Lee Riley, who appears on Gogglebox alongside friend Jenny Newby, paid tribute to his partner Steve Mail in a heartfelt Instagram post. Sharing a selfie alongside his other half, Lee lamented that he was not able to celebrate his birthday with him.
Lee’s heartache comes as Gogglebox has been surprisingly dropped and replaced in the Channel 4 schedules this Friday night.
He captioned the shot: “A big Happy birthday to the love of my life have a fabulous day in sunny Cyprus.
“Gutted I Carn’t be with you to celebrate,” Lee concluded, alongside two red love hearts.
Fans of the TV star rushed to the comments section to wish Steve a happy birthday as they praised the couple on their relationship.
Veryblessedlifeisshort commented: “What a beautiful couple you make!!!
“Happy Birthday to your better half and I wish you many many more birthdays to celebrate together.”
Natsystew added: “How Handsome you both are so happy for you both.”
Sadramanson1960l penned: “Happy Birthday Lee, have fantastic holiday, you look amazing and both of you are so happy xx”
Mudflail chimed in: “What a handsome couple!”
Lee’s emotional post comes after Gogglebox was moved from its usual Friday night slot this week to another evening, due to a special show airing.
Channel 4 bosses made the change for the one-off revival of the stand-up and entertainment show Friday Night Live.
Instead, this week, the new Gogglebox instalment will air on Saturday night at 9pm.
An announcement following Send Nudes: Body SOS on Wednesday night revealed the temporary shake-up.
The broadcaster said: “It’s one for your diary. Brand new Gogglebox isn’t on its usual Friday night spot.
“Saturday at 9pm is your go-to for this week over on Channel 4.”
Back in August, Jenny paid a sentimental tribute to her best friend and Channel 4 co-star Lee following their BAFTA win earlier in the year.
Jenny, 66, had been forced to miss the glitzy event as she was undergoing surgery following a two-year wait.
She penned on Instagram: “Hiya, Lee. It’s only me. I’ve got my BAFTA. I know I couldn’t be there with you on the night.
She went on: “I swapped my evening gown for my theatre gown, and my black stocking for surgical stockings and my silver clutch bag for a catheter bag.
“But all in all, I never got to say thank you for the support you gave me through the pandemic when we were filming.
“The things that you did for me. Like, giving me that 9ft by 5ft bedroom, wall to wall walls, and enough room under the bed for my Pot Noodle and a packet of fags.”
