How much do the celebrities get paid on Gogglebox?

Channel 4 has not confirmed how much the celebrities are earning, but reports suggest they could be making up to £2,000 per episode.

According to The Sun, this means some pairings could take home a whopping £12,000 altogether over the six episodes.

On top of this, celebs also reportedly get an ‘all-expenses budget’ for food to enjoy while chilling in front of the TV.

Meanwhile, Channel 4 has also never confirmed how much the non-celebrity Gogglebox families get paid.

However, an insider previously told The Sun that each family get a monthly allowance of £1,500 between them.

This is then split between the stars however they sit fit.

As well as that, the families - such as Giles and Mary, The Malones and Jenny and Lee - are also said to be provided with a free takeaway of their choice while they’re watching TV.

During periods of filming, the families are expected to commit to 12 hours of filming a week across two six-hour shifts.

This means most of them film in between working full time or part time jobs.
