Gogglebox cast: Do Giles and Mary have children?

The eccentric pair almost missed out on joining the show

| Updated:

Gogglebox cast favourites Giles and Mary have been brightening up our screens since 2015. Fans often praise their constant joke-cracking.

The couple have been together for over 30 years. This has led fans to question whether the couple have children.

Do Giles and Mary have children?

While a lot of the Gogglebox cast families are made up of parents and their children, Giles and Mary feature on Channel 4 alone.

Although they have not featured on our screens, Giles and Mary do have children. The couple have two daughters.

How old are their children?

Giles and Mary’s daughters are both grown up and no longer live at home.

The couples’ two children famously are not fans of the spotlight, unlike their parents.

Will their children appear on the show?

Originally, one of the stars’ daughters was meant to appear on the show instead of Mary. She would have appeared alongside dad, Giles. However, she ended up opting out.

Mary and Giles’ other daughter has never shown an interest in appearing in the show, and also prefers to stay out of the spotlight.

How did Giles convince Mary to join the show?

After their daughter decided she did not want to appear on the show, Giles was able to convince Mary to appear alongside him instead.

Although initially hesitant to sign up, according to Reality Titbit, after a conversation with Gogglebox producers, Mary changed her mind and agreed to take part.

Mary recently revealed that it was their time on Gogglebox that rekindled their relationship. Saying that, without the show, they would have split.

Gogglebox continues every Friday at 9pm on Channel 4.
