Do the Gogglebox cast get paid?

Many people wonder if the cast of Gogglebox get paid, well they actually do, each family receives a monthly balance of £1,500.

The family will then have to split this amount between each other at their own discretion.

This is only the start for some cast members.

Original Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt has since appeared on I'm A Celebrity and boasts of paying off her parents' mortgage with her earnings.

Also, Sandra Martin, another star from the show, says she's earned "£100,000 every year" since appearing on the programme.

Although the opportunities seem endless after appearing on Gogglebox, the families do have to work for their money.

Despite the coronovirus pandemic filming will still take place with rigged cameras in place to prevent crew mixing with the Gogglebox stars.

Each family has to commit to 12 hours of filming each week split across two six-hour shifts.

They then need to analyse and share opinions on the programmes they have been told to watch.
