TV host Kerri-Anne Kennerley has this morning announced that her husband, John Kennerley, had passed away.
In an Instagram post, Kennerly said: “It’s with a heavy heart and awful sadness that I let you know that my beautiful husband John passed away last night.”
Kennerley had been in poor health and was left a quadriplegic after a freak fall in 2016.
The couple had been married since 1984.
“As you all know, John has faced some tremendous challenges over the past few years and with each he has been extraordinarily brave and determined to overcome those hurdles and live a normal life,” Kennerley said in her post.
“I want to thank everyone at St Vincent’s Hospital for the beautiful care they have provided to John in his last days.
“John passed away peacefully with his son Simon and me by his side.
“John, you were the love of my life,” she wrote.
In a statement to media this morning, 10 CEO Paul Anderson added: “We would like to offer our deepest sympathies to Kerri-Anne Kennerley and John’s son Simon on the passing of their beloved husband and father John Kennerley.
“John faced some enormous challenges over the last few years and during this time, Kerri-Anne, in her usual grace and stamina, has shown enormous strength, compassion, love and commitment.
“Our thoughts are with Kerri-Anne, Simon and their family during this difficult time.”
