Mary first appeared on the hugely popular show with her friend Marina back in 2016.

Mary Cook, one of the stars of Channel 4’s Gogglebox, has passed away at the age of 92.

Channel 4 released a statement today announcing her death.

It read: “We are extremely saddened to share that Gogglebox star Mary Cook passed away in hospital this weekend at the age of 92 with her family by her side.

“Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and dear friend to many, Mary, who worked in the hospitality trade, had been married and widowed twice.”

Mary started appearing on the series with her pal Marina in 2016.

The statement continued: “Bristolians Mary & Marina met at St Monica Trust retirement village over ten years ago and had been friends every since.

“They joined Gogglebox in 2016 at the start of series eight and became instant fan favourites dues to their brilliantly witty and often cheeky comments.

“Mary will be sorely missed by the entire Gogglebox family, cast and crew.”

Mary and Marina were absent from the last season of Gogglebox due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however they made a brief appearance in the show’s finale.
