Celebrity Gogglebox viewers love Joanna’s reactions
The latest episode showed gory biopic film 127 hours, which Joanna found particularly shocking.
In the film, the main actor had to break and cut off his own arm when trapped by a boulder. Needless to say, Joanna was horrified.

Another shared: “Can Celebrity Gogglebox just have Emilia Fox and her mam? Joanna is just [bleep] hilarious.”
A third added: “Getting to see Emilia Fox and Joanna on Celebrity Gogglebox genuinely brings me so much joy. They’re so naturally funny, and I love them.”

However, some thought Joanna’s shrieks sounded like an alarm clock:

Although one viewer thought the actress sounded like she was being hurt: “Calm down Joanna David! You’d think it was her arm being cut off.”
Another joked at her roles in ITV’s Midsomer Murders: “Amazed Joanna is so jumpy, she’s been in Midsomer Murders with Anna Massey launching herself knife first at her.”
A third said: “Good grief, I’m not sure which was worse on Celebrity Gogglebox 127 hours and the guy cutting his arm off or Emilia Fox’s mum screaming!”
Celebrity Gogglebox airs on Channel 4 on Fridays at 9pm.
