How did Gogglebox’s Jenny and Lee meet?

Gogglebox is back on our screens tonight for a festive special.

The cast will once again be bringing us some laughs, and tears, as they comment on the best telly from the past week.

Best friends Jenny and Lee have been fan favourites since they joined the show in 2014, with their hilarious comments and close relationship.

So, how old are Jenny and Lee, and how did they meet?

What age are Jenny and Lee from Gogglebox?

Jenny Newby is 65, while Lee Riley is 51.

The pair both live in Patrington Haven caravan park in Hull.

They moved in with each other during the first lockdown which allowed them to keep filming, but have since decided to move back in with their respective partners.

Jenny’s husband Ray prefers to stay out of the limelight, as does Lee’s partner Steve who he has been with for 26 years.

How long have Jenny and Lee from Gogglebox known each other?

Jenny and Lee go way back – 22 years back, to be precise.

They first met at a pub in Pull, East Yorkshire where Jenny was the landlady and Lee was a regular.

Jenny told Ireland’s Big Issue Magazine: ‘Lee was a customer at my pub, The Crown Inn in Paull.

‘He became a regular in 1994 and used to come in pretty much every night with his partner and we were friends from the off.

‘We’ve been best friends ever since.’

Lee added ‘I don’t think we’ve ever had an argument. We’re too placid to argue. She makes me laugh too much for me to ever fall out with her.’

The Gogglebox Festive Special starts tonight at 9pm on Channel 4.
