Roque, Silvio Santos’ stage assistant, poses next to his wife after hospitalization


Gonçalo Roque, 87, auditorium director at SBT and partner of presenter Silvio Santos for 50 years, posed with his wife, Janilda Nogueira, this Tuesday (21). He was hospitalized last Saturday night (18) after fainting in a restaurant in the south of São Paulo and suffering intracranial bleeding.

On social media, Janilda published photos alongside her husband and thanked her followers for their support: “I want to thank all friends, family, colleagues, Roque fans for their prayers.” “I want you to forgive me for those who I haven’t been able to respond to yet, as there are many messages and I can’t respond for now, as half of my time I’m there next to Roque, holding his hand”, she added.

According to a medical bulletin sent by the hospital last Monday (20), the professional is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and has no apparent neurological deficits.

It is not the first time that Roque has been hospitalized. In 2017, the director was hospitalized to treat head problems, especially after hydrocephalus was detected.

Roque has worked with Silvio Santos since the 1970s and is, officially, the first employee of SBT, where he works to this day organizing the public to participate in auditorium programs.

Especially in the 1990s, Roque became famous for frequently appearing in the video during the famous program Topa Tudo por Dinheiro (1991-2001). Roque was also a politician and became a councilor in the city of Carapicuíba (SP) for three terms.
