Gogglebox Jenny leaves viewers in hysterics with her 'bingo' comment on Vigil

Jenny from Gogglebox left viewers hysterical with her “classic” bingo one-liner about the BBC hit cop drama Vigil.

Led by Suranne Jones, Vigil saw Detective Amy Silva trying to find out who was behind a brutal murder aboard HMS Vigil.

The gripping six-part drama ended on Sunday night, which meant it had to be brought to the panel of gogglebox stars to share their thoughts.

And popular caravan beasts Jenny Newby and Lee Riley were among those who watched the police proceed to share their thoughts.

But rather than the twists and turns and revelations of the plot, it was the submarine environment that made Jenny wonder if she could handle it.

She said, “I couldn’t live down there all these months, could I, Lee?

“I like bingo and it must be terrible not being able to go out.”

Lee said, “I think everyone had this in lockdown, it was like living in a submarine.”

Twitter user ChristopherT_42 said: “I couldn’t live down there, I like to go to the classic bingo Jenny once a week.”

Llodyboy56 said, “Just give me an hour Jenny and Lee on Gogglebox.”

Vigil was unveiled as the most watched TV drama of 2021, with 10.2 million viewers in the first seven days.

The full series can now be seen on BBC iPlayer.

While Gogglebox is broadcast every Friday evening at 9 p.m. on channel 4, episodes after that are available on All4.
