Gogglebox’s June Bernicoff dies aged 82

Gogglebox favourite June Bernicoff has sadly died at the age of 82.

June Bernicoff has sadly died, Gogglebox’s Executive Producer, Tania Alexander, announced on Friday.

The statement read: “We are deeply saddened to announce that Gogglebox’s much-loved June Bernicoff passed away at the age of 82 on May 5 at home with her family by her side after a short illness.

“As the first couple to be cast for Gogglebox back in 2013, June and her husband Leon were a huge part of the programme‘s success.

“Their warmth, wit and contrasting personalities endeared them to the nation during the course of the first 10 series.”

“June will be dearly missed by the entire Gogglebox family, cast and crew. Despite her departure from the show in 2017, she remained a passionate supporter of the programme, watching it every week, and she was in regular contact with the production team.

“Our thoughts are with June’s family – Helen and Ian, Julie and Marc, and her beloved grandchildren Frances, Sam and Faye.

They continued: “The family would like to ask for privacy at this sad time, but would like to thank the hospice staff that supported them and cared for June so wonderfully and with such compassion in her final weeks.”

Adding: “June’s death was not related to Covid-19.”
