The series has recently been under fire after a former Gogglebox employee said that it was the "worst job" they have took on. Speaking to The Guardian, they said: "People have had enough. You don't turn up to work to be screamed at for 12 hours a day. It was the worst job I ever did. The way that it's made is inhumane at times."
