A year in the life of Gogglebox's Giles and Mary, as Giles is swamped by Mary's hoarding, Mary is a pawn in the Easel Wars, Giles frames Mary in a dishwasher showdown and Mary struggles with vexatious laundry.

Everybody is a somebody.

Giles is a countryman who relishes solitude. His wife Mary thrives in company and enjoys frequent escapes to London.

After thirty years in a marriage of opposites, Giles and Mary have adapted to a life of domestic misunderstandings within comical misadventures.

In The Diary of Two Nobodies, you will have the unique opportunity to discover, first hand, what occurs when a man who sees himself as a cross between Mr Bean and Basil Fawlty shares his life with a woman who identifies closely with the Queen.

Featuring original illustrations by the artist Giles, himself.
