Giles And Mary From Gogglebox Look Unrecognisable In Throwback Pics

They've become one of Gogglebox's most unexpectedly beloved couples thanks to their eccentric ways and hilarious bickering, and now fans of Giles and Mary have been given a glimpse at the pair's life before they became a fixture on the show.

In a post on Instagram, Giles shared a series of snaps from he and Mary's days at university, revealing that the couple have been together for almost 40 years.

The photos, which were taken in 1986, show the couple in black and white standing arm in arm, as Mary - a journalist and former model - looks into the camera.

'Throwback shots, Giles and Mary, circa 1986,' Giles wrote in the caption.

The pair - who affectionately refer to each other as 'Nutty,' and are known for their oddball dynamic on the show - first met when they were both aged 21 while Giles was studying at the Wimbledon School of Art.

They've been together ever since, and have been married for more than 30 years, living together in their house in Wiltshire, which the Daily Mail claims is called 'The Grottage.'

Unsurprisingly, the photos have caused a sensation on social media among the pair's followers, as people flock to share their reaction to Giles and Mary's throwback snaps.

'Thought that’s was David Bowie for a moment,' one person wrote, with another comparing Giles' dashing looks to those of a young Tom Cruise, or even Hugh Grant.

'Beautiful pictures ….. pure love in Mary’s eyes as she looks at Giles,' someone commented, as another fan wrote 'Such a gorgeous couple, both of you are good looking people.'

'You [guys] look great, great photos! Ps Gogglebox wouldn't be the same without you both,' was the verdict from another follower.

First appearing on the show in 2015, Gogglebox viewers know relatively little about Giles and Mary's lives outside the show.

But as Mary revealed during one episode, the pair have lived somewhat unconventional lives, with Giles having retired in his early 20s as an artist, and now spending his time painting and running his own art blog.

Mary, meanwhile, is a published author and writes regularly for The Spectator as the magazine's resident art and agony expert.
