GOGGLEBOX bosses are in desperate search of some new faces for the show after tragically losing three of their adored stars.
How to apply and how much you’ll get paid, we have all the info…
How can I apply for Gogglebox?
Sadly, there is no application process to apply for Gogglebox.
The TV show’s creator Stephen Lambert said in 2015: "Everybody on Gogglebox has been found and persuaded to be on the show and I think that's the key to why they are likeable and why the show works, because we get to know these people.”
"We've never advertised for people on Gogglebox."
All hope is not lost as it is rumoured that the Channel 4 scouts search the country near and far to find the best families both charismatic and dynamic for the show.
We can only predict that the execs visit local pubs and community hubs in search for the show's new stars’.
What type of people are Gogglebox bosses looking to bring in?
Executive producer, Victoria Ray is in search of family and friends who don’t “try hard” to be funny but it comes very naturally – much like the fan favourites Jenny Newby, 53 and her best friend, Lee Riley, 53.
Talking of what the show is looking for, she told The Daily Star: “We pick people who don’t want to be on telly.”
She went on to explain how they usually pick people who aren't “fame hungry” and don’t see themselves as TV personalities.
“We like people who are charismatic and engaging,” she explained.
“It’s good when they have no filter because then they don't second-guess themselves when they’re talking,”
“We basically want people that you warm to and want to see in your living rooms.”
Do you get paid to be on Gogglebox?
Whilst Channel 4 have never confirmed how much the stars’ earn, according to The Sun, each family is paid a monthly allowance of £1,500.
It’s reported that all family members split the fee at their own discretion.
Not only do they get an allowance they also get treated to a takeaway of their choice during filming.
Although it sounds easy, Goggleboxers do actually have to get the job done. Whilst they get a fee and a free takeaway, in exchange they are still expected to commit to 12 hours of filming across the week which is split into two six-hour shifts.
Gogglebox continues Friday at 9pm on Channel 4
