GOGGLEBOX fans have slammed an “odious” new signing for the celebrity series.
The former journalist-turned-strategist made the big Celebrity Gogglebox reveal with snap showing him of the sofa with daughter Grace.
Grace, 29, has carved a career in her own right as a comedienne and author.
Alastair took to his Twitter page to reveal: “If I was in two minds about doing @bbcquestiontime Brexit special last night I was in about two hundred minds about doing this one.
“But @GraceCampbell said it would be good for her ‘brand.’
“Must be amazing to have a brand when one so young! #bulliedDad.”
Fans were less than impressed, with one bluntly replying: “I feel nauseous.”
Another put: “You have a brand Alastair, just it’s very tainted,” as a third unkindly continued: “Odious little man.”
One admitted: “I don’t celebrate these two.”
Another then quizzed: “With your schedule do you have time to watch Tele?”
Some also flagged him as a “remoaner” in the Brexit debate while others questioned his links to Tony Blair and the Iraq war.
Yet others appeared excited by the new signing.
One wrote: “I love this! Grace is hilarious.”
A second added: “If you’re doing Gogglebox you’ve finally arrived! All the rest was just prep.”
Alastair previously issued a dizzying defence of ex PM Blair’s role in the Iraq War.
Additionally, the popular show recently revealed two new signings – these being Beverley Knight and Adam Lambert.
Beverley and Adam are judges on ITV’s Starstruck where teams of super fans transform into their idol for a very special performance.
Recently, the show was subject to a huge schedule shake-up after it was postponed for the football.
