The show's producer, Tania Alexander, recently opened up about how friends Mary and Marina had to sit out the latest series due to living in a retirement village. She explained: "Unfortunately, it was not possible to film with the full cast. For example, we took the decision to tell Mary and Marina, who are in their 90s and live in a care home, that we didn't want them put at any risk, so we should stop filming with them altogether."

She also tweeted about the hilarious pair, who regularly amused viewers with their candid reactions to television, writing: "Oh how much do I love these ladies.
