Tributes have poured in for Gogglebox legend Mary Cook who has died aged 92.

Mary appeared on the Channel 4 show alongside close friend Marina, who she met at a retirement village in Bedminster ten years ago, before joining the show in 2016 at the end of series eight.

Mary and Marina quickly became instant fan favourites due to their brilliantly witty and often cheeky comments.

According to their website, Mary said: “I was going shopping, so I asked them if they could wait until we got back.

“They came up to Marina’s flat, held cards up of different famous people and we had to talk about them.”
