Gogglebox star shares odd snack rule and banned phrases after show exit

Gogglebox star Paige Deville has revealed some juicy behind the scenes secrets – including what cast members can and can't say, and why nobody eats the snacks on-screen.

The 26-year-old was on the show with her mother Sally, however since they quit the show the two have been seen to be feuding.

However before the fall-out, the duo were fan-favourites on the Channel 4 series, but it turns out some things they said were completely scrapped.

Paige described the filming experience as a "pantomime", adding that "they prep you to say things and warn you about comments that won't make it onto the show".

She told The Sun : "Once Boris [Johnson] was on and I was like, ‘Oh my God, well he’s not done anything has he? What has he done for this country?’

“They were like, ‘That was never going to be aired Paige’ and wanted me to say something like, ‘Oh my God, he’s doing a great job.'"

However she did also say producers don't force cast members to say anything.

Paige also revealed why plates of snacks never seem to get eaten when they're in shot.

She said: "Sometimes there may be a doughnut or popcorn on the table to make it look homely, but you’re not necessarily going to eat it."

It turns out it's all to do with continuation, so shots can be edited together smoothly.

Similarly, if they are sat in a certain way or with a pillow on their lap, they must stay like that so it doesn't appear that sudden changes have happened.
