‘Gogglebox’ Stars ‘Threaten To Strike’ Over VIP Treatment Of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ Star Scarlett Moffatt

'Bosses are going against all their own rules to keep her happy.'

The stars of ‘Gogglebox’ are reportedly so unhappy about the preferential treatment of Scarlett Moffatt that they’re threatening to strike.

Channel 4 have strict rules about what the Goggleboxers do outside of the show, which means they are prevented from cashing in on their fame.

But since joining the show in series 3, Scarlett, who has her own management team, has released a book and fitness DVD, has her own radio show and has been paid a reported £70,000 to take part in the new series of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’.

In comparison, George Gilbey, who appeared on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ in 2014, was told he wouldn’t be welcome back on the show.

After missing two series, the producers had a change of heart and asked George and his family to return.

A Channel 4 spokesperson said: “All cast are thrilled for Scarlett and wish her all the best in the Jungle.

Last month Gogglebox’ favourites Steph and Dom Parker broke the news that they were “taking a break” from the hit Channel 4 show to concentrate on “other projects”..

Steph revealed: “We think it’s important that everyone gets their chance to be on ‘Gogglebox’ and give their opinion, and having been on it from the beginning we felt like we’d pretty much said all we needed to say, and we knew what we were going say.

“We’ve decided to take a break from it.”

“You can have too much of a good thing, so you can’t overdo it, we just felt it was time. We’ve got other projects and not a lot of time.”
