“Wow #ItsClarksonOnTV is properly awful,” said a fourth, scathingly. “Canned laughter at clearly unfunny script and slating anyone promoting climate change awareness. What are @ITV up to?”

A fifth demanded: “How objectionable can a programme get? #itsclarksonontv.”

“Just hilarious,” said one fan. “Like a comedy from the past. Well needed.”

He also joked men can’t enjoy period dramas like Bridgerton and poked fun at some of the police lingo in Line of Duty – saying the acronym ‘CHIS’ sounded like something a lot ruder.

Some viewers compared the show to the likes of Harry Hill’s TV Burp.
