And another commented, ‘#GOGGLEBOX Where’s Giles and Mary tho? @C4Gogglebox’

But luckily, there’s no need to panic, as the creator of the show Tania Alexander quickly reassured fans that the their absence was only temporary.

Replying to one fan on Twitter, she explained that the pair were simply on holiday, and would be back next week, writing, ‘On hols. Back next week 😘’. Phew!

In the rest of the episode, viewers watched on as the Gogglebox clan shared their thoughts on everything from Line of Duty to Netflix’s new David Attenborough documentary, Our Planet.

At one point, fans of the show were also left in hysterics, as star Pete Sandiford flashed his bum on camera, after showing his new ‘Kylie pants’ to his sister Sophie.

Pete revealed he was going on a fancy dress night out, and had inspiration from the popular songstress for his outfit.

He confessed, ‘You’ll never guess what I’m doing at weekend; going on a pub crawl, fancy dress.

‘The lads are going dressed up as girls, so I thought hang on a minute, why don’t I go as Kylie. Because I’ve got the arse, so I thought why not?’
