Gogglebox's Lee Riley and Jenny Newby have been firm fan favourites for a long time on the Channel 4 show.
And on Friday's instalment of the series, the pair of pals were joined by Lee's partner, Steven, as they watched clips in Lee's mobile home.
Steven's appearance surprised viewers as he was not sat with Jenny and Lee on the sofa but piped up when Lee asked him for his opinion on a recent Sunday roast Jenny had cooked.
The chat came up as they ogled Nigella Lawson making a fried chicken sandwich on the telly and they all marvelled at the way the famous chef loves to seductively eat when showcasing her cooking skills.

After the segment, Lee criticised Jenny's kitchen skills by making a jibe that the chicken she had recently cooked was not crispy but soggy.
Jenny screwed up her face at the review of her cooking and started to grow angry – which led to Lee seeking back-up.
Viewers then heard Lee ask Steven whether the chicken was crispy, which led to Jenny getting angrier as Steven confirmed off-camera that the chicken was not crispy.
