglebox partner Giles, she said: “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.
“We say really witty things don’t we Gyles?
“However, it’s cut in favour of us going ‘Ew!’ and ‘What’s that? Oh, I didn’t realise people were growing aubergines like that?'”
Who else was on Celebrity Gogglebox?
It wasn’t just Maureen who is having trouble with Celebrity Gogglebox.
Lorraine Kelly and daughter Rosie made their debuts on last week’s show, and the daytime TV host divided opinion.
One viewer said on Twitter: “Lorraine and Rosie hardly had any opinions #celebritygogglebox.”
However, another wrote: “Nice to see Lorraine Kelly being normal at home instead of her bubbly TV celeb persona…”
