The father and son duo agreed to be part of the new series of the star-studded Channel 4 spin-off - which airs every Friday night - and it's said they are being paid £2,000 each per episode.

A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column: "Getting on to 'Celebrity Gogglebox' is an absolute coup for most stars because it has to be one of the easiest jobs around.

"You just sit and watch TV while having a good old chat - and get paid mega-money to do it."

As well as their big payday, the Spandau Ballet star and Capital Radio DJ Roman - who appeared on last year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' - are also said to be receiving an all-expenses budget for food and booze.

The insider added: "On top of the £2,000 per episode the pair pocket for taking part, there is also an unlimited kitty for constant takeaways, booze and snacks.

"It's the best job on the box and it's not surprising so many people are clamouring to take part."

As well as their stint on 'Gogglebox', the pair have also taken part in a Volkswagen car advert on ITV, which sees them driving through some of the channel's biggest programmes.

Meanwhile, they have their new series 'Martin & Roman's Sunday Best' starting on Sunday (14.06.20).

The 22-episode entertainment series - which will see the duo providing a blend of celebrity guests and live music - is said to have earned them a collective £450,000 pay cheque.

Roman - whose mother is Shirlie Holliman - previously said: "Working with my dad is something I love to do.

"We don't live together anymore - I don't get to see him as often as I used to, so I am so excited to be presenting our own chat show on a Sunday morning, 'Martin & Roman's Sunday Best!' on ITV.

"We will have a real variety of guests on the sofa with us every Sunday, I can't wait to get started!"
