Rich-list couple Hamish and Zoë Foster Blake were reportedly paid a whopping $500,000 to appear on Celebrity Gogglebox.

‘All of these people have done 10 or 20 years in the media industry. We’ve literally sat on the couch for seven or eight years,’ Adam said. 

‘I actually quite like seeing their houses to be honest!’ he added. 

‘Them getting paid [more] doesn’t really affect my life.’

It was reported in March that the cast of Gogglebox was up in arms over the enormous paychecks given to the Blakes and other stars of Celebrity Gogglebox.

Comedian Hamish, 40, and skincare entrepreneur Zoë, 41, filmed just one episode of the spin-off series, for which they were allegedly paid $500,000.

By contrast, the ordinary Goggleboxers are said to earn a $1,200 ‘location fee’ per household for each day of filming.

‘Hamish and Zoë have apparently landed a pay cheque that is simply unfair in the eyes of the entire cast – mostly the families who have been there since the start and get paid far less,’ an anonymous cast member said.

‘You can’t pay one person half a million dollars and then someone else $1,200. I don’t care who you are.’ 

Hamish and Zoë’s paycheck saga reportedly reignited a long-running disagreement between the cast and producers over how much the Goggleboxers should be paid. 

‘Time will tell, but if things don’t change, [the original cast] will be forced to walk for good,’ the source warned.
