Gogglebox’s Mary and Giles look worlds away from the show sofa on a day in London
GOOGLEBOX’s Mary and Giles looked unrecognizable from the show during a day out in London.
The Channel 4 stars had a great time in England’s bustling city.
The pair are best known for their humorous one-liners and light-hearted sparring while watching the week’s biggest TV moments in their living room.
On Wednesday, however, Mary and Giles looked a world away from their well-known ‘Grottage’ in Wiltshire as they headed to a gig at Heart Radio in Leicester Square.
The duo appeared on The Heart’s Breakfast Show and flaunted their flashy clothes.
Mary donned one of her well-known eccentric ensembles, which included a red tartan skirt and matching beret.
Giles followed his wife while they carried their bags as they exited the studio.
He wore a gray V-neck wool sweater with a pink and white striped shirt underneath.
Giles completed the look with a blue jacket and black glasses.
Their home is the Grottage, the couple’s Wiltshire estate, where they have lived together for more than 30 years.
Giles was an artist before finding fame on Gogglebox, while Mary is a journalist, contributing to publications such as The Spectator.
This comes after the Gogglebox legends made a big move after eight years on the popular Channel 4 reality show.
In her book Country Life: A Story of Peaks and Troughs, out this month, Giles writes: ‘If I were a shrub I’d say I’d only tentatively put down roots here in Wiltshire.
“You’re not fat enough or stubborn enough to stop me from uprooting myself for the final chapter of my life. After 30 years I am now ready to transplant again.”
Mary continues: “As a woman who cannot drive, I have been relegated to a village with no bus service for the past three decades. That means I’ve missed at least 600 London parties over the years, gallery openings and book launches, not to mention commemorations and lectures and art exhibitions.”
Rather than spend her later years away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Mary suggests adopting a faster pace.
She says: “I am sure that a flat in London would be the best choice for the last decade of life. It’s too tiresome to visit someone who lives in the country, no matter how much you love them. Our friends and family are always in London and would be 20 times more likely to visit us there.”
