Gogglebox star Sandra Martin, 56, to move into an old people’s home

She won the British public over with her infectious cackle and love of Pot Noodle during her tenure on Channel 4’s Gogglebox.

But since quitting the hit series last year, Sandra Martin, 56, has revealed she’s set to move into an old people’s residence after being made homeless.

Sandra – who is also affectionately known as Queen Bee – found herself back on benefits just before Christmas last year and has been living in budget hotels since she was forced to move out of her flat in Brixton, south London

The fan favourite said she had blown her earnings from the Channel 4 show – thought to be around £1,500-a-month – on takeaways and getting her hair done.

But now Sandra has revealed her new-found happiness after claiming a place at an old people’s home, which she moves into next week.  

She told The Sun: ‘It’s an old people’s home. I thought I’d go in now because the kids are going to put me in there anyway.

‘I’ve got a red button in each room, there’s be everyone downstairs on their zimmer frames, I’ve got three three-course meals every day for a fiver. I love it.

‘I’m so happy to be there and it’s so warm and clean and it’s brand new. There’s security and a lift to go upstairs, there’s a big front room and a shop downstairs.’

The TV personality has just started production in a panto The Snow Queen where she plays Enchantress of the Ice.

She excitedly tweeted: ‘NOT ONLY I GOT A NEW PERMANENT HOME WHOOP WHOOP. I GOT A NEW PERMANENT RELATIONSHIP WITH MY BOYFRIEND AND TING XXX.’ 

The TV star then posted a video in which she explained that she was selecting an engagement ring for her unnamed beau.

Explaining how she quickly burned through her pay from the Channel 4 hit, Sandra told Loose Women in February: ‘The money was coming in. The bank account was big, being in the community, all my friends on the social.’

‘I never got help, but the money was squandering. The money went, taxis, hair, take away, friends that wanted money. The money just went. It was natural to help, I don’t regret it.’

Sandra added that at some points she wished she had never found fame, explaining: ‘I wanted to burn it all and go back to it. I’m not the celebrity person. I do lots of charity work, they don’t pay me, Sandi likes doing the red carpet.’
