Gogglebox fans were left in stitches on Friday night when Jenny Newby showcased a special new look that she prepared for the night in readiness to watch a new episode of Peaky Blinders.
The 65-year-old professional couch potato had her co-star Lee Riley, 51, in fits of laughter as she donned a baker boy hat and took her seat behind him.
As part of their recap of a week of TV, the cast of the hit Channel 4 show sat down to watch the first episode of season six of Peaky Blinder.
And Jenny was excited to get extra involved as she effectively wore a themed costume that made her look a little like an extra from the popular BBC crime drama.
Shuffling into view during the episode as Lee started to laugh, Jenny explained: “Do you know, Lee, I bought this two years ago.”
She added: “I never had the chance to wear it so I thought I’d wear it tonight.”
The moment was welcomed by viewers, who agreed that Jenny’s humour was the perfect distraction from current troubling world events.
One fan wrote on Twitter : “Telly moment of the week – thanks for all the laughs during such dark times.”
Another fan was delighted by Jenny’s cosplay look, tweeting: “Jenny is an absolute hoot! So cute in her cap.”
While another viewer added: “I just snorted out soup at Jenny’s cap.”
In an episode of the popular reality show that aired last month, Jenny stunned fans when she made a confession about visiting a sex shop to buy Lee a gift.
She presented him with a mug that was moulded at an angle and which a rainbow flag design and the slogan: “I’m so gay, I can’t even drink straight!”
Jenny informed her sofa pal: “I saw it in a sex shop!”
A shocked Lee then whipped around to face Jenny, his laugher immediately ceased, and he asked: “What was you doing in a sex shop in Benidorm?”
Jenny then innocently insister: “I saw it in the window!”
Fans at the time took to Twitter to laugh at the moment, with one joking: “‘I saw it in the window’ Oh aye Jenny, we believe you.”
Meanwhile, the cast of Gogglebox grew last week with the arrival of the show’s first ever Scottish participants.

Glasgow-based Roisin Kelly, 23, and Joe Kyle, 25, joined the show following an appeal by Channel 4 bosses to uncover a Scottish household to join the fun.
However, a few viewers asked for subtitles as they didn’t pick up on what the Scottish couple were saying.
Many took to Twitter to post the same exact request in a short amount of time.
“The new Scottish couple need to appear with subtitles,” one user said while another posted: ” Gogglebox didnt get a word of that.”
Gogglebox airs on Channel 4 on Fridays at 9pm.
