‘I’m looking forward to seeing you all in series 20,’ she added.
Lee confirmed: ‘September guys… we’ll be back in September! Have a lovely Summer everybody.’
He captioned the clip: ‘Just a quick message to say all is well with Jenny and thank you for your support and well wishes have a great summer and see you all in September much love Jenny and Lee xx.’
Fans were delighted at the news, with one writing: ‘Can’t wait for September, counting down the days. You make me smile and laugh.’
Another penned: ‘I’m glad all went well with Jenny and she’s feeling better now, look forward to seeing you both in September, you’re my favourite on Gogglebox xx.’
The dynamic duo joined the fourth series of Gogglebox in 2014, having been friends for two decades.
