Gogglebox star reveals the perks of being on the show including free KFC and Burger King

GOGGLEBOX's Sandra Martin has lifted the lid on the perks of being on the show.

The reality star – who left in 2017 – told how the cast get free fast-food to feast on while watching telly.

Sandra says she and her co-star Sandi Bogle would even have a runner to "tailor to their every need".

Sandra said: "The crew would buy me takeaway every night and they’d have takeaway too. We had all the menu leaflets – KFC, Burger King, Chinese, McDonald’s.

"We had a runner who gets everything we want, although we didn’t take the p**s, he was our friend. There was a camera man, a sound man, five people in total."

Sandra appeared on the sofa from the very first episode alongside Sandi Bogle, but felt the show wasn’t the same after her best pal quit.

“After Sandi left I missed her so much," she said.

"Plus it was a contract show.. you can’t do certain shows like Big Brother if you on Gogglebox… anyway am happy. 5 years on the sofa was good enough.”

She added:  “Apparently when you leave you can’t go back… but Channel 4 know me and my TV partner go back the ratings will go sky high. But unfortunately Channel 4 likes it like this.”

Sandra was due to appear on Celebrity Big Brother when she left but lost her place after talking about it too much.

She has however appeared on a number of other shows including Celebrity First Dates and 100 years younger in 21 days.

A series of stars have left the programme over the years in favour of other TV opportunities, such as Scarlett Moffatt who quit to take part in I’m A Celebrity.

The star previously revealed what it was like working on the show describing how she and Sandi watched eight hours of TV-a-week, over two evenings, with that whittled down to a few minutes of the one-hour show.

She said: "They’d come at 2pm or 4pm, set up the equipment by 6pm and by 10pm they’re out.

"It was easy in-and-out job. But when I watch them doing the show now, I think ‘boring’.”
