Sexual tension took a nosedive in Friday's (July 8) episode of Celebrity Gogglebox after Gyles Brandreth's attempts to set the mood for Carol Vorderman backfired.

The well-known armchair critics were back for another week of television watching including the new reality dating show The One That Got Away which tries to reunite past sweethearts.

Gyles, TV presenter, author and former MP joined forces with TV personality Carol Vorderman for an hour of running commentary.

As Gyles and Carol sat down to watch the romantic drama unfold, Gyles announced: "The One That Got Away" before suggestively biting into his banana.

As Carol laughed, Gyles explained: "I'm trying to up the erotic energy because there's always a frisson with these shows isn't there?"

However, Carol was not convinced, very clearly stating through laughter: "You're putting me off sex forever, Gyles, by doing that, having a banana."

"Well, you sound like my wife." Gyles lamented.

Despite the exchange, it seems the chemistry between Gyles and Carol was great. As tweeted by Vorderman before the episode aired. "@GylesB1 and I get a little bit carried away so it's a bit squeaky pants time to see what makes the edit, " she wrote.

And it seems like that wasn't their only sexy fruit-related content, as Gyles enlightened Carol on the fascinating history of the word 'avocado' — which he said comes from the Peruvian word for testicle.

Celebrity Gogglebox airs on Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 4.
