Gogglebox under fire as furious fans complain to Ofcom about 'homophobic jokes'

GOGGLEBOX fans are raging at a moment in last week's episode and have taken their complaints to Ofcom.

The media regulator received complaints about 'homophobic jokes' in last week's episode which saw fan favourite, Pete Sandiford, dress in lacy lingerie and fishnets.

The TV favourite was tricked into finding an attention-grabbing costume by his sister Sophie, who couldn't contain her amusement at his Halloween get up.

Sophie giggled as Pete made his way into their living room wearing the eye-popping outfit.

Fans couldn't believe their eyes when he finally came into view, wearing a curly wig, fishnet stockings, a sheer lace bodysuit, and a tiny miniskirt.

He moaned: "Oh my God, I'm going to have to take these heels off – how do women wear this s**t?"


Pete continued: "I look like a d***head, honestly – this outfit says: 'I'm getting c**k tonight'."

His sister replied: "That is the look we were going for," with Pete hitting back: "Well it's not the look I want to give off!"

While plenty of people were on board with Pete's choice of outfit, there were many who did not like the comments he made.

The media regulator received multiple complaints about homophobic comments on last week's show.

An Ofcom spokeswoman confirmed to The Sun Online that, complaints "were mainly about alleged homophobic comments and 2 complaints about Giles’ description of Bill Bailey as a 'sex tourist'."

Other complaints to Ofcom this week about the Channel 4 show came over Giles Woods' scathing review of Bill Bailey's attempts to Cha Cha with his Strictly partner Oti Mabuse.

Last week he did the Cha Cha to Pata Pata by Miriam Makeba while wearing a chequered shirt and yellow trousers and even played a bit of piano for good measure.


But Giles' was less than impressed and had a unique take on Bill's performance.

"He looks like a sex tourist. Look at that movement Mary," he told his wife, Mary Killen.

Mary agreed saying it was: "Embarrassing."

While viewers flocked to Twitter to laugh at Giles' gibe, many people were not impressed and took to the media regulator complained.
