Gogglebox viewers were left feeling rather awkward after an explicit clip was aired on the show from the programme Sex, Actually. 

In the clip, Alice Levine was seen sitting in the corner of a bedroom while a couple who earn their living streaming themselves having sex on adult websites performed sex acts in front of her. 

The Geordie couple had invited Alice to see exactly what their job entails first-hand, but revealed that they’d only had one viewer for the session Alice sat in on, earning them £40. 

It wasn’t just Alice who was left not knowing where to look, as the Gogglebox families were also seen cringing at the surprising scenes. 

Pete Sandiford was seen looking on in disbelief while his sister Sophie could barely contain her giggles. 

The Malone family were then seen hiding their faces behind cushions as the footage all got to be a bit too much.

How come #Gogglebox is absolutely fine to watch with your teens one minute and then the absolute worse thing to watch with them the next! Did it used to be so graphic? 🤔

Jenny Newby, meanwhile, was seen exclaiming: ‘Oh, just up my street, this. I love it! Come on, bring it on!’

Viewers were also left feeling pretty uncomfortable after sitting down for a spot of Friday night television with their parents or teenage children, only to be faced with the explicit act. 

They took to Twitter to share their feelings, writing: ‘watching gogglebox with my parents just got a bit awkward.’

Others joked: ‘someone help me, I’m watching gogglebox with my parents rn’ and ‘i’m watching gogglebox with my family rn and i’m not loving it.’

Viewers who had settled down with family members of different generations added: ‘How come #Gogglebox is absolutely fine to watch with your teens one minute and then the absolute worse thing to watch with them the next! Did it used to be so graphic?’
