There's no need to perfect your CV either, as all you have to do is submit a video or photo and tag the post with @NOWTV and #BoxSetSabbatical to show why you're deserving of the binge-watch role.

You will need to act fast though as applications close on Thursday, 14th February.

All entries for the role will be judged by a panel as well as a comedian Joel Dommett the day after.

Joel explained: "For anyone who loves telly, this really is the most unbelievable gig.

"Sitting with my feet up watching my favourite shows and getting paid for the privilege is something I quite literally dream about."

The panel will "select a winner that they think best demonstrates TV watching passion, creativity, and experience," who will be announced on 19th February.

If you are chosen for the 'Box Set Sabbatical, you will win a NowTV Smart Stick as well as 12 months worth of TV passes, plus the huge £35,000 prize.

There will only be one winner though, and we are guessing that there will be a lot of competition for this highly competitive role.

The exciting competition comes after research found that a fifth of Brits have been forced to pull an all-nighter just to catch up on all their favourite television box sets.

Conducted by marketing research company OnePoll, the study found that almost a quarter of the 2,00 UK participants felt left out when family and friends discussed TV shows they hadn't seen.

And one in 20 even admitted to pulling a "sickie" just to watch their favourite TV.
