Jenny is 64-years-old and her birthday is on June 2, while Lee is 51-years-old.
Jenny and Lee have been best friends for more than two decades.
They became friends when Jenny was the landlady of a pub called The Crown Inn in Paull, and Lee was a regular.
The pair have been inseparable ever since and often go on holiday together, with Lee previously describing Jenny as his family rather than just a friend.
Jenny's husband, Ray, has never appeared on the show and prefers to stay out of the limelight.
Gogglebox’s Lee Riley has been with his partner Steve Mail for 26 years.
On February, 7 Lee wrote on Twitter: “And I am so glad you did after 26 years together you’ve made me what I am today thank you.”
Jenny and Lee joined the fourth series of the show back in 2014.
Jenny was first approached by two Gogglebox researchers at Beverley Races Ladies’ Day. But Lee wasn’t sold on the idea at first, as he told The Hull Daily Mail: “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.”
According to The Sun, Gogglebox stars get paid £1,500 a month per family, which they can share out between themselves however they see fit.
