Gogglebox is returning soon for a new series and while viewers can't wait, the stars of the show are clearly excited, too.

Followers of the couple were loving the old photograph and flooded the comments with their amazement at how different they looked. One person said: "Look how young they look! I wonder what Giles had just said - maybe he whistled."

Another commented: "Omg Mary was gorgeous, Giles is punching" as a third said: "Giles you look so young, it’s a great picture of both of you and we can’t wait to see you both, you two are my wife’s favourites and mine of course." Their love story began when they were both just 21 years old and Giles was studying at Wimbledon Art School while Mary worked as a model.

The husband and wife, who live in Wiltshire, have been adored by Gogglebox viewers since they made their first appearance in 2015 after being approached to take part by a friend in the production team. They've stood out as an endearing and eccentric couple who sweetly call each other "nutty".
