Gogglebox’s Jenny celebrates granddaughter’s 21st birthday party alongside BFF Lee
12th April 2022

Gogglebox stars Jenny Newby and Lee Riley enjoyed a special celebration together over the weekend as they attended Jenny’s granddaughter’s 21st birthday party.

The long-time best pals posted a photo on their joint Instagram account from the party as they appeared dressed up in their finest for the occasion while posed beside the birthday girl herself, who stood out in a floor-sweeping red dress.

Jenny was pictured looking elegant in all-black wearing a flowing blouse and wide leg trousers with a long silver chain necklace, complementing close pal Lee’s matching black ensemble which consisted of a smart suit paired with a white shirt.

"When you go to your granddaughter’s joint 21st birthday party. Now I feel really old stunning,” the caption read.

Gogglebox fans might be surprised to know that Jenny is married to her husband Ray, as she does not appear on the Channel 4 show with him, filming with mate Lee instead at his mobile home in Hull.

Lee is also in a relationship, being in a 27-year relationship with boyfriend Steve Mail, who also does not participate in the hit series after he moved away to Cyprus and the pair have continued a long-distance relationship.


When Lee celebrated his 53rd birthday last September, partner Steve took to Instagram to honour him as he wrote: “A very happy 53rd birthday to my better half and my best friend in the world love you to the moon and back…

“Thank you for yet another amazing summer here in beautiful Cyprus…

“I will miss you so much as you prepare to head back to Blighty for the next instalment of Gogglebox when you will finally reunite with your sidekick the adorable Jenny Newby”.

Jenny and Lee became the best of friends after meeting in a pub 20 years ago and appear to have been inseparable ever since.

The comedic duo have gained quite the fanbase after appearing on Gogglebox and followers were recently happy to be presented with a throwback photo of Jenny and Lee from 2004 as they enjoyed a cruise trip together.

The snap showed the pair modelling similar dark hair as they flashed smiles while Jenny was shown holding onto a bouquet of flowers.

'”Old photo 16 years ago of me and Jenny on a cruise taking the p**s and no before you ask we didn’t get married!” Lee captioned hilariously.
