Jenny and Lee from Gogglebox have fans fearing the worst as they separate

All good things...

Jenny and Lee left Gogglebox fans fearing the worst last night over rumours they are leaving the show.

Viewers were sent into a spin after the loveable pair previously commented about the current series coming to an end.

Jenny wrote on Instagram last week that Friday’s show would be her “last one”.

But thankfully, Jenny and Lee have confirmed they aren’t leaving Gogglebox  – just bidding farewell until September. Phew!

A third told Jenny and Lee how disappointed they were that the series has ended before Eurovision.

The iconic singing competition is back tonight (May 22, 2021) after a two-year break.

“Gutted we can’t see your opinions on Eurovision. Would have been hilarious! Have a great summer,” the fan said.

Who is Jenny married to?

Jenny and Lee have been best friends for 20 years, but the main man in her life is her hubby Ray.

Last month, Ray made a cameo in a Gogglebox having never appeared in the show before.

But viewers didn’t get to see his face. Instead, Jenny was seen chatting to her husband on the phone.

She said: “Ray, can you do me a favour and pick up my prescription tomorrow?”

Unfortunately, it appeared Ray was unable to hear his wife due to bad signal.

“Hold on a minute!” she told him. But before fans even got to hear his voice, Jenny told Lee: “Oh, it’s gone off!”

The pair then giggled while viewers also shared their reactions on Twitter.

One tweeted: “Lol I think that was your answer then Jenny #Gogglebox!”

How did Jenny and Lee meet?

Given Ray’s desire to stay out of the limelight, Jenny asked her best pal Lee to audition with her for Gogglebox.

The pair, from Hull, Yorkshire, landed a spot on the hit Channel 4 show in eight years ago, but their friendship goes way back.

Lee has been in a relationship with his partner Steve Mail for 26 years.
