The pair are clearly remaining solid friends, as a wholesome Instagram post on Sunday (21 April) showed the two playing around on bikes in Brighton, with the caption “riding tandem straight out of this marriage”.

The couple announced they were leaving Gogglebox in 2023 in order to “explore other opportunities”.

Stephen was part of the award-winning show for ten years, since its first series in 2013. He originally starred in the series alongside his ex-boyfriend Chris Ashby-Steed, who left the show in 2018. He was then joined by his mum, Pat Webb, who sadly died after a long illness in January, before Daniel joined him on the sofa.

“After careful consideration, Daniel and I have decided we will not be returning for the new series of Gogglebox,” Stephen said in a statement last year.

“We feel the time is right to move on and explore other opportunities. We would both like to thank Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for letting us be part of this amazing, funny and heart-warming show.”

Gogglebox continues this Friday (26 April) at 9pm on Channel 4.
