Gogglebox fans were delighted to see Mary and Marina back on their screens on Friday night.

However, they were able to offer their views on the latest shows on telly this evening (May 21).

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "So happy to see Mary and Marina back on #Gogglebox hasn't been the same without them."

Another added: "Mary and Marina are back. Life is good."

A third person posted: "Mary and Marina are back on #Gogglebox! Hurray."

While a fourth social media said: "Lovely to see Mary and Marina looking well."

Gogglebox bosses announced that Mary and Marina would be back hours before the episode aired.

Announcing the news, a tweet from the official Gogglebox account read: "We’ve got a sweet treat in store for you tonight… Mary and Marina are back for the series finale!"

It featured a short clip of the pair back together as they each tucked into a cream horn.

The stars of the hit Channel 4 show have been posting about their final days filming from the comfort of their sofas after three months on air.
