Lee had given fans updates of his trip to Cyprus from his home in Hull.

"Arrived safe and sound in Istanbul," he wrote.

"Next stop sunny Cyprus and home for the festive season. We wish each and everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy healthy 2022."

Lee and Jenny, 65, are longtime pals from Hull who get together when he's not in Cyprus, where he spends his time when not on Gogglebox.

Jenny was scouted for the show at Beverly Ladies Day after meeting a Channel 4 researcher, and she made sure Lee was brought in as her partner-in-crime.

While not much is known about Jenny's husband Ray, Lee has been with his partner Steve for 26 years.

The pair met when Jenny was the landlady of a pub in Paull – a village in Yorkshire – that Lee was a regular in.

He revealed she had to talk him into joining saying: "To be honest and I didn’t want to do it.

"I’d say it took her about an hour and a half to talk me into it – about as long as it took me to get me out of bed.”
