Jeremy Vine, who has his own daytime show on Channel 5, was joined on the sofa by MTV presenter Snoochie Shy for Celebrity Gogglebox in July. But the BBC Radio 2 presenter left audience members grimacing with his colourful language during the programme.

The 56-year-old has since addressed his sweary reaction which had left viewers gobsmacked.

Jeremy admitted that he was “shocked” by what he had witnessed on television and hence his foul-mouthed rant.

At the time, he and Snoochie Shy were watching a clip from the MTV show Catfish.

The latter reacted to someone wanting to move in with a partner they had only spoken to online.

She said: “How do we talk about moving in with someone without having met them?”

Jeremy swiftly reacted and dropped the F-word which stunned viewers.

“I’m glad you’re saying that because I’m an old person and I can’t say what I’m thinking which is what the actual f*** is going on,” he exclaimed.

His reaction caused a stir on social media despite his profanity being censored.

He explained: “I saw it but I think they bleeped it. But I’m not sure. It was a shocking moment.

“It was just one of those moments you blurt something out. If they left it in [the show] it was probably OK. That’s just how it goes.”

Following his sweary outburst, social media users flocked to Twitter to react to his comment.

At the time, Dan Evans tweeted: “I just heard @theJeremyVine say the F word and now I don’t know what to think! #celebritygogglebox.”

“OMG @jeremyvine just said – what the actual f***! I’m traumatized,” Marie McGuckin stated.

Aaron Richardson added: “Nearly spat my drink out at Jeremy Vine’s reaction!”

Addressing his time on the Channel 4 show, Jeremy said: “I’m friends with Snoochie Shy and I got to spend time with her which is great.

“You just get into the programme and all of these reactions are all totally genuine. It’s an amazing format.”

He added: “I used to do Points of View for the BBC – their own version – but somehow Celebrity Gogglebox is not about the programmes, it’s about the Gogglebox viewers. It’s just an incredible format.”

Gogglebox airs tonight on Channel 4 at 9pm.
