Gogglebox stars Dave and Shirley have shared an unrecognisable wedding photograph of themselves.

The couple, who put the picture up to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary, look very different to how they look now.

That’s not surprising of course as the picture was taken in the 1970s. Indeed Dave in the picture is wearing a typical 1970s brown suit!

We wonder if they could have imagined then that four decades later they'd be part of one of the biggest shows on television?!

The pair posted: “45 years tomorrow, this girl wished upon a star and her dreams came true. Happy anniversary darling.”

The post has already had 7,000 likes and the couple have received lots of messages of congratulations.

“Congratulations, what a beautiful photo so pretty, and the groom wasn’t bad either,” wrote one fan. Another tweeted: “Congratulations! What a lovely photo too. Have a lovely anniversary.” A third wrote: “Happy anniversary - you look fantastic on your wedding day.”
