Maureen Lipman done with Gogglebox as shes seen enough male tackle

Coronation Street actress Maureen Lipman has revealed she is done with Celebrity Gogglebox because she's seen enough "male tackle" to last a lifetime.

The TV and theatre star had been appearing on the Channel 4 show with her friend Gyles Brandreth but shared earlier this year that she walked off during filming at one point after being made to watch risqué dating series Naked Attraction.

The 75 year old has now suggested that she is unlikely to be an armchair critic on the Channel 4 show again.

Speaking on Loose Women, she said: "I've seen all the male tackle that I need to see for this lifetime, I really have.

"I've rolled through my period of going (makes shocked face)."

"Gyles loves it, he absolutely loves it," she told the panel.

"And we had such a good time.

"But none of the clever things we said went into it, just (squeals with shocked expression)."

The actress recently said that she had realised Gogglebox bosses were not as interested in what she had to say as they were in her funny reaction to things on screen.

She told the Radio Times that she had walked off when watching popular dating show Naked Attraction, which sees male and female contestants baring all.

"I'd seen Gogglebox and I thought, 'Oh, (ours) is the grown-up version, is it?'" she said.

"I'm going to go on, and make a lot of comment now about the oeuvre and, 'I did like his first trilogy, but then I felt in some ways that perhaps over the years…' But it's your reaction to 12 dangling willies they want.

"They are searching for ways to make me go, 'Urgh!'"

Maureen is currently playing the character Evelyn Plummer on the cobbles.

The screen legend was cast in the ITV soap in 2018.
