    Channel 4's Gogglebox has received 88 Ofcom complaints after show star Joe Kyle sang a rude song about King Charles III's Coronation.

    Angry viewers complained to the media watchdog after last Friday's episode (May 12) which saw Joe sing a chant which included the lyrics: "You can stick your Coronation up your a***."

    During the episode, Gogglebox stars watched the historic Coronation of King Charles III, which took place on May 6th at London's Westminster Abbey.

    Some of the cast were clearly feeling patriotic as they waved Union Jack flags for the occasion, and fan-favourites Stephen and Daniel wore special slippers during the episode.

    But Scottish couple Joe and Roisin Kelly seemed to rub viewers the wrong way as Joe mocked the royal event in front of his girlfriend.

    Sitting on the sofa, Joe turned to Roisin and asked: "Do you want to hear my pledge?"

    He then proceeded to chant: "You can stick your Coronation up your a***, you can stick your Coronation up your a***."

    But fans on Twitter weren't happy with the chant as they rushed to complain during the episode.

    One fan wrote: "I loved every minute of it. Shame on the Glaswegian couple. Let us Glaswegians down with that vile remark."

    Another said: "Complaint put in about the Scottish couple."

    A third wrote: "Watching Gogglebox and nearly broke the TV when Roisin and Joe came on!! Get them off!!"

    But others seemed to agree with Joe and Rosin as one tweeted: "Cackling at the Scottish couple watching the coronation on Gogglebox #Gogglebox."

    Ofcom has since confirmed to Daily Star that the "majority" of complaints "related to Joe Kyle's comments about the Coronation."
