The only casting call we care about has been announced. That’s right! Gogglebox is looking for new people to appear on the next season of the popular Channel 4 show.
Gogglebox producer issued a casting call on Instagram writing: “Looking for funny families in the NORTH of England for new series of C4’s Gogglebox.
“Leave a comment below if this sounds like you and feel free to tag anyone who would be perfect.
“I’m looking to have chats with hilarious families / couples / groups of friends from LIVERPOOL, BRADFORD, DEWSBURY, SHEFFIELD and surrounding areas for an upcoming series of Gogglebox.”
“Please tag the funniest people you know particularly interested in speaking to diverse groups who are underrepresented. Get in touch!”
If you think you and your friends, or family have the right banter when watching television shows then this could be the one for you. Following the tragedies of this year, producers of the reality show are reportedly on the lookout for new faces to bring laughs to folks living rooms across the nation.
Speaking to The Daily Star, executive producer, Victoria Ray has described the type of people they are looking for that would fit the mould of the show. If successful stars reportedly get paid £1,500 a month – per family and a free takeaway every time you film.
You’ll be required to spend two six-hour shifts a week watching tele – which wouldn’t be much of a change for us after we’ve worked our way through a Netflix binge session.
She said: “The ideal people are ones who don’t know that they’re funny. We like people who are charismatic, engaging and don’t necessarily see themselves as TV personalities.
“We like to pick people who don’t want to be on the telly.”
People who speak without thinking are ideal, according to Victoria. She added: “It’s good when they have no filter because then they don’t second-guess themselves when they’re talking. We basically want people that you warm to and you want to see in your living rooms.”
