My Mum, Your Dad viewers were left cringing at Monday night's episode as the contestants took part in an intimacy challenge.
On the latest instalment of Davina McCall's new reality dating series for single parents in their 40s and 50s, the singletons continued to get to know each other under the hidden instruction of their own offspring,
The couples forming connections paid a visit to a therapist where they attempted to open their physical boundaries to one another.
Roger and Janey were seen breaking their boundaries as he was blindfolded while she tickled him with a feather.Moments later they were seen sharing and sucking on an ice cube together.
In the same challenge, Paul was seen licking a chocolate finger and rubbing it on Natalie's neck, before licking it off.
The offspring naturally hid behind their pillows and squealed with embarrassment as fans at home shared their pain.
One person wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: “Loool I feel like I’m watching my own parents and it’s making me cringe but laugh at the same time.
On person said: “This touchy-feely stuff is making me cringe so much. How those kids must feel.”
"The thought of watching my parents do this.. I’d just die there and then," admitted one viewer.
Another person confessed their repulsion, saying: "OK, so I think a little bit of sick just came up."
"Dying of embarrassment watching #MyMumYourDad," penned another.
One person said: "I feel weird watching this, I can’t deal," while another sympathised with the singletons' kids, saying: "Oh this is cringe. Poor kids!"
Elsewhere in the episode, viewers begged Monique not to ditch Martin in favour of Martin M, who is a self-proclaimed flirt and cheeky chappy.
As Monique shared her emotions with Martin M, she explained that despite initially having a connection with newcomer Martin, she couldn't pretend she wasn't more drawn to the tall blonde.
Heartbroken for her dad, Martin's daughter Jess couldn't hide her upset over the twist and she ended up bursting into tears.
As the other kids tried to console her, Jess explained that she just knew how much pain and heartbroken her dad had been through in the past and it was incredibly hard to watch Monique pass him by.
As Jess continued to struggle with Monique's decision, Martin shared his fears with some of the other hopefuls in garden of the Retreat, as he wondered how his journey was going to continue.
Eventually, Monique took Martin for a chat as she explained that she had more chemistry with Martin M following his entrance.
In true gentleman fashion, Martin said she didn't need to feel guilty or worried, and they already had the makings of a good friendship.
But viewers weren't happy, as one person tweeted: "Martin H and his daughter are making me so sad omg bless them #mymumyourdad."
"Awww poor Martin H hope Monique sees sense!! #mymumyourdad" another wrote.
Later on, the plot thickened as despite Monique deciding to pursue Martin M, he then took Tollulah for a chat and the pair shared a steamy kiss out in the garden.
"He needs to figure it out. Indecisiveness is not a good look," Monique's daughter Taiya shared, seemingly frustrated.
Time will tell if Martin M will continue to get to know a number of women in the Retreat or if he'll finally settle and decide who he wants.
