Gogglebox’s Jenny gives health update and confirms return to show after hospital admission
Gogglebox favourite Jenny Newbry has confirmed that she’ll be returning to the popular Channel 4 show for series 20.
Jenny and her best pal Lee Riley joined Gogglebox in 2014, and have made viewers belly laugh ever since.
While they’ve been regular faces on the programme, they've been absent of late after Jenny had an operation.
Addressing Jenny’s absence, Lee told the Daily Star at the daytime BAFTAs: “She is not very well.
"She is having an operation, a mini one, but she is recovering well though.”
He went on to say that his partner-in-crime had been invited to the prestigious event, but it fell on the same week as her surgery appointment.
"You can’t turn down an NHS operation down, can you?” Lee went on to quip. “But she is doing well."
Jenny has since issued a health update herself, and thanked everyone for their warm wishes.
In a video shared to the pair’s Instagram page, Lee began: “Hi everybody. You’ll never guess who I’ve just bumped into…” before panning the camera round to show Jenny.
“She’s out of hospital!” he went on to exclaim, as Jenny proceeded to thank everyone.

“I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind get well wishes,” she said.
“They really cheered me up. Thank you very much, and I’m looking forward to seeing you all in series 20.”
Lee went on to confirm that the next series will air in September, and wished everyone a joyful summer.
The video shared to their page, which boasts 715,000 followers, was captioned: “Hi everyone sorry for not been on for a while here’s a little video from Jenny for you all have a fabulous summer roll on September”.
Gogglebox fans have since rushed to the comments section of the post to express their happiness of Jenny feeling better, as well as the news of her comeback.
“Glad to see you’re feeling better Jenny lots of love,” penned fellow Gogglebox star Izzi Warner, as Daniel Lustig-Webb wrote: “Great to see you back Jenny,” followed by a heart emoji.
“Awww fantastic news have a lovely summer,” said someone else.
A fourth person penned: “Yass omg so happy to see you you’re doing well Jenny missed seeing you both on Gogglebox”.
Viewers aired their concerns about Jenny earlier this month after the duo failed to appear on the current season.
Many noted that the show wasn’t the same without them.
"I do love this show, but it’s just not the same without Lee and Jenny," one wrote.
"Just catching up on #Gogglebox where was Jenny and Lee?" another asked on Twitter.
