Gogglebox viewers were sent into meltdown during Friday's instalment of the Channel 4 show as Lee Riley and Jenny Newby were joined by a mystery man.
As the armchair critics watched clips of chef Nigella Lawson making a fried chicken sandwich, Lee managed to offend his best friend Jenny by telling her that the chicken she had recently cooked was not crispy.
While Jenny, 64, protested that it wasn’t as bad as Lee, 51, was making out, he enlisted back up from Steven to confirm that her chicken was in fact not crispy at all.
Viewers were baffled why there was suddenly an unidentified voice off-camera.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Who on earth is Steven?"
Another added: ‘Who is Steven at Lee and Jenny's? We must know."
A third said: "“Who the f*ck is Steven? Where did he come from??"
While a fourth person posted: "Who’s this Steven person in the caravan? Or is it the Hull version of Alexa?"
A fifth said: "“Hang on who’s Steven? WTF mindblown"
The mysterious voice belongs to Steve Mail, who is Lee’s partner of 26 years and who flew over from his home in Cyprus six weeks ago after not seeing his husband for over a month.
Lee had shared a photo of the pair of them with Jenny, writing: "So happy the better half is here from Cyprus now that’s a happy Friday."
“You couldn’t cook that," Lee told Jenny. “You couldn’t even get the f**king crisp on the chicken the other day.”
Jenny hit back: “On the roasties?"
"It was soggy. There was no crisp on that chicken, I’ll tell you, it was soggy," Lee replied..
“No it wasn’t,” Jenny insisted as Lee turned to his partner Steven.
“Steven, was the chicken crispy on Sunday,” he shouted to a person off-camera, to which Steven replied: “No.”
Furious Jenny demanded: "What do you mean no? It was!"
“Well, no it wasn’t really,” Steven said as Lee burst into laughter.
Jenny wasn’t convinced: “What do you mean? It’s because I put it on the top when I took it out, maybe.”
“Now she’s changing it,” Lee remarked as Steven added: “I mean, it wasn’t crispy.”
Jenny hit back: “Well, I ain’t doing it no more. You can f**k off. Go back in there. Go read your book.”
