We love that Celebrity Gogglebox is currently on our screens, and love spending our Friday nights hanging out with our favourite starry sofa families ahead of the usual show's return. However, there is one beloved Goggleboxer who hasn't appeared on the show since 2015. Yes, we're talking about the one and only Silent Jay.
READ: How much do the families get paid on Gogglebox?
Jay earned his nickname after appearing on the show alongside his then-girlfriend Evie Woerdenweber and her parents, Viv and Ralph, but never saying a word about what they were watching, leading him to gain an affectionate fan following. So what has Silent Jay been up to since the show? Is he indeed still silent? Find out here...
Jay left the series in 2015 after splitting from girlfriend Evie
Jay has been doing just fine since leaving the show, and recently posted a sweet Instagram snap about his girlfriend, Hollie. He wrote: "So six months ago today this pretty lady done me the honour of being my girlfriend and tbh it’s the happiest I’ve ever been! You’ve managed to make me smile more than I thought was even possible and I couldn’t think of anyone else I’d rather have by my side for the rest of my life!
