Viewers were glued to their tellies on Wednesday night as they tuned in for Celebrity Gogglebox Ireland.
It was a jam-packed roster of households who took part in the show.
Una Healy, Kerry Katona, Richard Chambers, Zara King, Gavan Reilly. Twink, Panti Bliss, Tommy Tiernan, Hector Ó hEochagáin,
Tommy Bowe, Brian Dowling, Arthur Gourounlian, and Shane Daniel Byrne were amongst those on the show.
The households watched some of the most iconic moments over the last 25 years of Virgin Media formerly known as TV3 to mark the milestone anniversary.
Hector was left red-faced as he witnessed the first-ever broadcast on the station.
“This is the first-ever f***ing TV3 broadcast… I’m f***ing traumatised,” he told his podcast co-hosts Tommy Tiernan and Laurita Blewitt.
Jason Byrne watched the same clip with his son Daniel, saying: “The acting rotten, it’s rotten… Hector must be 19 in that.”
And viewers were delighted with the show all the same, sharing their praise on Twitter.

I enjoyed that version of Gogglebox. Twink forgetting she ever presented that dating show was gas. The Flemings need to be on every week. 🤣
