Gogglebox’s Dave and Shirley share brilliant fancy dress picture ahead of World Book Day

You can never say that an appearance from Dave and Shirley on Gogglebox is dull and this week they’ve been brilliantly throwing their support behind reading, with Shirley pictured in a shop window dressed as a bee.

We can’t tell if Dave is dressed up in support of World Book Day – which is on Thursday, March 3 – as he’s the one doing the photography, but Shirley’s decked out in an appropriately stripey dress and socks with some yellow deely-boppers to complete the perfect look.

She’s also joined by two pals in animal fancy dress.

The caption on the picture reads: “Busy bee #Gogglebox shirley #nationalbookmonth ime bizy bizy doing nothing xx”

They’re a bit early for National Book Month, which is in October, but they’re right on time for World Book Day – we wonder if Shirl is doing any readings of the Busy Bee to celebrate? You can get your own inspiration for last-minute World Book Day outfits here.

The Caerphilly couple are always delighting Gogglebox fans with their brilliant Welsh quips and funny comments on the Channel 4 show, which returned at the end of February. Shirley revealed last year that she worked in a local charity shop when she told Dave about some of the rude donations they receive.

Followers of their Instagram account are often treated to selfies of the pair getting ready for their show appearances and sometimes a throwback to their younger days. The couple have been married for 46 years and joined the cast of the show, which is now onto its 19th series, in 2015 and quickly became fan favourites.
