Jane McDonald shares hilarious tale of losing her virginity while watching Bridgerton on Gogglebox.

Celebrity Gogglebox was a riot this week, with Jane McDonald stealing the show as she shared a cheeky story while watching the steamy scenes of Bridgerton.

The nation’s favourite TV personality had viewers in fits of laughter as she reminisced about her own risqué past during a particularly memorable episode.

The latest Gogglebox instalment saw the celebrity pairs reacting to one of Bridgerton's most anticipated moments: the intimate mirror scene between Colin (Luke Newton) and Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) in season three.

As the tension heated up on-screen, Jane couldn't help but drop a bombshell of her own.

Turning to her best friend and former backing singer, Sue Ravey, Jane asked: “Do you remember your first time?”

Sue’s response was a classic: “No, it’s been too long since.”

But it was Jane’s own story that left everyone gobsmacked.

“Mine were in the back of a Vauxhall. No hang on, one of them vans and someone were nicking petrol out of it at the time,” she revealed, nonchalantly.

Sue’s shrug said it all: “Oh well, there you go.” Clearly, just another day in the life of Jane McDonald!

Earlier in the episode, Jane had viewers giggling over her comically large wine glass, which holds an entire bottle. Cheers to that, Jane!

Jane’s honesty and humour about her personal life have always endeared her to fans.

Her love life has always been a topic of interest. She first caught the public's eye on BBC's The Cruise in 1998.

After splitting from her teenage sweetheart and drummer Walter “Eddie” Rothe, Jane married Paul in 1986 but divorced just a year later.

In 1998, she wed Henrik Brixen, a plumbing engineer from The Cruise. However, their marriage ended in 2003 when Henrik’s involvement in Jane's career led to industry friction.

Fate had other plans for Jane and Eddie. They reconnected in 2008 after The Searchers, Eddie’s band, appeared on This Morning. Jane was filming Loose Women nearby.

The pair rekindled their romance and enjoyed a loving 13-year relationship, getting engaged before Eddie tragically passed away from lung cancer in April 2021.

When Denise Welch asked her about dating again at the end of last year, Jane’s response was heartfelt: “I was very blessed to have a great relationship, and I feel as though my life doesn’t need a man to complete it.”

She continued: “I’m not saying I’m never going to date again, that would be lovely, but I don’t feel like I need someone in my life to make it complete.”

Jane McDonald continues to charm and entertain, whether it’s on stage, on a cruise ship, or from her comfy spot on Gogglebox.
