Gogglebox June to pen late Leon’s life for Blink

June Bernicoff, star of Channel 4’s reality TV show “Gogglebox”, is writing a celebration of her late husband Leon’s life for Blink Publishing.

Editorial director Kelly Ellis bought world rights from Harriet Manby at Studio Lambert.

Former teacher Leon, who was known for his sharp wit, died in December, aged 83, after a short illness. Bernicoff said: “Leon often said he’d like to write our story. So now I can do it for him.”
