Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy and Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge will be settling down on the Gogglebox sofa as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer spectacular
A special celebrity edition of Gogglebox will air as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer TV event and will include England football players Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge
Leicester’s Jamie Vardy said “Being fans of the show ourselves, we can’t wait to join the Gogglebox families and hope that together we can raise vital funds and awareness for Stand Up To Cancer”.
Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain added, “With one in two of us developing cancer in our lifetime, it’s so important for us to join together and do as much as we can. By being part of this Gogglebox special, we’re delighted to help support this amazing cause so let’s raise as much as we possibly can and really make a difference”.
This very special edition of the TV review programme will join some 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 the genuine Gogglebox households including retired Leon and June, hairdressers Christopher and Stephen and Derby family the Siddiquis.
This year’s Celebrity Gogglebox – the third of its kind – is even more poignant as it will be the first celebrity special without the celebrated narration of Caroline Aherne, who died from cancer in July and to whome the show will be dedicated.
Stand Up To Cancer, sponsored by BT, will be live for an unforgettable night of entertainment and fundraising on Channel 4. Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Adam Hills will be joined by a flock of famous faces to make you laugh, cry and raise enormous amounts of money.
Further names of the celebrities taking part in Celebrity Gogglebox will be revealed soon.
Stand Up To Cancer, Channel 4, Friday, October 21, from 7.00pm.
