Gogglebox viewers have declared David Mitchell and his wife Victoria Coren Mitchell are the new Giles and Mary.

The pair appeared in Celebrity Gogglebox for charity last night and viewers couldn't resist comparing them to show favourites Giles Wood and Mary Killen.

David and Victoria, who married in 2012, had viewers in stitches as they tried to wrap their heads around dating show Five Guys a Week.

The show sees a single lady invite five men for a date, one after the other during an intensive week of dating.

As one suitor pulled out a box of chocolates, David remarked: "Oh he has brought out the Ferrero Rosher! He's going in for an early lead!"

"This isn't sexy to be looking around a haunted house!" Victoria said of the bizarre date location.

"They might fall into each other's arms in fear... The most sexual of all the emotions!" joked David.

The pair on the date then attempted a Ouija board, while David pointed at the screen and declared: "It's him, he is just rocking the table!"

Later, the woman was flirting with a younger suitor while the original man eavesdropped, devastated.

David remarked: "He is feeling sick as a pig as the top of those stairs, he pretended he could feel the force of some ghost to impress this woman, and now, straightforward schmoozing from a younger man is trumping his supernatural technique!"

Viewers loved their reactions and many compared them to eccentric couple Giles and Mary, with one tweeting: "David Mitchell & Victoria Coren are the celeb Giles & Mary."

Another wrote: "David and Victoria have Giles and Mary energy."

A third tweeted: "Victoria and David are just like Giles and Mary."

While others called for them to be made show regulars, writing: "Loving the show tonight especially Victoria and David Cohen Mitchell. Make them regulars please #Gogglebox ".
