Gogglebox: 'It's deeply affecting me' Lee and Keith share news about their life in lockdown

Loveable Goggleboxers Lee and Keith are always the first to give us a giggle, but this Easter they admit they have found life hard. 

Like all of us, Lee and Keith are social-distancing so they're apart from their family right now, and although they're doing what's right amid the coronavirus pandemic, it isn't easy.

Speaking to LifeStyle, Keith says he's worried about Lee because of her long-standing health condition.

"These days, I tell Lee to stay home because she has diabetes and is high risk," he explains. "So I do all the shopping  to help out."

This also means they can't see their beloved three-month-old granddaughter, Riley.

"I'm not going well. I really miss her. My son and daughter-in-law send us videos, but it just makes us want to see her more," Lee explains.

"She's getting so big and I'm missing out on it. She's rolling over now and she's only 12 weeks! She's a clever little thing, it's unbelievable."

Keith is also concerned because he hasn't seen his only daughter, Shannon, for a while.

"She lives out of home so we only see her on the phone," he explains. "But we can't go over there and she can't come over here. So that's been hard. She's allowed to go see her boyfriend, but she can't see her parents."

The couple are now scheduling in video calls in a bid to ensure their loved ones are doing well.

"We're just following what's being told to us. We haven't seen our son, our daughter-in-law, our granddaughter. So we're on FaceTime every day to see each other," Lee explains.

"I just...I don't know, how I can put it into words? I just really really miss Riley in particular. It's good that I can see her on FaceTime, but I want to hug her. I don't want her to forget about us or not know us.

"I just wish everyone would stay home," she adds."Because the more we do that, the sooner it's over and we can be with our loved ones again. It's deeply affecting me."

Despite this, Lee and Keith are still grateful and reveal they're keeping healthcare workers in their thoughts during this pandemic.



Thank you ??

 "It's like a bad dream. It really is. I want to wake up and know that everyone's alright and there's no such thing as coronavirus, or we have a treatment.

"It just gets me down. I feel so sorry for the nurses, doctors and people on the frontline. They're doing their best. I just wish everyone would help them out, because we can't be clogging up the hospitals. It's just ridiculous - stay home!"

We couldn't have said it better ourselves! Sending love to Lee and Keith during this trying time and hopefully it won't be too long before they're reunited with baby Riley.
