GOOGLEBOX's Lee Riley had an emotional reunion with his husband Steve Mail after he was forced to quarantine away from his other half.
The TV star was back filming brand new episodes of the Channel 4 hit show but had to quarantine with his best pal and Gogglebox partner Jenny Newby in line with Covid guidelines.
That meant spending time apart from his partner of 26 years, but they were reunited back at Lee's iconic Hull caravan.
Steve flew from his home in Cyrpus after not seeing his husband for more than a month.
He posted a selfie to his Instagram of himself and the Gogglebox stars sitting on Jenny's couch.
Sat in between the stars, a smitten Steve was beaming alongside the happy pair as he rested his arm on Lee's shoulder.
Jenny sat behind him with her hand resting on Steve's shoulder as she glowed in a stylish flower top.
Steve captioned the adorable pic: "From sunny Cyprus to wet and miserable Hull but Very happy to be Reunited with my better half and so good to see my dear friend Jenny."
Fans rushed to congratulate them on reuniting and asked if Steve might be appearing on the show.
One Instagram user wrote: "Never seen your other half on it before though, will he be joining you both?"
While another added: "Let's have all three of you on Gogglebox"
And a third said: "Excellent news for you to finally be together again."
Lee had an emotional farewell with his boyfriend Steve last month as he flew back to the UK from Cyprus.
The telly favourite had a goodbye dinner with his partner of 26 years before leaving to film the brand new season of Gogglebox.
Steve wrote on social media: "Never tire of this peaceful and chilled idyllic hideaway thanks for a fabulous time Lee Riley safe journey back to Blighty.
"Love you to the moon and back #vounikinghotelandrestaurant #cyprus2020 #gogglebox #series16."
The hit Channel 4 programme, where families analyse and share witty opinions on the nation's favourite shows, returned last month.
This hilarious pair film Gogglebox inside a caravan in Hull but it's not clear what they get up to when they're not sobbing or laughing while watching the telly.
While many think Jenny and Lee are mother and son or husband and wife, the duo are just firm friends.
They met when Jenny was the landlady of the Crown Inn pub in Paull and Lee was a regular customer.
The pair landed their spot on the show when Jenny met two of the show's researchers at Beverley Races Ladies' Day and they reportedly signed her up on the spot.
