Since the pair have still been seen filming together amid lockdown, viewers of the show took to social media to ask if the pair were conforming to social distancing rules.
Since lockdown Gogglebox is also said to have received 20 Ofcom complaints that the pair were not socially distancing.
In order for the pair to keep filming together, they chose to self isolate in Jenny’s caravan at Sand le Mere.
Lee took to Twitter to clear up the confusion of where he was living.

He tweeted: “Thank you for all the lovely tweets and love from you all makes it all worthwhile isolating with Jenny JOKING.
“Hope you enjoyed the show big thanks to the crew, the cast, stay safe stay healthy stay in #Gogglebox goodnight goggleboxers.”
Lee and Jenny met more than 20 years ago when the pair bonded after Lee became a regular at a pub where Jenny was the landlady.
Since then the pair have stayed close, with the duo filming each week in Jenny’s caravan which has become one of the iconic living rooms Gogglebox takes us to each week.
Instead of allowing a camera crew into their homes, they will have stationary cameras to limit contact with production staff.
Speaking of this change Ian Katz, Channel 4’s director of programming, said: “The coronavirus outbreak is an enormous creative challenge for all broadcasters, and though it is having a profound impact on getting some of our productions onto screen.
“It’s also a time when public service broadcasters like Channel 4 can step up and help people navigate through the extraordinary challenges we all now face.”
Lee and Jenny are not the only Gogglebox favourites that have been questioned for filming together.
Sister Izzi and Ellie were also called out on social media for not following social distancing guidelines.
Ofcom reported receiving 163 complaints about the pair still filming together accusing the pair of breaking lockdown restrictions.
Ellie’s boyfriend Nat took the place for Izzi for two weeks, but she was seen to return on Friday, April 17 with the pair sitting at a distance on separate sofas.
In response to the backlash Channel 4 released a statement that said: “Most of the families live together, but where they don’t, they are complying with PHE [Public Health England] social distancing guidelines.
“Gogglebox will only film with families where it’s safe to do so. The health and safety of our cast and crew is paramount.”
