VIEWERS of Only Connect have taken to social media to complain that the questions are "too hard" for those playing along at home.

The gameshow, hosted by comedian Victoria Coren Mitchell, welcomed two new teams of big-brained hopefuls on Monday night.

Only Connect saw teams The Golfers and The Jukeboxers try and find the missing links between words or phrases across a series of tense rounds.

But viewers were left fuming that the rounds had been made "too difficult" as the teams struggled to answer some of the cryptic questions.

It was so tricky that one of the questions even left host Victoria, 49, stumped – declaring the music-based answer as "ungettable".

Following the episode on Monday night, fans took to Twitter in their droves to complain that the questions were at "the final" level of difficulty.

"Good grief, Only Connect is hard this week. Have we reached the final already," one woman kickstarted the debate.

A second viewer chimed in: "Why make it that hard? I can ask you any questions you don't know."

"Only Connect is a hard quiz," a third concurred, while a fourth chimed in: "Today's show is mad difficult wtf."

"If Victoria couldn't get them what chance do we have," a fifth viewer alluded to a particular music-related question in the middle of the show.

The teams were initially presented with two mathematical equations, which amounted to 20 acres and 43 acres respectively.

Then a photograph of a combine harvester was given as the third clue – before team The Jukeboxers buzzed in to give the correct answer.

They correctly guessed the fourth photograph would be a key, in reference to The Wurzel's No 1 hit song 'The Combine Harvester'.

The song features the line: "I got 20 acres, and you got 43. Now I got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key."

A shocked Victora then said: "This is my least favourite question in the whole series. I think it’s ungettable. I hate almost everything about it."

She concluded that she thought "nobody could get it" as she slammed the question for "not making any sense".

Only Connect airs Mondays at 8pm on BBC Two.
