It's probably not what you were expecting.

Imagine getting paid to watch the telly. The dream, right?

Well, that’s a reality for the stars of Gogglebox but if you thought they were earning mega bucks for starring on the hit Channel 4 show then you’d be wrong.

According to a Channel 4 insider who spoke to The Sun Scarlett Moffatt and her Gogglebox co-stars earn a monthly allowance of £1,500 per family, roughly €1,700.

That amount is then split between each member of the family at their own discretion, meaning that Scarlett, who normally appears alongside her mum, dad and sister, gets about €425 a month, if the money is split equally.


It’s not as much cash as we were expecting, but for a couple of hours spent watching the box, we wouldn’t say no. Plus there are some perks to the job. Apparently each family gets a free takeaway to get them through each 6-hour stint of telly watching, so it’s not exactly a rough deal.

Hmm. Come to think of it, weren’t TV3 recently looking for new recruits for the Irish version of the show?

BRB, we think we’ve found our calling.
