Gogglebox 2021 star Mary Killen has been criticised by viewers for saying “men don’t giggle”.
During Friday night’s show return, Mary and husband Giles were reacting to a scene from Mediums.
It saw a family trying to get in touch with late loved ones as a medium called Nicole started to talk in a deep voice.
What did Mary and Giles say on Gogglebox?
Nicole then suddenly started speaking in a high-pitched squeaky voice, as she seemingly delivered a message from the family’s late loved one.
As they watched the medium speak, Giles admitted he wouldn’t be able to contain his laughter.
He told his wife: “I would have burst out giggling by now.”
“Men don’t giggle”
However, Mary exclaimed: “Not giggling! Men don’t giggle.”
Giles added: “Giggling.”
Viewers took objection to Mary’s comment and shared their thoughts on Twitter.
One person said: “Mary on #Gogglebox ‘men don’t giggle’ what a thing to say.”
Another wrote: “Mary said ‘men don’t giggle.’ Whaaaaa?” [Sic]
