Well, this all seems a tad unfair.
George Gilbey’s family have reportedly been given the boot from the next series of Gogglebox because of his decision to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.
While we would have thought it to be excellent publicity for the show, Googlebox producers aren’t in agreement and think that George shouldn’t appear on both.
To make matters worse it’s believed that the couch potato only signed up for Big Brother as the fee in question was just too much for he and his family to turn down.
It’s believed that George has been tipped to make up to £100,000 from his appearance on the reality show.
Googlebox producers Chantal Boyle told The Mirror: “It’s all about money. They are pretty cash-strapped and so you can see why they would accept the offer to go on Big Brother. But we can’t have them in the new series of Gogglebox.”
Instead, producers are planning to take the hit show around the world and show international reactions to big telly stories.
Channel 4’s David Glover said: “When big news stories break we could go round the world to all the sofas.”
Still, here’s hoping that being the joint favourite to win this year’s CBB George won’t need to go back to the show that made him famous.
Fingers crossed there is plenty more brighter prospects on the horizon.
Mum Linda for Strictly, perhaps?!
