The stars of Channel 4's Gogglebox have reportedly been banned from attending showbiz bashes.

The families have also supposedly been told not to contact or meet up with one another, all in a bid to ensure they stay 'normal'.


It's after the likes of Scarlett Moffatt rose to fame outside the series, with the Geordie now on TV in Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway following I'm A Celebrity last year.

New contracts will apparently also ban families from appearing on other shows, such as Celebrity Big Brother.

A source on the show told the Daily Star: "Channel 4 knows the show works because it's normal families watching TV in their homes.

"They don't want so-called celebrities on it."

Scarlett confessed recently that she had a different perspective watching Gogglebox now.


"I’ve learnt a lot since then… It’s so weird because I watched an old Gogglebox back the other day and it doesn’t even feel like that’s me when I watch it back." she explained. “I was like ‘why are you saying that?’ because now that I’m on TV I realise just how difficult it is.”

Gogglebox continues Friday nights on Channel 4 at 9PM.
