Gogglebox’s Paige Deville has decided to quit the Channel 4 show.

The 24-year-old made some scathing accusations about the show in her statement.

She then claimed: “It’s been an experience but one I cannot continue with due to long hours of filming, restrictiveness, control of our actions and opinions & zero aftercare support but hey who cares about ex cast, their NTA winners [sic].”

Paige is known for appearing alongside her mum Sally, after they joined the line-up in 2019.

A Channel 4 spokesperson said in a statement to Capital FM: "The welfare of contributors – past and present – is of paramount importance and robust protocols are in place to support contributors before, during and after taking part in the series."

It’s not yet known whether Sally is planning to continue the show without her daughter.

Paige’s accusation comes after Gogglebox bosses confirmed five of the show’s stars will not be returning to the series following the tragic loss of their loved ones.

Mary Cook sadly passed away in August, so co-star and best friend Marina Wingrove won’t be returning for the new series.

The family of Andy Michael, who died following a short illness in August, have also understandably decided to step away from the show.

Linda McGarry is leaving the show after husband Pete passed away in June this year.
