Gogglebox star Lee revealed that his Channel 4 partner Jenny is currently in hospital having an operation.
Speaking to Daily Star on the red carpet, Lee revealed that his best friend "isn't very well" and needed to head into hospital for an operation.
He said: "She is not very well, she is having an operation, a mini one, but she is recovering well though.
"She was invited but the appointment was in BAFTA week.
"You can't turn down an NHS operation down can you? But she is doing well."
This comes after fans were left concerned over the pair as they were missing from the latest episode of the new series.
Lee and Jenny normally film from Lee's caravan in Sand le Mere on the East Yorkshire coast, but they were nowhere to be seen.
Fans rushed to social media to ask where the pair were, with many missing their hilarious exchanges and witty one liners.
One said: "I do love this show, but it's just not the same without Lee and Jenny."
Another added: "Missing my favourites jenny and lee."
A third chipped in: "No Jenny and Lee so far."
A fourth asked: "Where's Lee and Jenny?"
Their absence wasn't explained to viewers, but it seems their break may be down to Jenny's health woes, but they look certain to be back on screens soon.
Meanwhile, Lee revealed that he briefly travelled back to his home in Cyprus that he shares with his partner Steve for a short break.
He shared a sweet snap with his partner with their arms around each other as he wrote: "Love being home if only a short visit to see your loved one."
He and Steve have been together for a whopping 26 years, with Lee splitting his time between his sunny holiday home and his caravan.
Meanwhile, Jenny is also happily married to husband Ryan.
Gogglebox airs Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.
