GOGGLEBOX is facing an Ofcom investigation, The Sun Online can exclusively reveal, after it left viewers horrified by a graphic turkey sex scene.
Fans of the show felt forced to complain to broadcast regulator Ofcom after they were left disgusted by a very explicit segment on turkey insemination on the show.
The offending clip was from Autumn at Jimmy’s Farm and showed in extremely graphic detail how artificial insemination is performed on turkeys.
Horrifying the Gogglebox families, Julie Malone exclaimed: “Oh don’t tell me he’s going to w**k a turkey!”
While Mary and Marina cackled at the sight, saying: “He’s giving him a little tickle – I bet he likes that!”
The graphic demonstration revealed the farm used a mix of natural mating and artificial insemination, surprising families by revealing that turkeys don’t have penises.
Farmer Jimmy explained the process, which involved using his little finger to stimulate the production of sperm.
Viewers at home were as shocked as the Gogglebox families, taking to Twitter in their droves to share their disgust.
One wrote: “I have just watched a man pleasure a turkey”
Another added: “Oh my god catching up with #Gogglebox after being out for a few socially distanced and with govt guidelines gin cocktails – seeing that turkey segment both cracked me up and repulsed me in equal measure!”
A third and fourth added: “Eeeeeooooo!!!!! Noooo!!!!! Leave that turkey alone man!!!!!” and “That turkey scene on gogglebox was mad and I can’t ever unsee that”.
Some viewers reckoned the scene had ruined Christmas for them and that they’d never be able to eat turkey again.
One penned: “Right….that’s turkey off the Christmas dinner menu now (forever in fact)”
“I’m having beef for Christmas,” added a second.
And a third added: “I don’t eat turkey and watching that episode has confirmed that I never will again. Left a nasty taste in my mouth!”
You’ll never complain about your job again once you’ve seen what turkey farmers have to do for a living, that’s for sure. Gogglebox airs on Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.
