Gogglebox brothers Baasit and Umar Siddiqui joked on Facebook that they were in training for ISIS with a picture of them at a paintballing venue.

Although one of their friends didn’t see the funny side of their joke on the social network site and reported it to the police, The Sun reports.

The brothers captioned a picture of them paintballing with a reference to so-called Islamic State.

Derbyshire Police found no terrorism link after investigating the picture but they said they’d be “offering suitable words of advice”.

“No offences have been committed and there will be no further police action,” the police added in a statement.

The channel has said that the photo will not affect their position on the show.

A Gogglebox spokesperson said: “The Siddiquis have not been under investigation by local police, they are aware that this post was misjudged and have apologised for their mistake.”

The family apologised on social media Tuesday morning following the investigation.
