He spoke for just one second.

Posted on

This is the Woerdenweber family on Gogglebox. When you see them, you know that something is missing.

It just looks so empty.

It just looks so empty.

Of course Jay used to sit here. Wonderful Jay.

His appeal being that he never talked. And the exhilaration that he one day might.

His appeal being that he never talked. And the exhilaration that he one day might.

Of course, we all knew that Jay is no longer on the show because he broke up with his girlfriend.

The producers even tried to keep him on the sofa when they broke up, which made you uncomfortable once you realised they weren't brother and sister.

But as well as thinking about all of the times that he didn't speak, we need to talk about that single one time that he did. It was magical.

It took place during the X Factor final last year, when the final three singers were about to find out who made the final two. It was reasonably exciting.

Don't worry that this article is talking about X Factor. It'll end in a second.

Back with Jay, the Woerdenwebers were backing a finalist called Andrea, saying his name over and over.

This couldn't be the moment, could it?

Even Silent Jay couldn't believe it.

It was a word that is etched in our mind. Will always be in our hearts. A word we will hear in the whispers of the winds and in the waves of the oceans in our dreams.

It was a word that is etched in our mind. Will always be in our hearts. A word we will hear in the whispers of the winds and in the waves of the oceans in our dreams.

And what is that word?
