How much do you think they get paid? My friend says reality tv people don't usually get paid anything. This seems different though. Thanks

If you google it, you find it is £15 a night!!!!!!

Outrageous. That is not minimum or living wage. It will barely buy Dom a bottle of plonk, or Scarlet a spray tan!

They don't do it for a living though do they? I'm surprised they get paid at all, being on the tv and becoming 'semi' famous would be enough for most people.

Steph and Dom and Chris+ other hairdresser cant remember his name have both got other work from it.

I had read that they get something like a £50 fee per week (not sure if that is each or per family/couple) All the programmes get shown to them in one night and they need to change their clothes for every programme they watch. The vicar obviously changes her tea cosy too!

They also receive a take away of their choice.

Wish I could find the link to the article.

In series one, they were given food and drink, and £15 per night. For series 2, they got offered set payment for the series - the lowest was £600 for one individual, but the highest was "a few times that, at least".

I bet they all get free sofaworks sofas.

How do I apply to be filmed sitting on my own talking to no one and providing no entertainment value whatsoever?

Rollermum Wed 21-Oct-15 17:54:13

Funny they have to change clothes. That is the opposite of GBBO where they seem to make them wear the same clothes for both days. Why? We know if is day two. Or is that a lie?

OnlyHereForTheCamping Wed 21-Oct-15 17:55:31

Some of the sofas are eyewateringly bad

OnlyHereForTheCamping Wed 21-Oct-15 17:56:05

I returned a top I saw someone wearing on gogglebox

SurlyCue Wed 21-Oct-15 17:57:56

Who was wearing it only?

I returned a top to peacocks once after seeing it worn really badly by someone else out on the street.

OnlyHereForTheCamping Wed 21-Oct-15 18:01:59

It was Scarlett's mum, she is a lovely attractive woman but you know, on gogglebox

SurlyCue Wed 21-Oct-15 18:05:15

I do know! Everytime you wore it someone would say "where have I seen that top before?" Like when I used to recognise my bed linen on hollyoaks grin

BrianCoxReborn Wed 21-Oct-15 18:25:45

The Sidiki's (sp?) had a new sofa at the start of the last series, I seem to recall grin

TheSecondOfHerName Wed 21-Oct-15 21:16:11

If anyone has ever watched 'Campus' there is a middle-aged transgender character called Grace (see photo) who in one episode wore the same top as one that I have (not the top in the photo). That was at least five years ago and I still wear it. smile

BrianCoxReborn Wed 21-Oct-15 21:18:27

Campus was absolutely brilliant. I can't understand why they never made more!

I once turned up to work, aged 20 in the same top as one of the older (60ish) women. I didn't mind, as I'd bought it from River Island but she got ribbed for trying to dress like a kid grin Luckily it was all very friendly.

BrandNewAndImproved Wed 21-Oct-15 21:35:11

I used to recognise my coat in hollyoaks!

VinylScratch Wed 21-Oct-15 21:41:17

Beth in coronation street has a few of my tops, the wardrobe department must like primark and George at asda grin.

MyNameIsAlexDrake Wed 21-Oct-15 23:52:48

I once had the same Next shirt as Gail from Corrie. Gail. I was in my early 30's at the time (cringe).

BringMeTea Thu 22-Oct-15 00:16:01

Ha ha, i spotted Sandy or Sandra? in a Zara top I own the other week. Bit gutted. But I really like it and live many 1000s of miles from the UK so am hoping I can still get away with it. grin

OnlyHereForTheCamping Thu 22-Oct-15 08:29:43

Lol at sandy. Is it spangly?

BringMeTea Thu 22-Oct-15 11:45:30

Nah, tasteful monochrome izzit!

desperatehousewife21 Thu 22-Oct-15 13:01:58

Mynameis- I have a jumper from top shop that I've seen Gail wearing, I'm 25!!

BlueThursday Thu 22-Oct-15 13:54:49

I see the Tappers have a nice new sofa wink

Scarlett was already in reality tv before she did goggle box, she did an mtv show

Some have done adverts on the back of gogflebox haven't they, like Chris and Stephen doing EE and is it Giles and Mary(?) the lottery

I saw Mary doing her shopping in Waitrose last week - it made my day!
