Beloved former Gogglebox star June Bernicoff has thanked fans for their tributes on the first anniversary of husband Leon’s death.
Her partner of more than six decades years passed away on December 23 last year at the age of 83.
"Thank you to all you lovely people who sent messages today, remembering Leon. It is so comforting to know how much he was loved. Thank you!" the 81-year-old wrote on Twitter after reading viewers’ kind comments.

I know Leon will be with you in spirit, bless him.
Leon was a big character and adored star of Gogglebox, and if June was in any doubt how much he meant to fans, their words will have fixed that...
Merry Christmas lovely June, 🌲 🎅 I hope you have a wonderful day, I know Leon will be with you in spirit, Bless him, I’ll raise a glass to you both, you’ll be in my thoughts, you’re a very special lady, sending much love and peace to you always xx😘 💔

June decided she wouldn't return to Gogglebox after losing Leon; we miss them very much.
