It sounds like the Channel 4 series, which sees the celebs settle down to watch the most talked-about television of the week, is one of the best gigs around! A TV insider told The Sun that it is an "absolute coup" for most stars, and revealed that the stars reportedly received £2,000 per episode, along with expenses paid for all of their food and drink. Not too bad!

So are the celebrity Goggleboxers paid more than the non-famous families who feature on the show? According to The Sun, they have a considerable pay rise in comparison, as the usual series regulars receive £1,500 a month per family to star on the show, which is usually done in two six-hour shifts of watching telly.
