Gogglebox cast favourite Jenny Newby delighted fans as she shared some personal news during a recent episode of the Channel 4 show. The former pub landlady was sat with her friend Lee Riley in their caravan discussing updates from the week’s latest television shows.

Jenny revealed she had received a certificate after successfully giving up smoking.

The Channel 4 star revealed that she no longer coughs and has been feeling better.

Lee quizzed: “What have you got?”

He then realised it was a certificate, as he read aloud: “Jennifer Newby has successfully quit smoking.”

Jenny replied: “I must admit I haven’t missed it. The actual smoking because I was getting to a stage where I wasn’t right and I wasn’t well.

“I was coughing all of the time and now I don’t cough.”

She chuckled: “So not only does it save me [money] on cigarettes it saves me on Tena Lady because I’m not coughing so much.”

Fans flocked to social media and congratulated the reality star on her achievement.

“Well done Jenny for quitting smoking,” one social media user penned.

Another wrote: “Congratulations Jenny,” while a third added: “That’s great news.”

A fourth remarked: “Congrats Jenny for stopping smoking!”

Jenny and Lee have starred on the show since 2014 and have become firm favourites with viewers.
