Gogglebox fans overjoyed when they bagged the award for Best Factual TV Show at the National Television Awards on Thursday – but many felt the victory should have gone to the Channel 4 documentary Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death.

The posthumous Caroline documentary was made with the help of the late Love Island star's family and gave an unflinching view on her time in the spotlight.

After Gogglebox scooped the prize over the powerful film, one person posted on Twitter: "Why would you vote gogglebox over Caroline Flack."

"I love #Gogglebox & watch it every week & usually I’m happy when it wins the Factual award at the #NTAs but I think the Caroline Flack documentary should have won this year," another shared.

"That was such an important documentary and really showed the impact press intrusion can have on mental health."

One questioned: "Me wondering why a programme about Caroline Flack is in a category with Goggle Box – hardly the same type of programme ….. #NTAs."

A Twitter user said: "Why is Gogglebox nominated in factual and not entertainment, and why was the Caroline Flack doc not nominated with the documentaries?

"This show is a mess!!! #NTAs."

Anonther added: "I'm gutted the Caroline Flack documentary lost out to Gogglebox #NTAs."

A fifth remarked online: "Not sure why the Caroline Flack documentary was lumped in with Gogglebox.

"She deserved better. @NataliePinkham and her friends family- sending love #NTAs."

A few viewers claimed This Morning's Phillip Schofield gave a "disapproving look" after a handful of stars from Gogglebox gave their speech too.
