Gogglebox returned tonight to Channel 4 as viewers tuned in to see their favourite families as they caught up on the week’s TV. However, it was the ending of the show which left some fans confused online as they took to Twitter to air their thoughts.
The television show had just cut to its credit sequence when the stream cut out.
Instead, it cut to a broken screen which read: “BT Tower HD/36 SDI Channel 4.”
Soon after, the channel came back on but the moment left viewers very confused.
Many took to Twitter to share their thoughts about the mishap.
Fan Onlyjoekin wrote: “Fuel shortages, driver shortages, worker shortages and now the tellys giving up too #Gogglebox.”(sic)
CelioCyl added: “What the hell was this all about?#Gogglebox.”
TheOfficialTom penned: “Well that was an abrupt ending to #Gogglebox on @Channel4.”
Then 7matthewalker said: “#Channel4 good job #Gogglebox had finished.”
Others were left concerned the broken screen signalled something else.
NotmynameGregg penned: “Says a lot about the world we live in that I immediately think major emergency when BT Tower broadcast screen comes up on #Gogglebox transmission.”
Another user called The_Worcester wrote: “#Channel4 died for a few seconds and I was fully ready for aliens to start announcing they were taking over #Gogglebox.”
“Well that was weird, thought London had been nuked for a second! #Channel4 #Gogglebox,”(sic) added Rantymcmoanface.
Channel 4 has been experiencing some technical issues over the past few days.
Last night, the channel aired an old episode of Married At First Sight UK instead of the final.
The broadcaster took to social media to apologise for the mishap and ongoing issues.
They penned: “Sadly we’re still experiencing some tech issues which means some viewers may have problems watching our channels or access services.
“Sorry for the ongoing disruption – we’ll let you know here as and when we have updates.”
Channel 4 had suffered a fire alarm earlier this week which led to a sprinkler taking down one of their systems.
On Saturday evening, some channels went off the air for a short amount of time.
Both Channel 4 and Channel 5 went off for around 30 minutes due to the issue.
