Gogglebox’s Jenny Newby welcomes third great grandchild

Congratulations Jenny!

Absolute Gogglebox icon, Jenny Newby, has welcomed her whopping third great grandchild into the world.

The big announcement was made on her Instagram page, which she shares with Gogglebox co-star, and best friend, Lee Riley.

The post, presumably written by Lee, read: “Congratulations Jenny on your new great granddaughter Olive-mae more babysitting duties I think xx” with laughing and heart emojis.

Jenny’s fans and Gogglebox co-stars were quick to share their well-wishes as Izzi Warner put: “Congratulations Jenny she’s absolutely adorable xx”, Ellie Warner wrote: “Congratulations Jenny and family” while Dave and Shirley Griffiths added: “Congratulations lovely girl love dave and shirley xxx.”


Back in May, Jenny’s two other great grandkids delighted fans, by joining her and Lee on the Gogglebox sofa for a quick cuddle before bedtime.

Lee, the eternal joker, couldn’t stop himself from urging the little uns to call Jenny ‘old’ and ‘wrinkly’.

Jenny’s great-granddaughter told Lee that she calls Jenny ‘grandy’ and then told Jenny that it was her hair and glasses that made her ‘old’. Lee then joked: “And her wrinkly skin.”

Fans were absolutely over the moon to see the kids, with one taking to Twitter to write: “Oh how cute are Jenny’s grandchildren! #gogglebox,” wrote one fan while another added: “Jenny is a great grandma? Never! She looks far too young. #Gogglebox.”

Congratulations of the latest great grandchild Jenny.
