Last night, GOGGLEBOX fans spat out their dinners in hysterics when Giles stated that The Masked Singer was more fun to watch after taking drugs.
Giles made the deadpan comment while sitting in a chair at his Wiltshire cottage after seeing Westlife singer Mark Feehily expose on an ITV talent show.
Giles saw Mark dressed as a Robo Bunny, with a mini greenhouse full of carrots slung over each shoulder.
Without taking his eyes off the TV, Giles said to his wife Mary, “I suppose you’d like it better, Mary, if you’d just taken some crystal meth.”
His wife replied, “Just took some?”
His remark was picked up by dozens of viewers who repeated it on Twitter.
Giles and Mary are very loved by the audience.
They met when they were only 21, when Giles was studying at the Wimbledon School of Art and Mary was modeling.
Prior to their Gogglebox debut, Giles has dedicated his life to art and is a well-known artist, while Mary is a journalist whose columns appear in a number of different publications, including The Spectator.
Mary is considered an etiquette expert and in 2012 she published a book called How a Queen Can Make You Happy.
They are the parents of two adult daughters who prefer to stay out of the spotlight.
They are regularly heard on screen calling each other “Nuts” during episodes of Gogglebox.
“We call each other ‘crazy’ because we both think each other is a little crazy,” Mary said.
“Of course, Giles has a split personality, so he could be anyone, and one of them is a bit of a genius. The truth is, we’re a bit neurotic.”
The pair joined Gogglebox in 2015 for series five and have been a fixture on the much-loved Channel 4 show ever since.
Fans fell in love with their quirky looks, eccentric style choices and their adorable nicknames for each other.
Mary talked about becoming famous on Gogglebox; in column for the viewer she explained, “The response from the public has been completely positive. People come up to me with smiles on their faces. “You are Mary from Gogglebox, right? I just want to say – your husband makes us laugh.”
She also revealed that the show saved the couple’s marriage.
She said they were like “ships that pass through the night” as the marriage teetered on the brink of collapse before appearing on Gogglebox.
“Giles and I were like ships passing by at night. I got up early, he went to bed late, and we rarely even ate together,” Mary said.
“When we sat and watched TV, it reminded us how much we loved the same jokes.”
Mary also revealed that lockdown was a no-brainer for them, although many couples have suffered during this difficult time.
She said: “The lockdown was not a big test for us; more like an open prison with comfy beds, but I know several couples who broke up because they decided they couldn’t stand each other.”
