Celebrity Gogglebox has been hit by almost 200 Ofcom complaints over Shaun Ryder and Bez’s jokes about drugs.
The TV regulator began receiving complaints earlier this month since the programme began airing over the pair’s drugs-related jokes.
Last Friday, the Happy Mondays stars had been watching an episode of First Dates when Shaun quipped: “My chat up line used to be, ‘Do you want a line?’.”
They went on to joke about “ounces and eights” and when speaking about plans to reduce social distancing, Shaun said that he didn’t know how far a metre was.
He quipped: “I know how many grams are in an ounce.”
But Bez warned: “You should keep that knowledge to yourself, mate.”
Bez and Shaun went on to watch Al Pacino classic Scarface and spoke about their own experiences with drugs.
“When this film came out the cocaine in the country was absolutely ‘s***’,” Shaun admitted.
Meanwhile Bez quipped: “If it was me and my first deal went like that, I wouldn’t bother again. It goes to show, don’t do business with people you don’t know.
“This is a classic example of how not to do it.”
However, the regulatory body told The Sun that most of the complaints were about social distancing.
This comes despite production company Studio Lambert, who makes Gogglebox, has altered the way they film the show by getting the cast to operate their own cameras.
