Some viewers were offended

The new series of Gogglebox has FINALLY arrived, making all of our Friday nights that bit more enjoyable – but there was one comment in particular that really stood out last night (February 21, 2020).

If you watched the episode, which was the first one of series 15, then it’s likely that aside from new faces, some hilarious takes on TV show Love Is Blind and Jenny asking if you can see her TenaLady, you heard Stephen’s comment on vaginas.

He used one particularly extreme description, where he said they smell ‘rancid’.

Stephen and his husband Daniel Lustig were discussing the topic of Gwyneth Paltrow’s famous vagina scented candles, while the news segment they were watching was covering Prince Harry and Meghan’s move to Canada.

Stephen said: “I wonder if Meghan will bring out a candle that says this smells like my vagina. That’s what Gwyneth Paltrow’s done.”

Out of interest, Daniel wanted a bit more detail on the topic, asking said: “What do vaginas smell like?”

Stephen firmly replied: “Rancid!” Charming.

Viewers were split on the topic. Some thought it was hilarious…

But others thought it wasn’t in great taste, voicing their opinions on Stephen’s, shall we say, colourful choice of words. Some viewers even branded his words ‘misogynistic’, questioning Channel 4’s decision to go ahead with broadcasting the clip.
