Gogglebox star Lee Riley has laid into his TV buddy Jenny Newby, by sharing a hilarious video of her attempt to cook up a storm in the kitchen.

Lee and Jenny did their best to cook up a Sunday roast at the weekend but soon started bickering over the crispiness of the chicken.

In a video posted on Instagram, Jenny can be seen taking two chickens out of the oven as Lee laughs hysterically at the texture of their skin.

Thankfully, Lee’s husband Steve was on hand to help and offer advice to the pair of pals from Hull.

Lee calls to his partner: “Steve, come have a look and see if these chickens are crispy, ‘cause they weren’t last time."

Steve then pokes the chicken with a knife as Gogglebox favourite Lee cracks up with laughter and exclaims that Jenny has “failed again”.

Jenny’s cooking skills have been the subject of Lee’s ridicule before, with him previously insulting her “soggy” chicken during a Gogglebox episode.

Their Instagram followers were quick to share their tips for preparing the perfect poultry dish in the comment section.

Co-star Izzi Warner told them to whack them under the grill, followed by laughing emojis, while a fan warned them to avoid opening the oven whilst the chicken was still cooking.

Jenny and Lee have been entertaining TV viewers with their light-hearted banter and witty musings since 2014.

They met over 20 years ago when Lee was a customer at his local pub, The Crown Inn, where Jenny was working behind the bar.

The duo began filming in Lee’s caravan, and they even lived together during lockdown in order to film the show.

Lee and his partner Steve Mail have been together for 26 years, and were recently separated during the lockdown, as Steve lives in Cyprus.

Luckily the lovebirds were reunited last year, and Steve gushed on social media: “From sunny Cyprus to wet and miserable Hull but Very happy to be Reunited with my better half and so good to see my dear friend Jenny."

Observant Gogglebox fans noticed Stephen make an off-screen cameo on the show last month when Lee was criticising Jenny’s "soggy" chicken.

He shouted to Steve: "Stephen, was the chicken crispy on Sunday?"

His voice could be heard in the background answering: "No."

A miffed Jenny replied: "Knackers to both of you – I won't do it no more."
