Gogglebox star Mary denies being a former model as photo goes viral on Twitter

But she is is flattered by all the attention over the fashion mix-up...

If you love Gogglebox, you'll know Mary Killen for her dry sense of humour, crazy home furnishings and constant bickering with husband Giles but did she have a secret past as a fashion model? Twitter exploded over the weekend when a vintage modelling photo took Gogglebox fans by surprise - it was a major throwback. A model could be seen in an A-line mini skirt, fitted turtleneck and statement go-go boots. 

See the Twitter photo below... 


Sadly, we've since discovered it's not the lovable Gogglebox star! A Gogglebox representative told HELLO!: "I checked with Mary yesterday (she’s not on Twitter) and although hugely flattered, it’s not her. It's a model called Susan Shaw."

When everyone did think it was Mary, Twitter erupted with comments: "I'm not surprised at all. She has sass that woman!" And another fan replied: "Queen Nutty!" Avid watchers will know that this is a reference to Mary's nickname regularly used by husband Giles on the hit reality series. Questioning whether the TV star's other-half was featured in the photo, one fan asked: "Is that Giles behind her spotting her for the first time?" We don't think so, but you never know!
