Gogglebox star George Gilbey has died at the age of 40. The reality TV star – who starred in Celebrity Big Brother and Channel 4’s Gogglebox – is believed to have passed away on Wednesday afternoon. Former Georgie Shore star Ricci Guarnaccio was one of the first to pay tribute to George, sharing a collection of pictures of himself and George on social media, reports the Mirror. He captioned the pictures on Twitter (X): “Breaks my [heart] but @georgegilbey you are well and truely going to be missed my friend. Always lit up the room, cared for others & the memories we made I’ll cherish for ever brother. From CBB to speaking to you last week, I’m going to hugely miss you ma boiii! Love you G.” Ricci’s tribute to George on social media sparked some confusion, with many Instagram users noting George’s account was posting on Instagram Stories minutes on from Ricci announcing his death. Clarifying things on Twitter, Ricci wrote: “Spoke with his sister, happened early of hours of this morning. Accidental death. They don’t know who it is posting on his socials.” George was famed for his time on the sofa with his mum and step-dad on Gogglebox. He became a fan favourite when he joined the Channel 4 show in its second series in 2013. The family from Essex left the show in 2014, with George entering the Celebrity Big Brother house that same year – reaching the final. In 2016, George, along with Linda and Pete McGarry, returned to Gogglebox, much to the delight of many telly viewers. Get the latest celebrity gossip and telly news sent straight to your inbox.
