Gogglebox favorite Lee Riley took to Instagram today (Friday, November 26) to share a return photo of his Channel 4 co-star Jenny Newby on their joint profile.
Jenny, 65, looked unrecognizable as a brunette wearing a mid-rise perm with big black earrings and trendy shoulder pads from 40 years ago.
Co-star and best friend Lee Riley wrote: “She’s going to go crazy for me […] Jenny with the 80s perm x “.
The post gained nearly 29,000 likes with fans commenting, “Hey, we all did. If you didn’t have a perm in the ’80s, were you even there?”
Another fan commented: “She looks fabulous !! … I bet you got one too Lee !!”
One fan said: “Jenny aka Barbara Streisand.”
The couple have 615,000 Instagram followers for their official account which they update regularly and use to engage with their viewers.
Jenny and Lee have been best friends for over two decades and are often seen together, as well as with Lee’s 26-year partner Steve, who occasionally appears on their thread.
Meanwhile, Jenny usually lives with her husband, Ray, who has never appeared on the show.
The Gogglebox co-stars became friends when Jenny was the owner of The Crown Inn pub in Paull, and Lee was a regular.
Jenny was spotted for Gogglebox at Beverley Ladies Day after telling a Channel 4 researcher how much she enjoyed the show.
She said Daily Hull Mail in 2019: “I was a big fan of it from the start.
“If my friends were going out I would say, ‘I can’t, I have to stay inside and watch Gogglebox. I loved it. So to be on it is amazing. I never thought it would be the one. cases happen in a million years. “
Lee initially said no when approached.
The 52-year-old said: “To be honest, I had never heard of Gogglebox and didn’t want to.
“I would say it took him about an hour and a half to convince me – about as long as it took me to get out of bed.”
Jenny also admitted that she didn’t watch herself with Lee on the late night reality show.
“At first I didn’t like looking at myself in case I saw something I was doing that I didn’t like and tried to change it.
“I thought if I tried to stop doing something, it wouldn’t be my real self. I want it to be as natural as possible.”
Gogglebox continues tonight at 9 p.m. on Channel 4.
