'We were drunk most the time' Yvie Jones on filming Gogglebox with Bachelorette Angie Kent



She's the loudmouth Gogglebox favourite who is never afraid to speak her mind. 

And on Monday, Yvie Box revealed what it was really like filming with current Bachelorette and former roommate, Angie Kent.

Speaking to Now to Love, the 46-year-old admitted that she couldn't remember her first two seasons on the program because she was ' drunk most of the time'.

'We were drunk most the time' Yvie Jones opened up to Now to Love about what it was really like filming Gogglebox with Bachelorette and former roommate Angie Kent 

The bubbly blonde explained that producers would provide her and co-host Angie Kent alcohol in order to loosen them up for their time on the couch.

'To be honest, the first two seasons we were drunk most of time, so I don't really remember much - It's all a blur,' she said. 

As time went on, Yvie admitted that her negotiation tactics became more polished in order to score better quality booze.

'I got smarter and started requesting preservative-free wine so I'd get a good quality bottle and not a cheap one,' she said.

Yvie and Angie famously quit the show in December after becoming frustrated by their strict contractual obligations and lack of financial compensation.  

As reported by TV Tonight, Yvie said: 'We couldn't endorse anything, we couldn't tag anyone on social media, there were no affiliations. I respect that, but cover us financially.'  

Yvie revealed that she and Angie, 29, were fast growing broke due to their commitment to the program.

Winning:  Since departing Channel 10's Gogglebox Yvie has accepted a lucrative role as a fill in radio host for Fox FM's popular Fifi, Fev and Byron show 

'There's no appearance fee for being on the show, they don't pay you — you get a location fee. Your house gets the fee. We were losing money.

'We were getting offers we weren't able to take. It was extremely restrictive. It would have been fine had we been remunerated.'

Since their departure, the pair have accepted lucrative offers elsewhere - with Yvie finding her footing as a radio host for Fox FM and Angie starring as the current Bachelorette.
