Paige Deville, who starred in the hit TV show, criticised show’s crew for using up her toilet paper and electricity before she quit the show.
Gogglebox star Paige Deville hit out against crew and producers following her dramatic exit from the Channel 4 show.
The 25-year-old TV personality also claimed she was ‘not paid a celebrity wage’ despite being classed as celebrities, as she and mum Sally reportedly got just £100 for a nine-hour filming session.
“There are more popular characters on the show than myself and my mum like Pete and Sophie and the Malones,” Paige explained.
“When they weren’t available producers would contact us and ask us to film at the drop of a hat which we would do.”
The star continued to hit out at the show, claiming: “The whole filming was very invasive.
“We weren’t getting paid much but Gogglebox staff would be using your electric, your soap, your toilet paper.”
Paige began to resent having people in her house, stating it would ‘grate’ on her.
There are usually five people from Gogglebox at every filming session including a cameraman, producer, assistant producer, sound engineer and runner.
The nine hour shifts took place in Paige’s home between 3.30pm and 12.30am.
“Filming is tough,” the star shared.
“You would stop to go to the toilet but other than that you wouldn’t have a break. You would eat while filming.”
The star quit the show in September following a dramatic fallout with mum Sally, and took to Twitter to state that the show offered “zero aftercare support.”
She now wants to concentrate on running her Staffordshire-based beauty recruitment business, Palm Recruitment.
A Channel 4 spokesperson said: “The welfare of contributors – past and present – is of paramount importance and robust protocols are in place to support contributors before, during and after taking part in the series.”
