has sadly died today, after a short illness. He and June have been together since 1955, she will miss him dreadfully.

Rest in peace, Leon. Life's work more than well done as a teacher and a big part of gogglebox, you have been immortalised in that programme.

My thoughts to June, and Leon's family and friends

Oh no, how very sad.

I love "Gogglebox"......and i love June and Leon.

How very sad for Leon's family....especially at this time of the year.

Heartfelt thoughts to Leon's family and friends.

RIP Leon. You and June were favourites of mine. Loved the episode where he couldn't get the lights on his Christmas jumper to switch off. His response "oh, f...k 'em". Also when he was eating the sweets from a tin he was meant to be wrapping up as a present for someone. He and June seemed really at ease with each other. She will miss him a lot.

Condolences to his family and friends.

June and his family will miss him terribly

Very sad just before Christmas

RIP Leon
