Gogglebox fans chuckle after Jenny and Lee undergo a 'gender swap'

Only one of them changed dramatically...

Fans of Gogglebox are laughing their way through the weekend after Jenny Newby and Lee Riley 'switched' genders.

Photos of the pair have been put into 'gender swap' app by a fan account and the results are rather amusing.

Sharing the before an after pictures on Twitter, the fan said: "Jenny and Lee as the opposite genders @leegogglebox #gogglebox."

While Lee came out with long blonde hair and a smoother face, Jenny looked... exactly the same. Oops!

One follower giggled: "Lee looks great, I can't tell the real Jenny!"

Another added: "Jenny doesn't look any different! Lee makes a great woman tho!"

A third posted three crying-laughing emojis and wrote: "Jenny looks exactly the same!"

Lee and Jenny have been best pals for more than two decades after meeting in a pub.

The pair found fame on Channel 4's Gogglebox in 2014 and fans love watching them critique the latest TV shows together.

During the most recent series, Jenny decided to move into Lee's caravan in Hull so they could continue filming.

The pair don't usually live together, so social distancing rules meant they would not have been allowed to sit in the same house.

The snap was taken in 2004 during a cruise, with Lee wearing a suit and Jenny in a pretty black dress.

Jenny also had brown hair in the picture and the duo were beaming as they cuddled up to each other.
