Gogglebox cast members Lee Riley and Jenny Newby have taken to Twitter to address rumours surrounding their future on the beloved Channel 4 show ahead of the final episode of series 17 this evening. The fan favourite pair, who are best friends, are loved by viewers for their hilarious commentary on the latest TV highlights.
As a result, many fans were left concerned when a recent social media post shared by the duo sparked speculation that they could be leaving Gogglebox.

Jenny then appeared and added: “And sad Friday!
“Because it’s my last one.”
Lee added: “Oh yeah, it’s our last filming week this week.
“So we’re filming today and…”
At this point, Jenny interrupted him, revealing: “I’m going home soon!”
The caption added to the clip read: “Have a great Friday everyone last week of filming for us of series 17.”
However, Jenny and Lee have now taken the opportunity to put the rumours to rest by issuing an apology to fans who were left in doubt about their future on the programme.
Replying to several of their Twitter followers to share the truth about the matter, the pair confirmed: “We are back in September sorry,” alongside crying with laughter emojis.
