Gogglebox Legends Mary And Marina Both Get Covid Vaccine Together
The ladies, who are both in their 90s, were snapped getting their first dose in Bristol in a compilation video released by their local NHS trust this week, posing in their masks to mark the exciting moment.
In the pic, Mary is being given her jab while Marina looks on next to her.
When the pandemic first took hold, the duo weren't on screens, as they are both in the high risk group.
Gogglebox creator Tania Alexander said that including them in the series would simply be 'too risky' but promised the pair were being "well looked after."
They have been self isolating in sheltered flats together for months.
"Seeing this has really warmed my heart. Sending tons of love to these 2 beauties xx," wrote on fan of the show after the image cropped up on Twitter.
While another wrote: "That's great news, looking forward to seeing them back on Gogglebox very soon".
"These ladies are a tonic. They have me giggling every time. Looking forward to seeing you on Gogglebox," said a third.

Here's hoping that now they've had their jabs, the pair are one step closer to appearing on our tellies once again.
On the subject of the Covid-19 vaccine, fellow Gogglebox star Pete Sandiford left some viewers shocked when he said he wouldn't be getting it when it first passed trials.
"50 per cent of me is very excited, the other 50 is thinking, at some point, I'm gonna have to have [an] injection here," his sister Sophie said.
Before Pete chipped in: "I'm not having it, I don't like injections."
"Pete. Man up and take the f*ck*ng vaccine. #gogglebox," one person wrote after watching his comments air.
Season 16 of Gogglebox came to an end in December last year, and we don't yet have an exact date for the 17th season.
However, we do know it's back in February - so, not long to wait!
