THIS JUST DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT.

THIS is what looks right.

Unfortunately, he won’t be coming back. A Channel 4 spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that Jay has left the show: “It’s with great regret that Silent Jay is no longer in this series of Gogglebox. He has been an excellent contributor to Gogglebox, and we are very grateful for all he has given to the show.”

When this week's episode of Gogglebox started, many people speculated that Jay was not on the show because of a recent breakup.

The country is on a political knife edge but the whole country is asking just 1 question 'Where's Jay?' @C4Gogglebox #gogglebox #wheresjay?

Where's Jay? They should just keep cutting away to him watching telly on his own saying nothing. #gogglebox

It’s happened. Jay has decided that going round to the family house of the girl that dumped him to watch telly was a bit too much #Gogglebox

The Sun broke the story last month that Jay had broken up with his girlfriend, Eve (the person who sits to his left). He told the paper:

I'm gutted that Eve broke up with me. It came completely out of the blue. We had a few problems and started drifting apart but I thought it was down to the pressure of the show and her business. We argued too much and she said couldn't cope with it. She called after a big argument and said she didn't want to go out with me any more.

That's right. Jay and Eve aren't brother and sister.

On the plus side, at least Eve gets to stretch her legs.

Not the same, though.

Let's remember a happier time, when he was providing loads of conversation and amazing insight.

This tweet sums up the entire situation.

Gogglebox isn't the same without jay. Who would have though someone who is silent would make such an impact #gogglebox #jay
