Gogglebox refuse to show cast controversial Michael Jackson Leaving Neverland documentary on tonight’s show

GOGGLEBOX bosses have refused to show the cast the controversial Michael Jackson Leaving Neverland documentary on tonight’s show, The Sun Online can exclusively reveal.

The two-part series aired on the broadcaster last week and documents child sex abuse allegations made by the late singer's two alleged victims, Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

Although the programme was produced by Channel 4, a spokesman for the broadcaster confirmed to us that it will not be discussed on the post-watershed show tonight.

The harrowing programme, which features the distressing testimonies of Wade and fellow accuser James, has made waves since it aired last week in the UK, having aired initially in the US.

Wade claims he was just seven when he was first abused by Jackson, and says the singer kept an eerie full-sized replica of Peter Pan next to his bed and he was forced to bend over while being masturbated on from behind.

Both men swore under oath in 1993 they had never been abused by Michael, but Wade later claimed he had lied in court because the Thriller singer had threatened him and "brainwashed" him into believing the relationship was normal.

TV watchdog Ofcom has received 31 complaints about the documentary's first part, which split Michael's die-hard fans.

Although Gogglebox are refraining from showing it to their cast in the UK, the Australian instalment of the show featured the jaw-dropping documentary.

Airing Down Under last night, the stars of Gogglebox Australia slammed the parents of Michael Jackson's alleged abuse victims.

Gogglebox star Matt Dalton said that he accepted the Thriller hitmaker was a paedophile as well as a "superstar musician".

While other cast members directed their anger towards the parents of Jackson's abusers and were left visibly upset by the allegations.

Earlier this week, Peter Andre, who is a huge Jackson fan and friend of the family, said he refused to watch documentary because he's afraid it will "break his heart".

Meanwhile, radio stations around the world have been pulling the star's songs from the airwaves amid claims he groomed the young boys.
