Gogglebox favourites Mary and Marina leave viewers in stitches with X-rated slip

They certainly didn't mean to say that!

Channel 4 viewers could barely believe their ears last night as Gogglebox's senior couch potato critics turned the air blue with a cheeky slip.

The Friday night (20.09.19) show opened in Bristol, dropping in on pals Mary and Marina as they reminisced about their youth.

Mary admitted she had been a keen singer when she was a child - giving both Marina and everyone watching at home a brief demonstration of her warbling.

An impressed Marina reckoned her friend should apply to show off her singing skills on Britain's Got Talent.

But a reluctant Mary shrugged off the thought, modestly responding: "Oh I couldn't be bothered."

She continued: "I should have done that when I was about 10 years old. I used to [bleep] 'em out then."
I meant sing them out, you know.

After a moment of confusion for Marina followed by a swift realisation of what she'd said from her misspeaking mate, Mary corrected herself.

"I meant sing them out, you know," she chuckled as Marina also tittered along.

Marina replied: "I know what you meant, Mary!"

For clarity, Mary's X-rated gaffe begins with 'w' and rhymes with 'plank'. How did that pop out of her mouth?

Fans went wild on social media over the mistake, with dozens of emoji-packed tweets containing gifs expressing extreme shock.

"[Bleep] them out??? #Gogglebox," repeated one incredulous Twitter user.

Oh we did have a laugh! (Credit:

"Mary saying 'I used to [bleep] one out about singing in her youth stopped me in my tracks! #Gogglebox," added another amused observer.

Someone who couldn't recall Mary and Marina's names contributed: "Them two old girls on Gogglebox make my life."

And another tickled viewer summed it up with: "Mary and Marina are the best! #Gogglebox."

- Gogglebox airs on Channel 4 on Fridays at 9pm
