Goggleboxs Marina Wingrove too upset to talk on Mary Cooks devastating death

Marina Wingrove has revealed she's not ready to speak about her best friend and Gogglebox co-star Mary Cook's death.

It was announced on Monday 23 August that the fan-favourite passed away in hospital over the weekend at the age of 92 with her family by her side.

Mary and Marina have lived in flats next door to each other in Bedminster, Bristol, for over a decade and have been filming for the hit Channel 4 show since 2016.

Understandably, Marina is taking some time to process the loss of her friend, but paid a short tribute to her by saying her passing is "very sad".

She added: "I'm a bit upset at the moment. I don't really want to talk about it."

Mary's death was announced through the Gogglebox Twitter account, which explained: "We are extremely sad 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.

"Bristolians Mary & Marina met at St Monica Trust retirement village over ten years ago and had been friends ever since.

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

"Mary will be sorely missed by the entire Gogglebox family, cast and crew," the statement ended.
