'Gogglebox' star left homeless after spending show earnings

HOMELESS: Sandra Martin

SHE WAS one of Gogglebox's most loved stars - and now, Sandra Martin has revealed how she’s been left with no money or home after spending all the money she earned from the show.

Martin, who appeared on the Channel 4 series alongside best pal Sandi Bogle, shared that she has been forced out of her Brixton home and is living out of a suitcase in a budget hotel after not being able to keep up with the bills.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: “I have no money coming in. It’s scary.”

Revealing she has packed up her home and moved into a cheap hotel, she continued: “It meant I didn’t have to worry about paying all the bills. I thought it was the best thing to do to survive, living out of my suitcase. I’ve really been trying my best.”

Last year, Sandra was seen charging fans £1 for pictures with her at British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park.

She gave those on benefits a discounted price of 50p and took the payments in a money box covered in pictures.

Martin revealed she’d quit Gogglebox live on This Morning in July, following the departure of Sandi in 2016.

She was due to star in pantomime in Maidenhead over the Christmas period, but had to pull out due to health reasons.

However, she is rumoured to be one of the stars heading into the Celebrity Big Brother house when the new series kicks off in January, after Sandi became a housemate last summer.

Sandra reportedly earned £100,000 a year during her time on Gogglebox.
