Gogglebox cast fume at Holly Willoughby for grilling guest on This Morning

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

The Gogglebox cast are famed for their no-nonsense approach to the best telly of the week – and national treasure Holly Willoughby was in the firing line last Friday.

The presenter, who turned 40 back in February, was joined by Minister of Health Matt Hancock on This Morning earlier in the week.

Gogglebox's stars tuned into the This Morning segment on the show, sharing their thoughts on Holly and Phillip Schofield's discussion with the MP.

The interview took place outdoors, with the ITV crew making the most of the good weather with a cheerful picnic spread.

With Mr Hancock sitting behind a gingham table cloth, he chatted about the lifting of restrictions with the This Morning hosts.

However, when Holly grilled the MP on whether there would be another lockdown, the Gogglebox cast was quick to knock her approach.

She quizzed: "The one thing everybody really is concerned about and wants to know is, is this the final lockdown? Is this it now, are we on the road to recovery?"

Mary Killen, who stars on the show alongside husband Giles Wood, exclaimed: "How can he know? She can't ask that? He can't know that?"

Meanwhile, Louis, who has appeared on Gogglebox with the Michaels family since the show's 2013 inception, fumed: "It's a b******t question and he is going to give a b******t answer?"

Mr Hancock was unable to answer Holly's question with a straightforward answer, instead admitting he hoped another lockdown wouldn't be necessary.

"Well, I think so, I very much hope so," he replied.

Elsewhere in the episode, best mates Jenny Newby and Lee Riley had viewers entertained when they shared their genius hack for watching Line of Duty.

The BBC police drama has been gripping the nation with the arrival of season six, but the complicated storylines have often left Jenny stumped.

In a clever twist, Jenny admitted she uses a notepad to jot down all the clues from the show, helping to piece everything together.

Watching the show with Lee, they witnessed DCI Joanna Davidson getting served with a Regulation 15 notice.

Thrilled, Jenny admitted she'd already figured it out, informing Lee: "I've got that here! I told you that didn't I, we needed a Regulation 15!"

One penned: "Can we take a Moment to Appreciate Jenny and her Notes on #LineofDuty… We've all been there at some point! #JennyandLee ".

"I've never felt more love than I felt watching Jenny make notes about Line of Duty on #Gogglebox," added a second.

A third remarked: "Jenny making her notes on # LINEOFDUTY6 is possibly my favourite thing to happen so far this year #Gogglebox ".

Gogglebox returns on Friday at 9pm on Channel 4.
