Last night marked the end of the long-awaited third series of Miranda – and SUCH FUN it was. Miranda finally bagged Gary (Tom Ellis), the man of her dreams, a move that was met with a steady influx of delighted tweets. @Alison_MirandaH released her jubilant stream of consciousness on the Twittersphere…
I don't think I will stop thinking about Miranda and gary and aw gary and miranda but aw miranda and gary and awww too cute miranda aw gary
That is a nice set of photos she’s got there, though.
But when Miranda’s ex-boyfriend Mike (played by Bo Poraj) jetted in from Africa to get down on one knee the army of Gary and Miranda will-they-won’t-they purists reacted with indignation. @Jamas_harris summed up the thoughts of the Twittersphere in this concise outburst.
WHEN MIRANDA AND GARY KISSED IT WAS PERFECT BUT MIKE CAME AND HE RUINED EVERYTHING#miranda
But to his credit, Gary finally “manned up” and matched Mike’s proposal with one of his own – prompting Miranda’s mother Penny (played by Patricia Hodge) to howl “JUST SAY YES”. But to who? That was the cliffhanger Ms Hart chose to leave viewers contemplating as the credits rolled and series three came to a close. But over on the Twittersphere, the debate was just getting started as fans shared their views on who their hapless heroine should choose. The contest was, admittedly, rather one-sided…
OMG!! The best Miranda EVER!! Who is @mermhart gonna choose?? CHOOSE GARY!! @tomellis17 HE IS PERFECT!! Go on Miranda!! 😀 <3
But despite being implored to marry Gary over Mike, poor Ms Hart was also subjected to a mass of tweets begging her not to end the character’s journey on that cliffhanger. After waiting over two years for series three to come to fruition, fans were clearly worried that last night’s conundrum would never be resolved. @Wang46xd tweeted Miranda’s parody account to say:
@_Miranda_Hart_ Please do something new for everyone's sake, lots of people love the show and want to know who u chose Gary or Mike
