1. “We were losing money.” Yvie Jones has shared the difficult reality of appearing on Gogglebox.
Now, speaking to TV Tonight, Yvie, who was the runner-up on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, has shared why the pair made the difficult decision to leave the show.
“We couldn’t endorse anything, we couldn’t tag anyone [on social media], there were no affiliations. I respect that, but cover us financially,” she explained.
“There’s no appearance fee for being on the show, they don’t pay you – you get a location fee. Your house gets the fee,” she added.

It’s true! After eight amazing seasons and four years of our lives, @angiekent_ and I have decided it’s time to switch off our TVs and farewell #GoggleboxAU. We will always be Goggleboxers at heart and so will our brothers from other mothers @wayneandtom ! We love our Gogglebox family very much. Angie and I will be together this weekend and will go live to answer all of your questions! It’s not goodbye, it’s just see ya soon! Love you all and thank you so much for the support over the years. Us and our many rescue babies are so grateful for the love ❤️ @yvie_jones #goggleboxau #adoptdontshop #goodbyefornow
