Gogglebox fans swoon over Lee’s Valentine’s Day tribute

Fans are swooning over a Valentines Day post from Gogglebox star Lee Riley’s partner – describing the popular Channel 4 star as “the guy of my dreams”.

Steve Mail, longstanding partner of one half of Hull’s famous static caravan duo Jenny and Lee, has shared an Instagram post to mark Valentine’s Day.

To commemorate the romantic holiday, Steve posted: “27 years ago I gave a Valentines card to the guy of my dreams. The rest is history. Love you to the moon and back Mr Riley #happyvalentinesday”

The Instagram post, which shows the lovers smiling at the camera as Steve wraps his arm around Lee, has racked up over 300 likes and had fans of the show wishing the pair a Happy Valentines Day.

One fan commented: “Happy Valentine’s Day Steve and Lee, have a great day”. Another wrote to the loved up pair: “You two are so cute! #couplegoals”

Another well-wishing fan commented: “Many congratulations to you both, here’s to the next 27.”

Lee joined counterpart Jenny on our screens to watch their screens back in 2014 and while the pair have been besties for years – they rarely discuss their personal lives.

Despite keeping hush-hush on their romantic endeavours, Lee has been with partner Steve for 27 years, as the soppy Instagram post states, while the pair have had their fair share of bumps in the road including having to live separately for six months during the coronavirus lockdown in March 2020.

After reuniting in August, they were soon separated again after a brief holiday in Cyprus, when Lee had to return to the UK to film more Gogglebox episodes for patiently waiting fans.

Steve wrote on his social media at the time: “Never tire of this peaceful and chilled idyllic hideaway thanks for a fabulous time Lee Riley safe journey back to Blighty.

“Love you to the moon and back #vounikinghotelandrestaurant #cyprus2020 #gogglebox #series16.”
