Sweethearts and soulmates for 60 years, June and Leon Bernicoff had a lifetime of love and laughter together.

We fell in love with them on Gogglebox, where their warmth, cheeky gags and unending love for each other shone through our screens. When Leon sadly died at Christmas 2017, after spending every day since 1955 with his beloved June, the nation was left heartbroken. In this nostalgic, beautifully written book, June looks back at their time together, sharing treasured memories of a life truly well-lived.

She tells of their courtship as students in the 1950s - how they fought to marry despite their parents' disapproval, and just what living in 1960s Liverpool was like. Building a life together, creating a family in their loving home, Liverpool was a place Leon and June would never move from.

They experienced their fair share of highs and lows, but always got through everything together. As Leon often reminded himself: 'As long as June's here, I'm all right.'
