Gogglebox Lee in stitches as Jenny attempts to cook crispy chicken

Jenny and Lee have been up to their usual funny antics as they spent some time away from filming on Sunday evening.

The Gogglebox duo, who have bubbled together throughout lockdown for filming the Channel Four show, have spent their last few Sunday’s watching Line of Duty.

But, as series six is now finished, they decided to enjoy some time together, by enjoying a chicken dinner.

Lee shared a hilarious video on the pair’s Instagram where he said Jenny “failed again” to cook the chicken correctly.

Jenny appeared distressed as she attempted to make the chicken crispy.

Lee showed Jenny poking at two cooked chickens and questioning whether she had done it correctly.

Jenny said: “Is this chicken cooked enough?”

Lee said: “It better be because it wasn’t crispy last time. Why have you done two chickens?”

Jenny said in distress: “Because I thought if one isn’t the other would be.”

Lee added: “Steve come and have a look see if these chickens are crispy because it wasn’t last time.”

Jenny said: “We aren’t cooking ’em anymore this is your last time.”

Lee’s partner Steve poked them with a knife and said: “Nope they’re not crispy.”

Lee was left in hysterics and said: “Failed again.”

Fans couldn’t help but laugh along with the trio’s cooking antics.

One fan said: “Forever icons.”

Another added: “She’s well annoyed. Stick them under grill and they will crisp right up.”

A third said: “You two (and Steve) are so funny.”

A fourth continued: “You two are the best, you need your own show!”

Gogglebox continues Friday’s from 9pm on Channel Four.

Yaya Toure's letter to Pep Guardiola as he attempts to finally end feud

Yaya Toure has revealed that he wrote a letter of apology to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola after comments he made in an interview following his final season at the Eithad.

Speaking to France Football in 2018, Toure said: “I have the impression that Pep, without acknowledgment or respect, did everything to spoil my last season.

“He was cruel with me. Do you really think he could’ve been like that with Andres Iniesta? It got to the point I asked myself if it was because of my colour. I’m not the first, other Barca players asked the question too.

“He [Guardiola] insists he has no problems with black players because he is too intelligent to be caught out. But when you realise that he has problems with Africans, wherever he goes, I ask myself questions.

Yaya Toure has written a letter to Pep Guardiola to apologise for comments he made about the Manchester City manager in 2018

“He will never admit it. But the day he will line up a team in which we find five Africans, not naturalised, I promise I will send him a cake.”

Guardiola later responded in an interview with TV3, saying: “It’s a lie and he knows it. We were together for two years and now this is when he says it. He never told me face to face.”

Toure has now revealed that he sent a letter to the club apologising for his comments but he has had no response.

He told the Daily Mail : “That interview was my big, huge mistake. When you give your trust, your voice to someone, they can twist it.

“I was aware some staff were not happy. I emailed a letter to try to communicate with some important people there to apologise and say I’ve been indecent to the club but I haven’t had any feedback.

“I want peace. We don’t want this [acrimony] all the time. For the love of the fans, for the love of the club, sometimes things have to be settled the right way. I’ve been in touch with some people there.”

Alex Beresford calls out Nigel Farage after he attempts to link Bristol riots to BLM

Alex Beresford calls out Nigel Farage after he attempts to link Bristol riots to BLM
Alex Beresford, 40, was recently hailed a “hero” for his work in calling out Piers Morgan, 55, over his remarks about Meghan Markle, which saw the outspoken presenter storm off set. Now, Alex has used his position to take aim at another controversial public figure, Nigel Farage, after he appeared to link the riots in Bristol over the weekend to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Thousands took to the streets over the weekend to protest against plans to give police increased powers to shut down peaceful protests.

The peaceful demonstration soon turned ugly as protesters began to throw missiles at officers and many began to condemn the violence on social media.

Piers joined the condemnation by calling the scenes in Bristol “disgusting”, but Farage went a step further and appeared to link the riots to another issue.

“In Bristol tonight we see what the soft-headed approach to the anti-police BLM leads to,” he wrote to his 1.6m followers, referring to the Black Lives Matter protests last summer following the death of George Floyd in America.

Many fans seemed to agree, taking to the comments section to also share their confusion with many slamming him for being “racist”.

Others however, wondered if the same extreme activists who incited the violence at the peaceful BLM demonstrations last year were also in attendance this time around, with the sole purpose of causing trouble.

Farage has since followed up on his original post, explaining in a separate tweet: “The BLM protests were anti-police, it is a key goal of the organisation. The worrying events in Bristol tonight are an extension of that. We have given into and encouraged the extreme left, and this is the result.”

Express.co.uk have approached his reps for comment.

Following the scenes in Bristol, Mayor Marvin Rees condemned the protest.

He said: “The violence and damage that have emerged from today’s protests are unacceptable and have nothing to do with the real work we are doing to tackle political, economic and social inequality.

“I recognise the frustrations with the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill. I have major concerns about the Bill myself, which is poorly thought-out and could impose disproportionate controls on free expression and the right to peaceful protest.

“It also misses as much as it includes, such as measures that could reduce violence against women and girls. We will raise our concerns. Smashing buildings in our city centre, vandalising vehicles, attacking our police will do nothing to lessen the likelihood of the Bill going through. On the contrary, the lawlessness on show will be used as evidence and promote the need for the Bill.

“This is a shameful day in an incredible year for Bristol. We have faced times of great confrontation particularly surrounding Black Lives Matter and the events that followed. We have had numerous protests.

“Our police, city representatives and I have been able to point out with pride that we have faced these moment of conflict without the physical conflict that others have experienced.

“Those who decided to turn today’s protest into a physical confrontation and smash our city have robbed us of this”.

It’s not the first time the former Brexit Party leader has been accused of being racist towards the BLM movement.

Earlier this year, he previoiusly tweeted his views on the organisation, saying: “Does @SadiqKhan not understand that BLM is an extremist, Marxist organisation that now wants to become a political party? Perhaps he will join as a member.”

Last year, he was called out once before for claiming a peaceful protest of hundreds of people who had gathered in Brixton to commemorate the passing of the 1833 Abolition of Slavery Act was “terrifying,” likening protesters to a “paramilitary-like force.”

“This is what the BLM movement wanted from the start and it will divide our society like never before,” he said on social media, which was challenged by local MPs in attendance.

While Jason is yet to speak out if the unknown account user responded to his message, his fans, like Jason, saw the funny side and attempted to make light of a potentially scary situation.

“Love the one that says he’s in Arizona with a Greggs reflected behind him,” alongside a laughing emoji, referring to a picture posted to the account of Jason and a man sitting outside the bakery.

A second added: “This guy has actually made me laugh more than you do! That is no easy task!”

Another sighed: “I really don’t think Urmston Town Centre has ever been mistaken for Phoenix, Arizona.”
