BAFTA audience refuse to clap Gogglebox as they win award

BAFTA TV Award viewers were left confused on Sunday night (May 8) as the audience appeared to snub Gogglebox. The Channel 4 show won Best Reality and Constructed Factual.

They beat The Dog House, Married At First Sight UK and RuPaul's Drag Race UK. Several cast and crew members took to the stage to accept the award.

Stars Marcus, Mica, Lee and the show's creator Stephen Lambert celebrated on the podium. However, as Lee began his thank you speech, the camera panned to the audience which saw some not clapping, reports BirminghamLive.

And when Lee made a joke about a duck, which referred to an x-rated clip the Gogglebox families were recently shown, there was a moment of silence. Viewers took to Twitter to comment. Bethan @bethanlooms tweeted: "The audience seem quite snobby not wanting to clap for Gogglebox winning at the #Baftas LOL"

Twitter user @LadyFerny commented: "Snobs not clapping for gogglebox." Meanwhile, Juli @JuliSavage666 wrote: "Duck mention, down like a lead balloon."

Lisa also noticed the frosty reception, adding: "#BAFTAS that went down like a lead balloon ... And they walked off quickly... Hmmmm."
