Di had been on the popular reality program with her husband Mick since its first season in 2015.

A friend of the family said Di chose not to tell anyone about her declining health
FOXTEL, Network 10, and Endemol Shine Australia released the following statement: “We are unbelievably saddened to hear of the passing of Di Kershaw. For the past eight years we were privileged to have her luminescent character make us chuckle with her sardonic wit, crackling laugh and her impeccable style on Gogglebox.
“From everyone at FOXTEL, Network 10, and Endemol Shine Australia we extend our condolences and love to husband Mick and the rest of the family. Thank you for letting us share the warmth, humour and heart of your wife, mother, and grandmother.
