Do Jenny and Lee from Gogglebox live together?

Any fans of Gogglebox show will know that Jenny, 64, and Lee film from inside Lee's holiday caravan at Sand le Mere.

While they don't normally live together, they were able to shoot new episodes over the first lockdown because they decided to socially isolate together in the caravan.

They went their separate ways after the show stopped filming series 15 earlier this year, with Lee jetting back to Cyprus to be reunited with his boyfriend.

Lee explained the situation on Twitter, writing: "Thank you 🙏 🙏for all the lovely tweets and love from you all 😘makes it all worth while isolating with Jenny 😂 JOKING 🤔.

But now they are back in the caravan to make new episodes during the third lockdown in England.

The best friends met more than 20 years ago when Jenny was the landlady of the Crown pub in Paull, and Lee was a regular customer.

They have been inseparable ever since, which is why they decided to spend quarantine together.

This comes after plenty of viewers took to social media to ask if the pair were observing social distancing rules, with Gogglebox also receiving 20 Ofcom complaints.

"Why Jenny and Lee are not social distancing? Are they from the same household?", said one viewer.

Another asked: "How are Jenny and Lee still in their caravan?", while a third added: "Jenny and Lee don’t live together?"

And a fourth wrote: "Watching #Gogglebox, some of them are socially distancing, but not Jenny and Lee. She just said, about the hairs on her legs, it'll get worse. The caravan is hers, does he live there too?"

Gogglebox bosses recently revealed the show will continue to film during the coronavirus lockdown.

Channel 4 producers previously implemented changes to filming to make sure that it can continue to air every Friday evening at 9pm.

The key difference is that the cast don't welcome the camera crew into their homes.

Instead, they have stationary cameras in their living rooms without any contact with production staff.
