June and Leon were among viewers’ favourites throughout their time on Gogglebox, which saw them passing commentary on the week’s TV in their own unique style.
“I don’t watch much TV these days, if I’m honest,” she told The Mirror. “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. I find myself getting up to make a lot of cups of tea and I can’t settle.”
However, she insisted she doesn’t find it too hard living in the house they once shared, as it’s filled with so many happy memories that she feels like he’s still there.
She continued: “People talk about how difficult it is coming into an empty house.
“But it’s funny, I never really feel the house is empty somehow. Leon was such a large figure… I can hear him saying things like, ‘Why have you got this nonsense on?’ when I’m listening to Classic FM.”
June added: “It’s strange going out on my own, though, and things like driving the car are hard, because he always wanted to be behind the wheel.”
When Gogglebox returned shortly after Leon’s death, Channel 4 aired a special tribute to him at the end of the episode, while the show’s cast later dedicated their NTAs win to his memory.
