Two masks kissing… kinda (Picture: Channel 4/Netflix)
The stars of Celebrity Gogglebox were all left in disbelief when they witnessed a couple kiss with their masks on in scenes from Sexy Beasts.
The new Netflix dating show has got everyone talking at the moment, as it features hopeful singletons all transformed using make-up and prosthetics for their dates with potential partners, as they are encouraged to look beyond appearance.
Naturally, in tonight’s edition of the Channel 4 series, the celebrities all sat down on their sofas to watch the dating madness unfold in all its glory.
One particular scene of Sexy Beasts saw a couple, called Bennett and Emma, dressed up in mandrill and demon costumes respectively, who were off to a great start after their first meeting.
It seemed the Gogglebox cast were already a bit bewildered as they watched Bennett and Emma’s date play out, which involved the two visiting Thorpe Park and riding on a rollercoaster together.
Not before long, things got intimate between them, as they hugged and leaned in for a kiss, all while wearing their masks.
We can’t believe it either.

And as you can imagine, the celebs were pretty shocked, while some were confused as to how they were able to kiss properly.
‘What! They’re kissing!’ Denise Van Outen’s partner Eddie Boxshall exclaimed.
‘Demon and mandrill are lipsing, I just don’t get this,’ Snoochie Shy uttered in shock.

Gyles Brandreth took the moment to make a cheeky joke, saying: ‘This is a bit kinky.’
Zoe Ball was left wondering if it was even possible to kiss someone with a mask on, asking: ‘How are their tongues even, how is that even working?’

But Nick Grimshaw and his niece, Liv Grimshaw, perhaps had the best reactions of all.
‘Ew, no!’ Liv screamed out in horror as Nick chimed in: ‘Eww, no that is weird, I’m sorry. I don’t wanna be a prude, but that is weird.

‘You don’t snog a mandrill at Thorpe Park.’
We might just have to agree with you on that one Nick.
Tonight’s episode also saw the stars watch the Discovery+ series Naked and Afraid, and 2019 horror movie Crawl.
Celebrity Gogglebox continues next Friday at 9pm on Channel 4.
