Gogglebox star Jay Makin has revealed his future on the show is in jeopardy, after his girlfriend Eve Woerdenweber broke up with him.

The 22-year-old has become a household name, following his silent appearances alongside Eve and her parents Viv and Ralf over the past four series of the Channel 4 show.

"I'm gutted that Eve broke up with me. It came completely out of the blue," he told The Sun.

"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 said she couldn't cope with it. She called after a big argument and said she didn't want to go out with me any more."

Jay has had to move out of the family home in Wirral, Merseyside, following the split from the 20-year-old tattoo artist, despite the fifth series of the show still filming.

"It's going to be super-awkward to film. But the producers told us we would have to muddle through until the end of the series," he admitted.
