Silent Jay wasn't on Gogglebox tonight and everyone is feeling bereft


IT’S FRIDAY NIGHT and that can only mean one thing – Gogglebox!

Tonight, however, viewers’ enjoyment of the programme was marred by the conspicuous absence of one of the show’s most beloved figures.

We are, of course, talking about Silent Jay.


Out of nowhere, Jay was absent from the sofa tonight and nobody was happy.

It’s not the same without him.

Maybe if we chant his name, he’ll reappear!

People are speculating that his absence could be down to the fact that he recently broke up with his girlfriend Eve.

She seems to be taking it well anyway. Too well, if you ask us


People feel weirdly guilty for watching Gogglebox without him

Honestly. First Zayn and now this.

Just give him a spin-off show, please

Or at least let a kind family adopt him.

But wait — all might not be lost!

After the news of the break-up first emerged, Channel 4 reassured everyone that Jay wasn’t going anywhere and would continue to film with Eve’s family. Maybe this is just an off week?

We live in hope.
