Gogglebox’s Lee jets to Cyprus for sweet reunion with partner after months apart

Gogglebox favourite Lee Riley has finally reunited with his partner Steve after eight months apart.

Lee's partner Steve has been staying sunny Cyprus while Lee has been shacking up with his best pal Jenny Newby in Hull for the last 11 weeks.

Lee and Jenny were forced to live together in a Covid bubble due to lockdown restrictions whilst filming for the Channel 4 television-watching show.

But now with the show on a break until the autumn, the beloved TV duo are able to see their loved ones again – and Lee will be catching the sunrays as he is jetting off to Cyprus to see his partner Steve.

Lee, who has been with Steve for nearly 30 years, was delighted to be able to share a sunny snap of him and his partner smiling in the sun.

Taking to social media, Lee shared Steve's photo of the two by the pool to his Instagram Story.

In the happy couple pic, partner Steve was celebrating their anniversary, and captioned the pic: "After 8 long months in England it feels amazing to be finally back home here in sunny northern Cyprus in time for our 27th anniversary.

"Love you Mr Riley let the celebrations begin #homeiswheretheheartis."

Lee then posted his own photo, a throwback photo of the two from years ago, writing: "Happy anniversary to us 27 years wow xx" before adding a love-heart emoji to express his affection.

Last November it was reported Steve had managed to fly over the UK to see his partner and Jenny.

The cheerful trio posted a photo of themselves on a beach walk near the Hull caravan park where they film the show.

The pair remain one of the longest serving stars on the show – and many would say funniest – so fans are always delighted to see what they get up to off-screen.

Last month, Lee and Jenny worried fans when they seemed to hint they were leaving the show but they quickly reassured their viewers Jenny was simply going home to see her husband after 3 months apart from him.

Taking to Twitter, Lee tweeted: "Thanks for watching everyone time for Jenny to see her husband after 3 months with me.

"Really going to miss her tho have a great summer everyone. SEE YOU ALL IN SEPTEMBER xx."

Celebrity Gogglebox airs on Channel 4 on Fridays at 9pm, and Gogglebox is expected to return with new episodes in September.
