Gogglebox's favourite June Bernicoff has announced the bittersweet news that she was leaving Liverpool after 62 years living in the area.
Taking to the Twitter account which she once shared with husband Leon Bernicoff, June wrote, ‘Good Bye Liverpool my home for 62years! Reluctantly leaving. Thank you Guys I’ll miss your warmth, humour and affection! Very special people’.
June had lived in her Allerton home with husband Leon, who sadly passed away in December 2017. She immediately left Gogglebox following his death, as she felt it wouldn’t be the same without him.
Many fans were quick to respond to June’s big announcement with well-wishes for her bittersweet move away from Liverpool.
One commented on how they’d frequently reference June and Leon, adding, ‘Good luck with the move June. We often still talk of you and Leon with great fondness, which is amazing for people who came into our lives on a little tv show if people watching TV 👍 “Can I have a cracker” is a much used phrase in our house 😂’.
Another added, ‘Good luck June. You leaving is a big a loss for Liverpool but a big gain for your new hometown, you have to do what’s best for you . Sending you big hugs and best wishes for your future xxx❤’
A third said, ‘Hope it goes well June. And please keep sharing your tweets! All the best in your new place!’
June has made the decision to leave Liverpool in order to be closer to her family, as confirmed in a follow-up tweet which read, ‘Thank you for all your good wishes. Yes, I am moving near my family in Warks & I’m looking forward to a new chapter in my life.’
June Bernicoff was born in South Wales, but spent a large portion of her life in Liverpool alongside husband Leon. She is one of the founding cast members of Channel 4’s Gogglebox, and has been well-loved by fans all over the country due to her sense of humour and love for her husband.
Her time on Gogglebox was loved by many, with co-stars Viv and Ralf leaving her a sweet message on Twitter too.
