John Bardon has died aged 75 - ozara gossip

After suffering from a stroke in 2007,  John Bardon – who has starred as Jim Branning in the BBC One soap since the 90s, has passed away at the age of 75. June has led the tributes to her on-screen husband, saying: ‘I am so sorry that John has passed away but hope that he is now at peace after seven difficult years.

‘I shall miss him very much as I loved him dearly. My thoughts are with his devoted wife, Enda.’

Having played Jim – who married Dot Cotton (June Brown) in the drama in 2002 – from 1996 to 2011, he was written out following his stroke as he required full-time care from his wife Enda.

A spokesperson for EastEnders added: ‘Everyone at EastEnders is absolutely heartbroken to hear that John has sadly passed away. His bravery, dignity and courage in battling against the devastating effects of his stroke were admired by all who had the privilege of working with him.

‘Loved by all of us, John was an exceptionally talented writer whose humour, mischievousness and brilliant performances made Jim Branning one Walford’s most loveable characters and we will miss John forever.

‘Our love and deepest sympathies are extended to Enda, his truly wonderful life, at this very sad time. May he now rest in peace. Tonight’s episode of EastEnders is dedicated to John, who will be sorely missed by all those who knew and worked with him.’
