Gogglebox’s Mary Killen shares ‘late-night show’ plans during series finale

Gogglebox favourite Mary Killen has teased a major career change as the current series of the Channel 4 show came to an end on Friday night.

The TV star joined the cast for the fifth series back in 2015 alongside husband Giles Wood.

Friday marked the final episode of the current series and Mary told Giles that she'd love her own show.

Speaking to Giles, Mary explained: "What I'd like to be doing at 76 is having a late-night talk show, not talk show, sort of phone-in with people ringing in who can't sleep.

"Insomniacs ringing me. That's what I'd like to be doing."

Giles replied: "I know what it'd be called Mary."

"What?" She asked.

He responded: "Awake but not woke."

Mary laughed at her other half's response before going on to offer her verdict on some of the latest shows on television from Tom Allen's Quizness to Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again!

Elsewhere in the programme, the married couple got into spat over avocados.

Giles couldn't resist sharing how he liked to indulge while eating the healthy green fruit.

"I take some Malden sea salt, sprinkle it all over and then scoop it out," before finishing with all mighty slurping sound.

The sound left Mary shuddering and she squirmed in her seat before hitting back: "Don't spoil my life."

When Giles and Mary met at the age of 21, Mary was a model and Giles was studying at Wimbledon Art School.

Now Giles spends his time creating art and contributing to online magazine The Oldie.

Mary an agony aunt for online magazine The Spectator and wrote an etiquette book called How the Queen Can Make You Happy which was published in 2012.

Their age has not been revealed on the show, but they met when they were 21 and have been married for more than 30 years.

Gogglebox’s favourite couple Giles and Mary have two grown-up daughters together. They do not live with their parents.

One of their children was meant to appear on the show alongside Giles, but they decided to stay out of the limelight.

Mary and Giles' Gogglebox co-star Julie Maoline let slip with the show will be back later this year in a social media video.

The Malones took to Instagram to say they were sad this series was coming to a close – and also to say that they'd see us in September.

"Well that's it for this series," mum Julie said. "Have a good summer, and we'll see you all in September."
