Pete had never seen anything like it
His sister Sophie was stunned into silence
Meanwhile viewers of the Channel 4 show were horrified when the X-rated scene – involving a woman and a duck performing a sex act – flashed up on the telly.
The scene from Apple TV+ anthology series featured the woman being seduced by the duck and left many of the stars of the show looking traumatised.
Show favourite Giles turned to his wife Mary to question the mechanics of the scene.
He said: “The duck can’t physically…” before Mary quickly interjected: “Well he can Nutty, he can use his beak….”
Since the episode aired, 149 people have reached out to Ofcom, with the telly watchdog confirming that the Gogglebox complaints “related to clips from Apple TV’s Roar.”
The x-rated moment sparked a huge reaction on Twitter, with fans quick to slam Channel 4 for airing the scenes.
One person directly tweeted Channel 4‘s official account, raging: “Please don’t destroy our weekly family viewing.
“Dominatrix was bad enough, but nobody wants to watch a woman and a duck. No warning. No need.”
Echoing their comments, someone else fumed: “Gogglebox should not be promoting shows that are basically insinuating bestiality. That was absolutely disgusting!”
While another remarked: “Not sure what I’ve just watched there. It takes a lot to shock me, but that was something else.”
Despite the show leaving a sour taste in the mouth of some, others were still gushing over the appearance of Pete Sandiford‘s adorable baby son.
The fan favourite welcomed son Jimmy with his wife Paige Yeomans in September last year and the tot soon made his debut on the show.
