Johnny Vegas ‘miffed’ over Gogglebox Liverpool mistake

Johnny Vegas said he was "miffed" when Celebrity Googlebox said he was in Liverpool instead of his hometown St Helens.

Over the last three weeks, the comedian has appeared on the popular show with PA Bev Dixon, but he was less than impressed when during the first episode producers said the pair were in Liverpool.

Johnny, who has been very vocal about how proud he is to be from St Helens, said he got on the phone straight away to sort it out, the St Helens star reports.

Johnny said: "It’s good fun but a bit weird to be honest having a film crew in your lounge videoing you at a distance watching the tele, but then again it’s no stranger than being back in work and Bev is in her element, everyone has been lovely to her and she loves this kind of TV anyway so she’s loving it.

“Tell you what though I was miffed when that first episode said we were in Liverpool, who doesn’t know I’m from St Helens? I’m proud to be from here and we got on to them straight away.

“They explained they generalise it for safety, but I said, ‘Listen people know my local, don’t be worried about saying I’m from St Helens everyone knows I’m from there I’ve never hidden it’.

“So the next week they changed it which was good, got to keep the civic pride haven’t we?”
