'Gogglebox' Star Sandra Martin Reveals She's Been Left Penniless And Homeless After Spending Show Earnings

'I have no money coming in. It's scary.'

Former ‘Gogglebox’ star Sandra Martin has told of how she’s been left with no money or home after spending all the money she earned from the show.

Sandra, who appeared on the Channel 4 series alongside best pal Sandi Bogle, revealed she has been forced out of her Brixton home and is living out of a suitcase in a budget hotel after not being able to keep up with the bills.

Sandra revealed she’d quit ‘Gogglebox’ live on ‘This Morning’ in July, following the departure of Sandi in 2016. 

She was due to star in pantomime in Maidenhead over the Christmas period, but had to pull out due to health reasons. 

However, she is rumoured to be one of the stars heading into the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house when the new series kicks off in January, after Sandi became a housemate last summer.  

Earlier this year, Sandra revealed she earned £100,000 a year during her time on ‘Gogglebox’. 

Speaking to the Daily Mail’s This Is Money, she said: “It was the best wage I ever earned in my life and I got asked to do loads of celebrity appearances at events which Channel 4 would also pay me for. I still had time to sell stuff at car boot sales because I only had to do ‘Gogglebox’ two days a week for six months of the year.

She added: “I paid tax on an income of £100,000. In fact, ever since I started doing ‘Gogglebox’ in 2012, I have earned around £100,000 every year.

“But I did not want to sit on that sofa for the rest of my life. I wanted to spread my wings.”
