The pair were forced to part ways as Lee self-isolated with Jenny to film the Channel 4 series, while Steve lives in Cyprus. Commenting on the sweet post, Steve wrote: "From sunny Cyprus to wet and miserable Hull. Very happy to be reunited with my better half and so good to see my dear friend Jenny #fridayfilming #gogglebox #happydays #holidays."

The pair were separated during the lockdown in March, but were thankfully reunited in August when Lee went to visit Steve in Cyprus. Sharing a photo of them on holiday, Steve wrote: "Never tire of this peaceful and chilled idyllic hideaway thanks for a fabulous time Lee Riley, safe journey back to Blighty."

The pair reunited as Steve visited Hull

Jenny and Lee are fan favourites on the beloved Channel 4 show, and often make their followers laugh by teasing each other on social media. Lee was recently left in hysterics on Twitter when their relationship was praised by a somewhat confused fan, who wrote: "Why haven't Lee and his mum got their own programme yet? #Gogglebox."

Replying to the mistake, with the Twitter user clearly thinking poor Jenny was Lee's mum, Lee wrote: "OMG," with a series of laughing crying emojis. Fans were quick to reassure Jenny she had nothing to worry about, with one writing: "How rude how very dare you... they are best friends."
