    ‘It’s the worst form of mean, cruel television’: Kirstie Allsopp continues her vendetta against Gogglebox as she blames producers for allowing cast to attack one of her shows

    Kirstie Allsopp continued to take umbrage with Channel 4’s Gogglebox on Wednesday when she called the popular programme ‘mean’ and ‘cruel’.   

    Speaking to My Weekly magazine, the Location, Location, Location presenter, 49, said: ‘It’s one thing to talk about people in private but to put it in a public space is not entertainment.’ 

    The TV personality has previously lambasted the show after her programme Kirstie’s Crafty Christmas was slammed by Gogglebox’s armchair critics.

    Participants first took a pop at Kirstie’s festive arts and crafts programme in series 4 of Gogglebox, which has since been removed from All4.  

    Kirstie didn’t hold back as she condemned the popular Friday night programme in her latest rant. 

    The presenter said frankly: ‘One of my least favourite TV shows is Gogglebox. It’s the worst form of mean, cruel television.’ 

    She then described the show, which sees members of the public review the week’s television from their homes, as ‘stomach churning’.

    Fans have previously questioned Kirstie’s hatred of Gogglebox as all of her own programmes are broadcast on Channel 4. 

    Speaking about Channel 4’s potential privatisation last week, Kirstie said: ‘Folk say @Channel4 is too woke, and selling it appeals to anti woke voters, but they’ve had me front & centre for the last 20 years, and him indoors.

    ‘Much as I like to use correct & sensitive language and understand the issues of the day I hardly think Pip [co-star Phil Spencer] & I are woke central. 

    ‘I hate what Gogglebox did to my Christmas show, but that’s Channel 4 for you, they employ me yet still allow me to attack one of their shows.’ 

    ‘It is an amazing place to work, all the TV I have ever made is for Channel 4,’ she added. 

    Gogglebox has been running on Channel 4 since March 2013 and hit a record 6.5 million viewers last year to become one of the channel’s most popular programmes. 

    And Kirsty has been quick to explain that she blames the show’s producers, not its personalities, for what was said about her show. 

    Taking to Twitter in July 2019, she explained: ‘As I *may* have mentioned I loathe Gogglebox (because they tore Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas to threads which is a decision made by the producers not the participants; it’s all in the edit) 

    ‘But I have to admit I’m watching #celebritygooglebox and loving it,’ she added.
