Goggleboxs Marcus and Mica thank fans for support after heartbreaking tragedy

Gogglebox star Mica Luther has thanked fans for support after a family tragedy following a break from social media.

The TV star has been mourning the loss of a family member and decided to step away from the internet to grieve.

Taking back to Instagram, Mika said: "To everyone that has sent love, prayers, concern, well wishes and condolences to our family, on behalf of Marky & I we thank you.

"I Hope you all have a blessed day and remember to enjoy each other, blow the dust off them board games, catch some joke, life and memories are so precious."

Her partner Marcus also reached out to fans on the platform, saying: "As most of you may already know, I have had a bereavement in my family.

“As a result, the gym will be closed today. Both children and adult sessions are cancelled whilst my family celebrate the life of our loved one."

Fans were quick to send love and support to the pair as they flooded their posts with well-wishes.

One said: "Sending love, light healing and positive vibes back to you and your family."

A second posted: "Sending love & prayers to you all.. You’ve got this."

While a third added: "Oh sweetheart sorry your hurting big hugs and loads of love to you all."

The pair have been fan favourites ever since they made their debut on the series in 2018.

Away from our screens, Marcus is a businessman, boxing coach and gym owner. He trained his son Shiloh, who is now a professional boxer under the alias 'Sugar Shy'.

He founded TM Boxing Gym in 2009 initially to work with "disadvantaged youths from the local community".

Mica is a hairdresser specialising in natural hair and she shares her work on her Instagram page. She also owns her own salon.

In a recent interview, Marcus explained how his game plan to get to Mica backfired when she "wasn't interested."

"She was doing this thing called Alpha Course, so I signed up for it, too, but then she tried to set me up with some other girls from the course. She wasn’t interested", he told Heat Magazine.

Marcus then won Mica over with humour and before long things became romantic when he visited her at home with a bottle of wine for Bible study.

Recalling how things hotted up, Mica said: "He turned up to mine one night to do Bible study with a bottle of wine.

“We were sitting opposite each other and I’m thinking ‘Footsy? Wine? We’re supposed to be doing Bible study here!’

“He told me it was fine because Jesus drank wine."
