Gogglebox’s Mary says ‘Giles and I fight like old cats’ after 3 decades together

Gogglebox’s resident couple Mary Killen and Giles Wood have become popular amongst viewers of the hit Channel 4 show thanks to their dry sense of humour. But Mary has admitted that her husband doesn’t make her laugh like he used to.

The pair, who have appeared on screens since 2015, have been married for over 30 years and have two adult daughters together.

Discussing their relationship, Mary exclusively told OK! : “We used to share a sense of humour. When I first met him, he was so funny. I was crying with laughter all day even when he wasn’t there.

“A taxi driver said to me the other day, ‘Your husband makes us laugh,’ I said, ‘He used to make me laugh too!’”

She added: “He is still quite funny but when you get to a certain age…

“We do have a good relationship, but a lot of it is like we’re like two old cats going at each other.”

Speaking to us at the TRIC Christmas lunch, Mary added that she “loves” filming Gogglebox in their quirky Wiltshire cottage

“I love it because I’m just sitting in my own home – it’s a job,” she said. “We get paid a minor sum. It means I don’t have to pack my bag, lose my keys. I just go downstairs and turn on the telly!”

She also admitted that it’s easy to forget that they’re being filmed.

“Yes they’re filming for 12 hours a week so of course we forget. The cameras are so small. The point is they want the cast to be as natural as possible. That’s why they film for so long,” she said.

Mary previously revealed how Gogglebox saved their marriage.

Speaking to Daily Star, she said: "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."

She added at the time: "I know a few couples who have split up because they have decided they can’t stand one another.

"Sitting down and watching television reminded us how much we enjoyed the same jokes."

The couple have also addressed the reason why they both have the pet name “nutty”.

“We call each other ‘nutty’ because we both consider the other to be a bit mad,” Mary said. “Certainly, Gils has multiple personality disorder so he’s all sorts of people and one of them is a bit of a genius. The truth is we’re both neurotic.”
