Gogglebox's Lee and Keith reveal a new health scare to fans - with an important message

The Victorian couple took to social media to reveal a worrying health scare.

They're the Gogglebox couple we love to watch bicker and laugh together on their couch, but Keith and Lee's lives took a serious turn this week when Keith posted a video online, that immediately got fans talking. 

Standing outside the Victorian Gut Centre, Keith revealed that Lee had undergone some medical tests.

"She's had a bit of a scare, but she's ok now," he revealed

"Please everyone get checked if not for you, do it for your family," the post read.

While it's not clear in the video which test Lee underwent, fans on Instagram were quick to praise them for raising awareness for all bowel conditions including bowel cancer, Ulcerative Colitis and various other conditions.

The council worker then reveals that Lee's visit to the Gut Centre prompted him to get checked, before delivering a poignant message:

"I'm on the way in now. Everyone, go get checked up," he says. "Every three years. One up ya caper, one down your throat - make sure you do it."

Followers of the couple were deeply moved by Keith promoting the issue, and took to social media to share their heartfelt messages:

"Hopefully your all good Lee, thank goodness your dr sent you. Hope Keith is ok as well. Thank you for helping get the word out there about the importance of all our check ups. Big hug to you both x," one person shared.

Following his check up, the couple of 34 years posted another video of Keith walking out of the clinic, revealing his good news with a thumbs up:

"All ok, just walking a bit funny," Keith joked. "All ok."

"Great to talk about it and help people to know it’s okay to talk about it and get check ups!" said one user. "Good wishes to you both."
