How much does the Gogglebox cast earn and get paid?

According to a tabloid, the stars of Gogglebox aren’t given a salary for their stint on the show but are instead paid £1,500 a month.

The sum is reportedly given to them for watching 12 hours of TV per week, which is spread over two six-hour shifts.

The cast juggles the hours outside of their part or full-time jobs.

Apparently it’s down to the families to decide how they split the money between them.
