Gogglebox viewers split after Ellie and Izzi’s fish and chips with tea debate

Do you like a cup of tea with fish and chips?

Gogglebox viewers had mixed reactions to one revelation about cups of tea and fish and chips last night that seemingly divided the nation.

Leeds-based Ellie and Izzi revealed they love nothing more than a cup of tea when they eat fish and chips, and a full debate broke out on social media.

Whilst some viewers agreed with the girls, many were horrified at their guilty pleasure.

What did Gogglebox viewers say?

Some Gogglebox viewers agreed with Ellie and Izzi that the perfect drink for fish and chips is a cup of tea.

However, not all those watching agreed. Some were disgusted at the idea of having a brew with a fish and chip supper.

That is a crime.

One viewer tweeted: “A cup of tea with fish and chips… wtf is wrong with these folk!?”

Another also hated the combination, tweeting: “Of all the gross habits, swigging tea while eating is very low down on the list, surely.”

Some Gogglebox viewers could not get over the combination. One even went so far as joke it was a ‘crime’.

The debate continued on social media with some viewers claiming it was ‘peak British’.

Gogglebox stars Mary and Marina warm hearts with their singing performance

Those watching Channel 4 last night were also treated to another cup of tea moment – this time, by best friends Mary and Marina.

The elderly pair sang along to Binnie Hale’s 1937 hit A Nice Cup of Tea, and delighted viewers at home.

The best friends were word perfect as they sang along with Channel 5’s Yorkshire Tea Vs PG Tips: Battle of the Brews.

One viewer tweeted: “Sorry, Mary and Marina singing the tea song is my new favourite thing.”

Another agreed. They tweeted: “Mary and Marina singing about a cup of tea… they’re so precious.”

Gogglebox continues on Friday from 9pm on Channel 4.
