Gogglebox viewers in stitches over Stephen Graham getting 'don't cry over spilt milk' saying wrong

Gogglebox viewers in stitches over Stephen Graham getting 'don't cry over spilt milk' saying wrong

Stephen Graham and his family were on Celebrity Gogglebox for Stand Up to Cancer last night

Stephen Graham has been roasted after his performance on the celebrity version of Gogglebox last night, after the star got a common phrase all mixed up.

Graham is well-known for his performances on the screen, but usually he’s playing a character in one gripping drama or other.

On this occasion, he’s found himself as the butt of the joke when playing himself, but at least it’s all for a good cause.

On last night’s episode of Celebrity Gogglebox in aid of Stand Up to Cancer, the Peaky Blinders and Time star managed to trip over his words, whilst watching an episode of The Great British Bake Off.

Sitting on his couch with wife – and fellow actor – Hannah Walters and their children, Graham managed to get a popular phrase all muddled up in his head.

He thought that ‘don’t cry over spilled milk’ was actually ‘don’t cry into your cake mix’.

To be fair to him, you’d believe that was a popular saying if he delivered it on a drama show, wouldn’t you?

After watching Bake Off contestant Cristy attempting to get her cake to set during Botanical Week on the show, Graham asked: "Isn't it a famous saying, 'Don't cry into your cake mix' or something?"

His wife was quick to set him straight on the issue.

She said: "No, I think that's 'Don't cry over spilt milk', you idiot," his wife Hannah replied. "Don't cry over your cake mix? That's not a saying, Stephen."

“Well, it is now,” Graham hit back, much to the delight of his kids.

Elsewhere in the show, there were a number of other famous faces watching telly with their family and friends.

There was EastEnders star Bobby Brazier, and Absolutely Fabulous star Jennifer Saunders, and The Masked Singer star and former Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger.

Bob Mortimer was around too, as were Richard Ayoade, Harry Hill, and Tim Vine.

Most of them managed not to mix up any popular phrases though.

Well, at least not accidentally.

Ultimately, the show was a charity event about cancer, and that message came through in harrowing measure when the celebs were told the story of one family.

The story was particularly touching, as one young cancer sufferer picked his own gravestone and planned his own funeral.

One comment read: "Imagine being that young and picking your gravestone. That's done me."

Another said: "Oh Harry. How brave to plan his funeral.

“Life is so unfair.

“I’m in absolute bits."

There’s another episode at 9:30 tonight, and you can donate to Stand Up to Cancer here.
