Gogglebox stars Giles and Mary argued on the show last night (March 19) after she told him he was “angry” with Prince Philip.
The TV favorites got into a debate after seeing footage of the 99-year-old prince leaving the hospital.
While other gogglebox stars praised the prince and said it was nice to see him out of the hospital, Giles offered a different point of view.
What did Giles and Mary say on Gogglebox?
The BBC News clip showed Prince Philip walking out of the hospital after his month-long stay.
When the Gogglebox stars expressed their delight at seeing him leave in a car, Mary said, “He’s still handsome.”

In another view, however, the prince looked gaunt and pale.
“It looks a little different there,” added Mary.
It was then Giles who stepped in: “He looks a little reptilian.”
Mary told Giles to stop being angry
The news report then stated that the Duke of Edinburgh was only 90 days away from his 100th birthday, a milestone he was dying to celebrate.
“Let’s just hope he doesn’t choke on a lozenge, Mary,” Giles said bizarrely.
Oh stop being angry
“Oh, stop being angry,” snapped Mary back. “Why should he even have a lozenge?”
“When you get old, there are all sorts of dangers,” replied Gile.
