Lee Riley – one of Gogglebox’s most popular characters – has taken a break from filming the Channel 4 series to visit his boyfriend Steve Mail in Cyprus.

The pair have been together for nearly 28 years with Steve clearly happy to have Lee back at his side judging by the words he posted on Instagram next to a photo of them both.

Steve’s post read: “So good to have you home my love even if only for a break #happydays #sunshine #letsparty”.

Lee pays regular visits to the Mediterranean island to spend quality time with his long-term partner and fans of the program shared the happiness of the two men as they left comments under Steve’s post.

Lee and Jenny deliver their hilarious Easter message on Instagram



One said: “Have an amazing break both of you. You really do make a lovely couple, great photo. Much love from this 76 year old Wiltshire grandma.”

Another, in reference to Lee’s Gogglebox sofa companion Jenny Newby, added: “Have lots of fun you two. Has Jenny joined you?” A third message then read: “Hope you both have a great time in Sunny Cyprus love Carol N.”

Lee and Jenny are fan favorites on Gogglebox with their rib-tickling observations on the week’s TV highlights, as well as their lives in general, from a caravan in Hull.

They regularly have viewers in stitches with the new series of the hit Friday night show having returned to the nation’s screens in February.

Before he parted for Cyprus, Lee and Jenny posted an Easter message on their joint Instagram account, which boasts just under 700,000 followers. The 41-second long video clip was watched by more than 500,000 people and starts with both of them wishing everybody a Happy Easter.

Lee then announces that he is going to take Jenny on an Easter hunt around the park. A confused looking Jenny then says: “What?”

Lee laughs and repeats: “Yeah, an Easter hunt.” Jenny, still puzzled, asks: “What am I looking for?”

After laughing for longer and louder, Lee replies: “Easter eggs!” Jenny realizes what he’s talking about and says: “Oh yeah, sorry” before insisting: “I’m not going walking around a park. People will think I’m daft,” which she exclaims with a pair of rabbit ears on her head and whiskers painted on her face.

Following further laughter, Lee responds: “So you’re not going? I didn’t think you would.

“You’d rather get them out of my fridge, wouldn’t you?” Jenny agrees and asks Lee if he has got any in.

When he reveals that he has, she reasons: “Well I’ll have one out of the fridge. It will save me walking!” The video then finishes with both of them wishing their fans a happy Easter and waving goodbye.

Gogglebox airs Friday at 9pm on Channel 4
