Giles Wood and Mary Killen are perhaps two of the most beloved Gogglebox stars to ever feature on the Channel 4 series.

The pair first featured on the show in 2015 and have been two of the UK’s favourite armchair critics ever since.

However, incredibly well-spoken and with an accent that is almost too posh to decipher at times, where is Mary Killen actually from?

Who is Mary Killen?

Mary is an author and former journalist having worked with the likes of The Times and the Daily Express since 1984.

Apparently, she also used to be a model, where she met Giles while studying at Wimbledon Art School at the age of 21.

The Gogglebox star has three books on Amazon, titled How to Live with Your Husband, How the Queen Can Make You Happy and The Diary of Two Nobodies – this one is by both Mary and Giles.

Mary also regularly writes a ‘Dear Mary‘ column for online British magazine The Spectator, answering topical questions on marriage.

Husband Giles is an accomplished artist and still works in the painting industry.

Where is Mary Killen from?

Mary hails from Wiltshire, as does Giles.

The loveable duo live in a picturesque and Hobbit-like cottage in a small village called Pewsey, which is close to the Cotswolds.
