The co-stars moved in together so they could continue to film the current series of the show during lockdown.

After some concerned viewers thought that Jenny and Lee were breaking the social distancing rules during the coronavirus outbreak, Lee hit back on Twitter.

He said at that time: "Well what can we say it's Friday and it's still on #Gogglebox. Jenny and me watching together as we are both on lockdown TOGETHER, friends with no benefits I may add! An hour of laughs stay safe stay well."
