The best friends from Hull met more than 20 years ago, when Jenny was the landlady of The Crown pub in Paull, East Riding, and Lee was a regular customer. The pair have been appearing on Channel 4's reality show since 2014, filming from inside Lee's holiday caravan in Sand le Mere. Jenny, 64, and Lee, 51, are so close that they even decided to self-isolate together for nine weeks so they could safely film the latest series of Gogglebox. Now that the show has come to an end, they have been able to reunite with their partners; Jenny is married to husband Ryan, and Lee has been with his partner Steve for the past 26 years.
