I don’t want a lot for Christmas, but a sweet interaction between beloved singers Mariah Carey and Jane McDonald is one thing I – and indeed, the whole of Twitter – needed.
Thanks to some comments made on Friday’s episode of Gogglebox, we got it, after a video clip of cast member Pete talking about Ms Carey was posted online.
Reacting to Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues on Apple TV+, he said: “You know what this reminds me of, this? … An American-style Jane McDonald.”
“She is. She’s America’s Jane,” replied sister and co-star Sophie.
Somehow we didn’t think Ms Carey would pay much attention to a show based around us watching other people watching TV, but on Saturday she replied: “I’m America’s Jane?! Thank you gorgeous!”
Not long afterwards, Ms McDonald – who found fame on the BBC documentary The Cruise – responded: “Wow! Well I must be the UK’s Mariah!
“Merry Christmas Mariah.”
