The Gogglebox Ireland crew watching 'Should I Marry My Cousin?' was the highlight of its return last night

“It’s like Blind Date: Cousins Edition”

MICHAEL TEA HIGGINS, The Cabra Girls, The Tully twins.

People have been waiting a *long* time for Gogglebox Ireland to return to our screens, and last night it was back with a bang on TV3.

The whole gang was back together, with all the familiar faces

Michael Tea had a lovely red jumper on

“Remember? You were wearing your red jumper.”

They often throw a few curveballs in, in terms of shows to watch, and last night’s most entertaining diversion of all was when the BBC documentary ‘Should I Marry My Cousin?’ came on. Immediately, there were jokes flying:

“Oh my god, this must be set in Leitrim”

“Is this… FIRST cousins?”

(Yes, it was).

“You don’t put a bull off with its cousin who’s a cow”

The Tully twins haven’t changed this series anyway:

Genetics Professor Tully was on hand throughout:

“You look at them pure bred dogs – they’re all very sickly. You look at a good mongrel and it’ll last for years”

“Should I marry my cousin? No, end programme”

These are the one-liners that keep us coming back for more:

There’s always one show that provides the best lines, and this was it:

“My cousins are great craic – I wouldn’t mind marrying one of them in fairness”

“It would keep wedding numbers down if you married your cousin. The same gang on both sides”

“You can’t really divorce your first cousin. It’s hardly like you can say ‘bye bye, see you never’”

“I’d say her family tree must be like a square. Not much going on, is there?”

By the end, the presenter decided that she wasn’t going to marry one of her first cousins:

“Well done – it just took you a whole documentary to figure that out”
