Stalwarts Gogglebox Lee Riley and Jenny Newby wowed fans with a snapshot back from 16 years ago.
Best friends – who appear in the series while criticizing television of the week from Lee’s caravan in Hull – are seen returning on a cruise in 2004.
The pair look very different in the blink of an eye – with Jenny and Lee sporting dark brown locks (these days, they still have some grays) as they laugh happily at the photo.

The photo looks a bit like a wedding – with Jenny holding a bouquet of poses.
Lee was sure to let the fans know that this was not a photo of them tying the knot.
“Old photo 16 years ago of me and Jenny on a cruise taking the p ** s and not before asking you, we did not get married!” Lee captioned the shot.
This is the second flashback they have shared since joining Instagram in March.

This follows the announcement that Gogglebox favorites Mary and Marina were forced to stop filming the episodes as the bosses tried to protect them from the current pandemic.
The two elderly people are locked up in their homes in the retirement village of St Monica Trust in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol.
And although they are fan favorites, best friends, both of whom are in the 90s, have been off the air.

The show’s creator Tania Alexander said the producers decided to stop filming with Mary and Marina to reduce their risk of infection.
Writing in The Telegraph, she said, “Unfortunately, it was not possible to film with the full cast.
“For example, we made the decision to tell Mary and Marina, who are about 90 years old and live in a care home, that we didn’t want them to be endangered, so we have to stop filming with them . “

In good health: the pair is “safe and well maintained” but disappointed not to be present in the series
The popular pair is still healthy but disappointed to miss the show, Tania revealed.
She said, “The ladies are safe and well-groomed, but often tell us that they miss the teams and the fun they have a lot during filming every week. “
Some fans were worried about their absence this season but the bosses have reassured fans that they are safe.
This comes after the Channel 4 show was the subject of complaints, as many feared that its stars would not isolate themselves from each other.
Abiding by the rules: The Malone family assured fans earlier this month that they were following social distancing guidelines
At the time, a Channel 4 representative told MailOnline: “Most families live together, but where they don’t, they follow PES guidelines on social distance.
“Gogglebox will only film with families where it is safe. The health and safety of our actors and our team are paramount. “
Under current guidelines, Britons are advised not to visit family members who live outside their homes in order to slow the spread of the virus.
The official board of Public Health England says, “Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Stay in touch using remote technologies like phone, internet and social media. “
