Gogglebox paid tribute to Andy Michael and Mary Cook on Friday after the pair sadly died within days of each other in August. Fans of the Channel 4 show were left in tears by the poignant message but some were quick to share their concern at fellow star Pete McGarry being left out of the tribute. 

Friday’s episode ended with “In loving memory” cards dedicated to Mary and Andy. 

Mary was seen pictured with her Gogglebox co-star and best friend Marina. 

Andy was surrounded by his wife Carolyne, daughter Alex and son Louis.

Channel 4 viewers were touched by the tribute but questioned why Pete McGarry had been “left out”.

“#Gogglebox @Gogglebox very moving tributes for Mary Cook and Andy Michael’s, but you left out Pete,” another wrote. 

Alongside a crying emoji, a third added: “Lovely tribute memorial for Mary and Andy Gone but never forgotten #Gogglebox #CelebrityGogglebox.”

“Rest in Peace Mary and Andy #Gogglebox #CelebrityGogglebox,” someone else said in tears. 

“What a lovely dedication to Mary and Andy #gogglebox,” a fifth wrote.

Despite viewers’ concerns, the Channel 4 show paid tribute to Pete during an episode of Celebrity Gogglebox in July.
