Gogglebox's Giles and Mary ripping into show is one of 'most brutal criticisms ever’
| Last updated
They might be softly spoken and wear a lot of tweed, but don’t let Giles and Mary fool you, because the Gogglebox favourites certainly know how to deliver a burn.
Wearing a deadpan expression at all times, Giles tore the show a new one while Mary nodded in agreement, and the clip will make you want to mail the couple adoption papers pronto. See for yourself below:
Giles said of the show: “You know what I would hate more than anything, I’d hate to be in a nursing home and have this on in the background and die to this.
“That would be the worst thing ever wouldn’t it. Imagine if your last memory of this world was that prawn dancing.”
Needless to say, Giles’ comments left people in stitches, with one person writing below the clip: “I cracked up. So spot on.”
Another added: “This made me laugh so much. Spot on,” while a third said: “Too funny.”
Others pointed out how much they love Giles and Mary, leaving comments including: “Love these two and I think Giles has been my favourite on the show for many years” and “Giles & Mary should have their own show. More entertaining than most of the drivel we can watch on terrestrial tv nowadays.”
At one point while watching the show, Giles even told Mary: “I imagine you would enjoy this more Mary if you had just taken some crystal meth."
The couple met when they were just 21 and before joining the Gogglebox cast, Giles worked as an artist while Mary earned a living as a journalist, writing for papers including The Spectator.
She even touched upon her newfound fame in the outlet in 2016, saying: “The public's reaction is entirely benign. People approach me, their faces wreathed in smiles. 'You're Mary from Gogglebox, aren't you? I just want to say - your husband makes us laugh."
Mary also revealed that Gogglebox has helped their marriage.
She added: "Giles and I were like ships that pass in the night. I got up early, he went to bed late and we rarely even ate together.
"Sitting down and watching television reminded us how much we enjoyed the same jokes."
