Happy Mondays singer Shaun Ryder and his bandmate Bez have emerged as fan favourites on this year's series of Celebrity Gogglebox, and in tonight's instalment (June 19) they were providing the laughs once again.

Last week, Shaun delighted fans by revealing he was about to adopt some "battery-operated chickens", as opposed to the far more conventional battery hens.

This time around, however, Shaun kept viewers entertained with a rather cheeky confession.

As the assortment of the celebrities were shown coverage of the government proposing a reduction to the social distancing rules, it triggered a discussion between Shaun and Bez on units of measurement.

After learning that the two-metre social distancing rule could be reduced to a metre, Bez said: "But what's a metre at arm's length?"

Shaun replied: "I don't know, I'm still in f***ing feet, me." He then confessed: "I know how many grams there are in an ounce..."

"You should keep that knowledge to yourself, mate," responded Bez before the pair of them broke into laughter.

Also in the episode, Bez declared that he was actually "kind of" gutted that lockdown restrictions were coming to an end because he's "had such a great lockdown, me".

"I've had a good lockdown," Shaun said in agreement. "And I also like seeing nobody out there on the street."

We hope you all had a great lockdown, too.
