Gogglebox’ has a history of making unlikely stars, and newcomers Marina and Mary from Bristol are already our favourite thing about the new series. 

The pair only joined the hit Channel 4 show last month, but already they’ve won everyone over with their West Country charm, witty one-liners and their adorable friendship.

In fact, we’d go as far as saying they’re the best additions to the ‘Gogglebox’ gang since Scarlett Moffatt parked her behind on her parents’ sofa back in series three.  

So without further ado, here’s 12 reasons why we love the Bristolian BFFs so much. 

1. It may have puzzled scientists for years, but they reckon they know how to successfully perform a head transplant
