Gogglebox power couple Giles and Mary have shocked fans with an extremely 90s throwback snap ahead of the new series. It’s extremely adorable.

The pair shared the snap on Instagram, that showed them looking loved up and a lot younger. They captioned the snap, that saw them holding hands, "Nearly time for the return of #Gogglebox", but did not reveal what year it was taken.

Fans of the couple – who joined the show in 2015 and have become firm favourites over the years – quickly flocked to the comments to gush about how amazing they both look.

One fan wrote, “Awwww, 😍 such cool kids! 😎, while another said, “More throwback pictures please 😍.”

Another added, “Omg Mary was gorgeous 😍 Giles is punching 😂.”

Giles and Mary (who affectionally call each other ‘Nutty’) have become known for their hilarious TV commentary and playful disagreement on the Channel 4 show - oh and the distinctive wallpaper matching Mary’s chair.

They met when they were just 21 years old while Giles was studying at art school in Wimbledon and Mary was working as a model and have been married for more than 30 years. Giles is a well-regarded artist and contributor to The Oldie and Mary's now a journalist and often writes for The Spectator.

The cottage in Wiltshire where they live have become almost as iconic as the couple themselves – who are labelled by viewers as one of the ‘poshest families’ to ever appear on the show.

In an interview with The Guardian, Mary explained that she had to ban swearing in the house, "There's so much on telly, I don't want it in my own cottage.

"Giles swears occasionally because he's always having minor accidents. Our children turn on him and tell him off. Poor Giles."

Gogglebox prepares to launch its 18th regular series in just under two weeks and will be back on screens on Friday September 17 at 9pm on Channel 4.
