The episode started off innocently enough with the likes of Coronation Street favourite Maureen Lipman, better known to soap fans as Weatherfield's Evelyn Plummer, finding out that a sapphire ring on the Antiques Roadshow was worth £50,000.

After watching the celebrities being scared witless by a clown, there was a change in pace when they were made to sit and watch 1992 thriller, Basic Instinct.

With many of the celebrities watching with their parents or kids, it certainly made for hilarious viewing... especially Rylan and his mum, Linda, who fans are calling to be given their own show.

But it wasn't just Rylan who found the viewing cringe-worthy.

Zoe Ball was watching with her teenage son, Woody, while This Country star Daisy May Cooper was watching with her dad, Paul.

While this series of Celebrity Gogglebox might have come to an end, next week will see an entire episode devoted to the best moments seen over the last few weeks.

So fear not, there is more Rylan and Linda comedy to come... make sure you tune in on 24th July at 9pm on Channel 4.
