Gogglebox star June Bernicoff has hinted she will not be returning to the show following the death of her husband Leon.

Viewer favourite Leon died on December 23 at the age of 83 after a short illness.

June has now sparked speculation that she will not continue on Gogglebox without him.

A fan posted a message on Twitter asking June whether she would do the show with one of her daughters.

She replied: “It was a great adventure with a great finale with the NTA”, referring to last week’s National Television Awards, where Gogglebox won the Factual Entertainment Programme gong.

June and Leon were one of the first couples to join the Channel 4 show when it launched in 2013.

After Leon died June posted a message on Twitter thanking fans for all of the touching messages she had received, saying: “Leon would have loved reading them & hearing how much he was loved. Goodnight & God Bless!”

Representatives for Gogglebox have been contacted for comment.
