Paige Deville announced yesterday that she had decided to quit Gogglebox and accused the Channel 4 show of not being supportive. In a new statement, the 25-year-old said there had been drama within her family, which sparked her exit.
She said: “There have been problems within the family and my mum was given an ultimatum.
“The decision means I have nothing to do with her now.
“I think the decision is irreversible. It is very sad but that’s life unfortunately.”
Speaking to Birmingham Live, she added she was invited back to work with another family member on the show, but declined.
