We're all well-acquainted with the couples that we watch week in, week out on Gogglebox, but what about the ones that play out off camera?

From new loves to a relationship spanning four decades, here are the partners that we don't see.

Tom Malone Jr and Bryony

Tom's girlfriend Bryony is a model from Leeds.

She first appeared on his Instagram account when Tom posted about the Black Lives Matter protest in Manchester.

The pair have since shared numerous snaps together, including one of Bryony in her cap and gown after she graduated from university.

Back in 2018, sisters Ellie and Izzi Warner told The Sun on the red carpet at the National Television Awards that they both have boyfriends, adding: "They're in hiding, they let us have the limelight."

Ellie's partner is called Nat, who is also from Leeds.

Nat previously filled in for Izzi on Gogglebox due to Covid restrictions.

Izzi Warner and Grant

Izzi has two children with her boyfriend Grant.

Bobby is five years old and Bessie was born back in February this year.

Baasit Siddiqui and Melissa

Baasit and Melissa have been married for eight years.

The pair have two children together, six-year-old Amelia and baby Theodore, who was born in December last year.

Sid Baasit has been married to Nasreen for almost 40 years.

The pair have two daughters and three sons.

Pete Sandiford and Paige

Pete, from Blackpool, went Instagram official with his girlfriend Paige back in October.

But they've been in a relationship for a lot longer.

"My Mrs and best mate what more could I ask for," he captioned the snap. "Don't worry @sophiesandiford1 you are a close second best friend.

"This was taken last year FYI."

According to reports, Paige has been an emergency service call handler in London for more than three years.

Sophie, Pete's sister who appears with him on Gogglebox, recently confirmed to the Metro newspaper that she's "Definitely single. Nothing really going on" after people mistook one of her work friends as her boyfriend.

Lee Riley and Steve

It's all about Lee and his best pal Jenny Newby on Gogglebox, but away from the cameras, there's another very important person in his life.

Steve and Lee have been together for 26 years.

When This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield announced that he was gay earlier this year, Steve commented on one of his tweets with an anecdote about his relationship with the reality show star.

"When I was in a similar situation many years ago my best straight mate made it so easy for me to accept who I was back then and who I am today and I have never been happier and my life changed when I met the man of my dreams @Schofe," he wrote.

"Your future will be the happiest it's ever been."

Lee replied: "And I am so glad you did. After 26 years together you've made me what I am today thank you."

Jenny Newby is married to Ray, but she has yet to share any photos of him.
