Channel 4 Gogglebox's Jenny Newby gushes over River Mersey trip

Jenny Newby gushed over a trip across the River Mersey on tonight's Gogglebox.

The Channel 4 show showed the Goggleboxers watching Race Across the World. The BBC programme sees travellers compete in a frenetic race across the world, choosing any route they like - but no flights or phones are allowed. One couple competing tried to get to Tlell - an Island that was only accessible by ferry three times a week.

Jenny said: "Oh so you've got to get the ferry at the right time haven't you?" Reminiscing on a time when she tried to cross the River Mersey, she added: "Have you ever been on the one at Liverpool? To Birkenhead?

"I've been on that. It's good. All it played was Gerry and the Pacemakers from start to finish. Ferry Cross the Mersey." Lee burst out laughing as he asked: "Does it?" She rolled her eyes and said: "Yeah!" as Lee was in stitches.

Jenny, who is normally seen in her caravan in Hull, is no stranger to Merseyside as she's been spotted in a handful of the city's clubs and stores since finding fame with her most recent visit resulting in a glow-up. In December last year, Gogglebox fan Steve Brown bumped into Jenny and Lee while in Liverpool for work.

He was staying at the Adelphi hotel, and it turned out, so were they. Describing the best friends, the fan said: "They were even nicer than you would expect, just so, so lovely."
