GOGGLEBOX fans all have their favourite family on the popular show.

And for some it’s June and Leon – but who are they? Here’s what you need to know.

But the national treasures have certainly proved any doubters wrong and their relationship has certainly stood the test of time.

How much do the Gogglebox families get paid?

A Gogglebox insider told The Sun Online that each of the families taking part are handed a monthly family allowance of £1,500.

How many hours of TV do the Gogglebox families watch?

In exchange for the £1,500 fee (and free food) each of the families are expected to commit to 12 hours of filming a week across two six-hour shifts.
