Gogglebox hailed by fans for 'speaking for the nation' over Downing Street party

GOGGLEBOX fans have praised the show's stars for "speaking for the nation" after the outcry over a party held at Downing Street during lockdown.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson faced a backlash after it emerged staff had had a Christmas gathering last year.

The Goggleboxers watched a news segment which showed the PM’s spokeswoman Allegra Stratton resign after a leaked video showed her laughing about the event.

"Get your stories straight," Giles commented as the disastrous clip of Allegra continued.

A enraged Helena added: "Look at them laughing their heads off the bunch of t**ts."

Fan favourite Pete Sandiford said: "Over 500 a day were dying, and she's laughing about a party in Downing Street."

While his sister, Sophie, had some humour to add, joking: "She hasn't got an Allegra to stand on."

Helena and her mum had the last word and seemed to sum up the feeling of fans watching at home.

"They're laughing at us, they're laughing at the NHS and all the hard work everybody's done," Helena started, while her mum added, "[it's] disrespectful, it's crass."

Fans rushed to praise the reality stars for speaking their minds.

"The #Gogglebox gang reactions to the Allegra Stratton video have not disappointed" wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another added: "#Gogglebox is more effective than the Labour party. Especially about parties."

It comes amid fury among Tory MPs over an event held in No 10 on December 18 last year which saw the PM’s spokeswoman Allegra Stratton resign after a leaked video showed her laughing about the event.

Boris' top aide Allegra Stratton resigned in tears just hours after bombshell footage showed her laughing about a lockdown-busting Christmas party at No10.

The PM earlier said he was "sickened" by the leaked video of his senior advisers joking about the alleged illegal gathering last year.

In the Commons, Mr Johnson said the video leaked to ITV made him "furious" and launched an investigation into the December 18 party.
