Gogglebox Ireland returns tonight to TV screens and, once again, the families have plenty to say about the outfit choices of some of the nation's favourite celebrities.

Not an episode has gone by where the amateur armchair reviewers of Gogglebox Ireland haven't passed a remark on a celebrity's appearance. In the first episode Sharon Ni Bheolain “looks well”, was a recurring theme. Miriam O’Callaghan looked well too.

In tonight’s episode the show opens on Winning Steak and much-loved host Sinead Kennedy sparks controversy in the households with her choice of clothing, wearing a two-piece tartan suit.

The Gruffertys from Kildare are having none of her daring outfit choice, with mum Laura saying: “It’s a little bit OTT for Winning Streak, she must be going to Coppers”.

Sinead, who'd been watching the show and heard the comments, couldn't resist sending a tweet to set the record straight: "Just so y'all know I didn't actually end up in Copper's last Saturday night."

The families found it hard to stomach a BBC documentary on parenting style, Britain's Secrets with Anne Robinson. The documentary featured a 42-year-old mother who still breastfeeds her three-year-old son.

The Cabra girls, minus Ashley, who is away in Rome on holidays, were disgusted and almost gagged on their tea.

A horrified Jamie commented: “Oh my god, Stop it. He’s too big for that. He’s only short of collecting the labour”.

But it took an emotional turn when the families watched BBC documentary, True North: My Wig & Me, on the impact of hair loss on cancer patients.

There wasn't a dry eye in the houses as the documentary showed a brave young girl called Emily who has leukaemia. “That’s after tearing lumps out of me”, said Tracie, from the Liberties in Dublin, with tears running down her face.
