Evie previously dated Jay, who also appeared with her family on Gogglebox over the first few series, and was jokily dubbed 'Silent Jay' as he never said a word while filming the show. The pair broke up back in 2015, and at the time a Channel 4 spokesman said: "It’s with great regret that Silent Jay is no longer in this series of Gogglebox. He has been an excellent contributor to Gogglebox, and we are very grateful for all he has given to the show." 

At the time, he told The Sun: "I’m gutted that Eve broke up with me. It came completely out of the blue. We had a few problems and started drifting apart but I thought it was down to the pressure of the show and her business." However, it looks like Jay is doing just fine, as his Instagram revealed that he has been in a relationship since the beginning of 2020.
