Let’s not lie, we all absolutely love watching Gogglebox – there is weirdly nothing better than watching people on TV watch TV, but sadly one of our telly faves is soon to be no more. WAH.
Jay Makin, who has a bit of a reputation for sitting in complete and utter silence in every single episode, has split from his girlfriend, Eve Woerdenweber and is absolutely “gutted” about it.
Yes, you heard right, the 22-year-old has spoken publicly for the very first time, and he’s actually rather chatty when you get down to the nitty gritty.
Speaking to The Sun, the rocker revealed that the break up was initiated by Eve, sharing: “I’m gutted that Eve broke up with me. It came completely out of the blue.
“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 couldn’t cope with it.
“She called after a big argument and said she didn’t want to go out with me anymore. 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.”
OMG deleted from Facebook?! This is blimmin’ serious!
Despite the split, poor old Jay is being forced to carry on sitting in his spot on the Woerdenweber alongside his ex, her mum, and her stepdad, with Channel 4 insisting that he continues filming the show until the series ends.
The star shared: “It’s going to be super awkward to film.
“The producers told us we would have to muddle through until the end of the series. They say they’ll try to make everything as painless as possible.
“The running joke is that I never say anything – so they say it won’t be a problem.
“It is such a shame. I wish we could work it out. I’m having to pretend to be happy families. They’ve even said they want us for the next series. I don’t know how that’s going to work out.”
Eek, don’t leave us silent Jay – surely you two lovebirds can work it out?
Eve herself confirmed that the relationship had ended, saying: “We’ve broken up. It will be difficult to film, but we just have to get on with it.”
Errr… Maybe not then.
Here’s hoping that this doesn’t turn into some kind of Gogglebox curse – if posh Steph and Dom call time on their romance we don’t think that we would be able to get over it…
