Whilst it was her debut show, the This Country star quickly settled in and her cursing and blunt comments quickly won over viewers.

One viewer loved the realness of Daisy's pyjamas outfit: "I love the fact that Daisy May Cooper doesn't give a [bleep] that she's on the telly and she's in her pj's. Who dresses to watch TV anyway? I'm straight into comfies as soon as I'm in from work."

Not everyone was a fan though

Although Daisy won many viewers over with her humour, there were plenty who didn't understand who she was. Some Gogglebox even mistook her and dad Paul for non-celebrities.

Another said: "Ok watching #CelebrityGogglebox BUT who are Daisy and Paul."

A third shared: "NGL I don't know who daisy is."
