June Bernicoff, 81, and her husband Leon Bernicoff were an instant hit on the Channel 4 show, and quickly became fan favourites on Gogglebox. The former reality star has now admitted she finds it difficult to enjoy television since her beloved husband’s death. Leon died just before Christmas in 2017, and June has not featured on the programme since then. In a candid interview with The Sun, the former school teacher revealed she “can’t settle” down to watch the TV and gets restless.
I find it difficult
She told the publication: "I don’t watch much TV these days, if I’m honest. I find it difficult.
"I’ve been reading a lot more, or listening to the radio, but I just feel restless whenever I sit down to watch it.”
She added: "I find myself getting up to make a lot of cups of tea and I can’t settle."
June recently opened up about living alone and admitted she can still hear her husband’s “witty remarks”.
The small-screen star said she still has Leon’s armchair in their leaving room, according to The Mirror.
She told the publication: "People talk about how difficult it is coming into an empty house.
