Gyles Brandreth was watching TV with his girlfriend Maureen Lipman when he asked her what she thought of his sunglasses.
“The sunglasses are very Jack Nicholson, yes,” Maureen says calmly, to which Gyles replies, “I had a feeling they were more like Tom Cruise.”
Then he revealed why his fashionable sunglasses were necessary.
When he shows a great glow in his right eye, Maureen gasps, “Oh my god.”
How did Gyles Brandreth get a black eye?
He’s making up a hilarious reason, of course.
On social media, fans were thrilled to find out more – but there were no answers.
Double standards tweeted: “#PromiGogglebox What did Giles do to his face, this man is damn brilliant, so funny [sic]. “
The same question came from Siobhan: “What happened to Giles Eye? #PromiGogglebox[sic]. “
Jay tweeted: “#PromiGogglebox yeah, but how did Gyles get the black eye ?! “
Owen said, “I bet everyone who looks at this now wants to know the real reason for Gyles’ black eye.”
Maybe he’ll tell us next week.
