Another said: "@Rylan your mum is a star, she needs her own show. You and her would give @jackwhitehall and his dad a run for their money #celebritygogglebox."

Rylan and Linda were last famous faces to star in the latest run of Celebrity Gogglebox.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the son and mum had to bow out earlier over social distancing guidelines.

But Government rules changed, she was able to form a 'bubble' with her son.

In the past, Rylan revealed that he and Linda have been swamped with offers from TV execs.

Sadly, however, Linda suffers from Crohn's disease, so has been been forced to turn them down.

Rylan recently told the Daily Star: "We've been offered hundreds of things. We got asked to do a travel show and the chance to go here and go there.

"It would be hilarious, but she’s just not well enough to do it. Gogglebox is enough for us. She feels comfortable doing that show ­because we're just sat in my kitchen."
