BREAKING NEWS coming out of the Gogglebox camp today as the silent lad from the hit Channel 4 show reveals he’s been dumped by his girlfriend, Eve.
The 22-year-old – real name Jay – became an internet legend in 2014 after his silence during every single episode of the show frustrated millions of viewers. But now, he has even more reason to keep schtum after revealing that he’s been dumped.
The poor lad still has to appear on the show though, sitting next to his ex, who ended their relationship with him ‘completely out of the blue’.
Speaking to The Sun, he said:
We had a few problems and started drifting apart but I thought it was down to the pressure of the show and her business. We argued too much and she said couldn’t cope with it.
She called after a big argument and said she didn’t want to go out with me any more. Eve said she still wants to be friends but hasn’t spoken to me and has deleted me on Facebook. It really hurts, we were so close.
Jay went on to explain how filming will now be ‘super awkward’ as he has to play ‘happy families’ with them, but I can’t see it being anymore awkward than it usually is.
I need to get out more.
