Her reply was a nod to the National Television Awards, when Goggleboxers dedicated their Best Factual Entertainment award to her late husband.
Fans were quick to react to June's decision.
You will be missed but it's totally understandable... he was such a great character on the show, will be missed by us all, take care of yourself x

Following Leon's passing, Channel Four and production company Studio Lambert released a statement paying tribute to him.
It read: "Leon's unique personality and sharp wit endeared him to fans of the show, as he contributed fully to Gogglebox's reputation as a programme full of warm humour and unvarnished opinion.
"To those of us that knew him personally, Leon was a man of unwavering principles who exerted a distinct paternal presence both on and off screen. He will be dearly missed by the entire Gogglebox family; cast and crew."
