There was a special treat for Gogglebox fans during the last episode of the series on Friday night – the return of Mary and Marina.
And the Bristolian pensioners were on even saucier form than usual as they saw each other indoors for the first time in weeks.
The pair were seen having an emotional reunion at the start of Friday’s episode, which saw Mary come over to Marina’s flat armed with a bottle of bubbly.
It then wasn’t long before Mary was lusting over Bear Grylls as they watched his latest National Geographic series.
“If Bear Grylls came knocking on my door expecting to take me on an exhibition like this, I wouldn’t go, but if he came and knocked on my door and took me to some nice hotel [sic],” Mary said.
“That’s too tame for him, a hotel,” Marina said.
“It wouldn’t be tame after he’d been in the room with me,” Mary insisted.
As the pair later discussed the possibility of being able to go on holiday this summer, things got risqué when Marina admitted she was missing the feeling of “the sand between my toes”.
“I wondered what you were going to say then,” Mary cheekily replied as Marina started giggling.
Mary and Marina haven’t appeared on Gogglebox since last autumn, due to the Covid restrictions.
But with the easing of lockdown meaning it is now safe for them to mix indoors once again, viewers were delighted to see them back…
Who else cheered and got a bit choked when Mary and Marina came on ❤️😢 #Gogglebox
