Gogglebox Ireland had viewers doubting their own spelling ability (or lack thereof) on TV3 this evening.
The Goggleboxers were in a mood for TV games, playing along with a spelling bee and a ‘Read my Lips’ competition.
There was more debate about the Sky 1 spelling bee, in particular the correct spelling of marmalade...

The gang also joined in with Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway on TV3, although the Tully twins from Cavan were less impressed with that duo. “Anto and Dec are a bit like you and me Neal, except we are better looking,” said Fergal.
However, it was a ‘Read my Lips’ game, featuring Brendan O’Carroll in character as Mrs Brown, which took most of the attention.

Did anyone else who didn't see the Saturday night takeaway just try and play that game or was I on my own 😂 #GoggleboxIRL— Gemma (@96Gems) March 8, 2017
People also enjoyed the reactions to the now famous drive-thru ashes.
The Ash Wednesday service for commuters in Glenamaddy, Co. Galway, which was covered on the RTÉ News, provoked plenty of comment on the priest’s ‘crossing’ skills.

Welcome to Ireland where we judge a priest on the ash cross they make on a person's forehead. 😂#GoggleboxIRL— Kate ✨ (@R0gerMTayl0r) March 8, 2017
