Eve Woerdenweber is now dating film and TV production student Josh Smith after splitting from her 'Gogglebox' co-star Jay Makin
'Gogglebox' star Eve Woerdenweber has moved on from Jay Makin.
The 20-year-old regular on the Channel 4 show - who split from her 22-year-old co-star earlier this month - is believed to be dating student Josh Smith after changing her status to "in a relationship" and sharing a cute photograph of the couple on Facebook.
Eve asked Jay to move out of her family's home - where they film 'Gogglebox' together with her parents - earlier this month, leaving him "hurt" and "gutted".
He said: "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 anymore.
"Eve said she still wants to be friends but hasn't spoken to me and has deleted me on Facebook. It really hurts, we were so close."
However, producers of the show have encouraged Jay to continue filming the current series until it ends in May and although he thinks it will "be super awkward", he has agreed.
He explained: "It's going to be super awkward to film.
"But the producers told us we would have to muddle through until the end of the series.
"They say they'll try to make everything as painless as possible.
"The running joke is that I never say anything - so they say it won't be a problem.
"It is such a shame. I wish we could work it out. I'm having to pretend to be happy families.
"They've even said they want us for the next series. I don't know how that's going to work out."
Eve also confirmed the couple have ended their relationship saying: "We've broken up. It will be difficult to film, but we just have to get on with it."
While Channel 4 said: "Eve and Jay have split amicably. They've remained very good friends and will continue to film together."
