No-one is safe from politics talk in the current climate, and that includes everyone's favourite TV show about people watching TV shows.
Tonight's (April 28) episode of Gogglebox saw our armchair critics discuss Theresa May's calling of a General Election, and the strength of opposition leaders Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron.
While everyone was coming out with a level of political debate you would never see on Question Time, it was Mary (of Giles & Mary fame) who spoke the truth that everyone else was just too afraid to admit...
Vladimir Putin is going to rig the electronic vote in the UK's General Election and ensure Labour's Jeremy Corbyn wins by a landslide.
People on Twitter (the people watching people on the TV watch other people on the TV) called out our Mary, stating that the UK doesn't do electronic votes, and that her claim is, you know, barmy.

"What if Putin rigs the vote?" I'll laugh my socks off until Christmas. I'd love to see the smile wiped off Theresa May's face! #gogglebox- Sara Mason (@piglet2602) April 28, 2017

Harmonica playing, busking, mass hypnotism, it can only be Giles and Mary #gogglebox- Beth (@Bethany_AB) April 28, 2017
Did #Gogglebox just air a hit piece on Corbyn by implying that Putin wants him to win because Russia reasons?- Charles Fairs (@charlesfairs) April 28, 2017
Putin's going to rig the UK election so Corbyn wins, by MASS HYPNOSIS? Mary's gone Full Nutty. #Gogglebox- Julius Pepperwood (@Rachey_James) April 28, 2017
UK must have introduced electronic voting for general elections without me spotting it!! #gogglebox- jules878 (@jules878) April 28, 2017
#gogglebox please ban politics from the show. We see enough of it on the telly! 😡- GD1892 (@xxGeorge1892xx) April 28, 2017
We can all laugh and roll our eyes and say 'oh, Mary!', but stranger things have happened in the last year. We'll refer you to this article in a few months' time, when we are all living under the rule of Putin x Corbyn, and we'll say 'Mary was right'.
Gogglebox airs Friday nights on Channel 4.
