The Silberys released a statement on Instagram regarding the departure of one of their family members from the upcoming season of Gogglebox Australia.
Emmie will not be participating in the show. The family said that they have had to make difficult decisions due to their situation.
The statement revealed that Emmie has been diagnosed and is currently receiving care.
The family wanted to share this information to allow others to understand how she is doing.
The news was met with mixed emotions by their fans. Many of them expressed their concerns and grief.
The cast of the reality TV show expressed their love for Emmie and said that the show would not be the same without her.
Emmie, who is 94 years old, joined the show in 2016 with her family.
In 2022, Emmie collaborated with her daughter, Kerry, and granddaughter, Isabelle, to write a book entitled Out of the Box, which featured their wisdom from various life stages.
The family said that the show brings families together and allows them to share their experiences.
Due to Emmie’s recent diagnosis of dementia, the family has had to make various difficult decisions. Emmie has now settled into a nursing home near her granddaughter and daughter.
In July 2022, the show’s fans were also hit by another tragedy when Di Kershaw, a well-known member of the show’s cast, passed away at 76.
According to Mick, the star decided to stop her stomach cancer treatment in order to ensure that her family would not see her deteriorate.
She was 76 when she passed away. After she was diagnosed with cancer, she spent nine weeks in St. Vincent’s Hospital and the last two weeks at the local hospital, Sacred Heart Hospice.
According to Mick, the cancer had already spread, and it was considered inoperable.
Emmie did not want to spend six months in a hospital, so she decided to end her treatment earlier. In addition, Di also requested to stop using her intravenous tube.
Mick stated that one of the main factors that influenced her decision was thinking about her family. She spent her final days with them.
