Celebrity Gogglebox viewers found themselves “traumatised” with many “switching off” the show during a series of terrifying moments on Friday night.
This week, the famous faces were put through 1991 thriller Cape Fear, the movie 127 Hours and one of the most nerve-wracking episodes of David Attenborough’s Planet Earth.
All of the celebrities tuning in, including Roman Kemp, Rylan Clark-Neal and Laura Whitmore , were left uneasy and in shock over the different segments.
The jumpy elements to the Robert De Niro hit Cape Fear was enough, never mind the battle to the death between Planet Earth’s baby iguanas and hunting snakes.
But it was James Franco in 127 Hours that got the biggest and worst reactions from the celebs, with many of them hiding behind their hands.
They weren’t the only ones though, as the viewers at home were in equal distress over the scenes.
Again they found the entire episode too much, fearing for the iguanas while also finding Cape Fear very “stressful”.
Like the celebrities though it was 127 Hours’ lead character getting his arm trapped in a canyon and him proceeding to cut it off that left them a mess.
As the entire scene played out with all the blood and gore, it made for painful and stressful viewing.
Every part of it left viewers struggling to cope and many were unable to watch it, switching over or leaving the room.
As the echoes of the famous faces screaming made the entire thing worse, it was when of them said “cutting through a broken bone is easier” that many fans totally lost it.
Taking to Twitter, viewers shared their own terror at the moment with many confessing they would never put that film on their watch lists.
One viewer commented: “Well that was stressful #CelebrityGogglebox,The horrible b*****d snakes , cape fear and 127 hours in one setting. OMG I’m stressed out.”
Another said: “So traumatised after watching #CelebrityGogglebox tonight. First lizards being killed by snakes then cape fear and to top it off 127 hours. Couldn’t watch any more so it’s off! Goodnight tv hello nightmares.”
Meanwhile a fourth tweeted: “Omg! Who, like me, ran out of the room during 127 hours?”
This was echoed by another fan who said: “I *cannot* watch 127 Hours. I’ve had to turn this off.”
Celebrity Gogglebox airs Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.
