Gogglebox fans were thrilled and amused by regular participant Jenny Newby’s festive greeting to her co-star Lee Riley.
The 65-year-old professional couch potato appeared to be in the midst of a game of Speak Out – the hilarious board game which involves participants speaking phrases while having their mouth held open by a plastic device.
While it might be unclear to many exactly what Jenny was saying, her message to 52-year-old friend Lee left many in hysterics as she slurred and wheezed out a greeting.
The message itself seemed to have been sent to Lee, and his boyfriend Steve Mail, directly – but the TV star promptly uploaded the message to Instagram for fans and followers to watch too.
Sharing the footage, Lee wrote: “When Jenny sends me and Steve a Christmas message to us in Cyprus think the drinks have kicked in.”
The footage showed Jenny with her mouth agape and wearing a bright pink festive jumper.
She could be heard saying: “Hiya Lee and Steve.”
While other barely distinguishable comments included: “I’d just like to wish you a very happy Christmas and a Happy New Year,” and: “I’ll see you soon.”
Fans and followers of Jenny and Lee’s shared Gogglebox Instagram account were quick to share their joy at seeing Jenny sending her festive message.
One follower laughed: “Sooooo funny Jenny”
And another wrote: “It’s always gold with you lot. Have a happy and safe 2022.”
Meanwhile, members of the wider Gogglebox family also commented on the post, with Mica and Marcus typing: “Happy Christmas guys love from Mica and Marcus.”
And Ellie Warner commented: “Happy Christmas to you both.”
Lee and Steve are currently enjoying a luxury break in Cyprus where they are staying at the 5-star Merit Crystal Cove Hotel.
The duo have been making some followers green with envy as they have been sharing sun-soaked photos from their trip.
Sharing a selfie via Instagram last week, Steve wrote: “Merry Christmas everyone hope you all have an amazing day love and best wishes from sunny Cyprus.”
One jealous fan responded to the message to write: “It’s bloody freezing here in the UK. I’m so jealous. You both look amazing.”
