Last night on Channel 4 saw a TV first: the leader of a British political party at the centre of a light-entertainment programme as Ukip's Nigel Farage met Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom at their Kent guest house for drinks and discussion.


Steph and Dom concluded that they would not be voting UKIP after all – but what did Twitter make of Farage's foray into Gogglebox territory? Was it outrageous propaganda, or just a bit of fun?

From the beginning, some viewers struggled

After all, wasn’t this just a publicity stunt for UKIP?

Others thought it was all in fun

A few were simply eyeing up Steph and Dom’s luxurious B&B

Gogglebox fans were excited about the view

A couple thought this was the beginning of a beautiful relationship

Some viewers were already planning a sequel

Hopefully Channel 4 will have improved their hashtag by then


But there’s one reaction we'll have to wait for – Steph and Dom’s
