Who are Giles Wood and Mary Killen and what do they do for a living?

Mary and Giles are a married couple living in Wiltshire. They met at the age of 21, when Giles was studying at Wimbledon Art School and Mary was working as a model.

Before their Gogglebox debut, Giles dedicated his life to art and is an acclaimed artist, while Mary is a journalist whose columns feature in a number of different publications.

Mary is credited as being an etiquette expert and in 2012 she published a book called How The Queen Can Make You Happy.

When did Mary and Giles join Gogglebox?

The couple joined Gogglebox in 2015 for the fifth series and have been an integral part of the much-loved Channel 4 show ever since.

Fans have fallen in love with their quirky views, eccentric style choices and their adorable nicknames for each other. They can regularly be heard on-screen referring to each other as ‘Nutty’ during Gogglebox episodes.

Mary has spoken out about finding fame on Gogglebox; in a column for The Spectator she explained: “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.”

How much do the Gogglebox families get paid?

A Gogglebox insider told The Sun Online that each of the families taking part are handed a monthly family allowance of £1,500.

The amount is then split amongst contributing family members at their own discretion.

The monthly wage comes with its own added perks and each of the families receives free takeaways to keep them going through each sitting.

What time is Gogglebox on Channel 4?

Gogglebox returns to Channel 4 TONIGHT, Friday, September 22 at 9pm.

Airing once a week, each of the episodes lasts an hour – and fans can expect at least 15 episodes at that’s how many there were in series nine.
