Celebrity Gogglebox 2018 will air tonight and here are the celebrities taking part.
The Bafta award winning Gogglebox returns this evening with a brand new celebrity special for the fifth time, featuring a cast of well known faces.
Celebrity Gogglebox will air as part of Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign on Friday 26th October at 9PM.
This very special edition of the TV review programme will see the famous faces as they gawp and gossip at the week’s TV. Between their own cutting remarks, tears and laughter will be the views of Britain’s favourite opinionated viewers; the genuine Gogglebox households including Giles and Mary, best friends Jenny and Lee and the Siddiquis.
Celebs taking part include One Direction stars Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne.
Louis Tomlinson said: “At a time when this awful disease affects more of us than ever before, we have to pull together to make a difference. I’m delighted to join Liam as Stand Up To Cancer Goggleboxers this year, and hope we can help raise as much money and awareness as possible for the campaign.”
Liam Payne added: “Louis and I are honoured to be a part of this year’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign. We hope we can help raise much needed funds for such an incredible cause.”
Joining them will be England footballers Dele Alli and Eric Dier, as well as Stoke City footballer Peter Crouch who will be sharing the Gogglebox sofa with his model and TV presenter wife Abbey Clancy and her father Geoff.
Dele Alli said: “Eric and I were really pleased to be asked to join the Gogglebox families. We wanted to lend our support and help raise awareness for the great work of Stand Up to Cancer.”
Eric Dier added: “The work carried out by the Stand Up To Cancer campaign is amazing and Dele and I are really pleased to be able to play our part. We love Gogglebox so it’s going to be quite surreal to see us on the show.”
Abbey Clancy and Peter Crouch said: “We are such huge fans of Gogglebox so being able to take part in it together is amazing, especially when it’s for such a brilliant cause. The work being done by the Stand Up To Cancer campaign is phenomenal and we are thrilled to be able to play our part.”
Plus, EastEnders actor Danny Dyer and his Love Island star daughter Dani Dyer will also be a part of Gogglebox’s 2018 Celebrity special.
Dani said: “I absolutely love Gogglebox and couldn’t be more excited to be on it with my dad. I’m just hoping we don’t have to watch any of the antiques programmes he’s always watching.
“But I guess as it’s for Stand Up To Cancer, which is such an amazing cause, I can let it slide.”
Danny added: “Dani and I had such a laugh filming Gogglebox and hope we can raise bucket-loads of money for Stand Up To Cancer, as it’s such a wonderful cause.
“Cancer is affecting too many of us and we need to pull together and put a stop to it.”
In recent years the shows has seen some unlikely celebrities share a sofa – all in the name of charity; from Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher to Jamie Dornan and Nick Frost, Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Jeremy Corbyn and Boy George to pop stars Olly Murs and Niall Horan and comedian Miranda Hart and her real life mother, Diana.
Stand Up To Cancer’s telethon airs on Channel 4 from 7PM on Friday, October 26.
