Gogglebox Lee sends sweet birthday message to ‘sidekick’ Jenny

Gogglebox favourite Lee has issued a sweet birthday message to his “sidekick” Jenny.

Hull Live told recently how Jenny had revealed that she would be entitled to start drawing her pension when she turned 66.

The Channel Four favourite told her TV co-star and best friend Lee Riley that she would turn 66 in June, the age that women in the UK are able to start drawing their pension for the first time.

And June 2 marked Jenny’s 66th birthday, with Lee sharing a lovely picture of Jenny sat on the caravan sofa and smiling with her thumbs up.

Lee took to their shared Instagram account to share the snap and to wish her happy birthday.

“A big happy 66th birthday to my side kick and best friend Jenny have a great day my lovely xxx” he wrote.
