Angie Kent, who co-starred on on the show between 2015-2018, shared how ‘devastated’ she was by the news. 

Describing the sharp-tongued Di as a ‘fire cracker’, Angie told her followers the star was a ‘big loss’.

The former Bachelorette star copped a withering serve from Di after she embarked on a reality TV career.

Di, a former model-turned-Indigenous art dealer, had been on the Channel 10-Foxtel show with her husband Mick since its first season in 2015.

She is survived by Mick, their adult children Victoria and Alex, and young grandson Harvey.

Doctors reportedly discovered a tumour in her throat several months ago and it was found to be inoperable.

A friend of the Kershaw’s said Di chose not to tell anyone about her declining health. 

Di was known for her dry sense of humour on Gogglebox, and would often come out with a severe slap down while reacting to dating shows.

She famously did not think much of fellow couch critic Angie Kent embarking on a reality TV career.

‘She was on Gogglebox, then went to the jungle, then she became the Bachelorette, and now she’s a dancing star… Spare me. She’s no dancer, that’s for sure,’ she once said.
