Mel C has joined 'Celebrity Gogglebox'.

The Spice Girl will put her feet up and watch some telly when she appears on the celebrity version of the popular Channel 4 reality show next month.

Mel, 47, will be joined by fellow newcomers Clare Balding and her wife Alice Arnold, Lorraine Kelly with her daughter Rosie, 'Strictly Come Dancing' star Clara Amfo and her brother Andy, as well as former Premier League stars Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher.

Lorraine told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “There is no point doing it and watching what you say. You have to go for it.”

They will all join series regulars Denise Van Outen, Maureen Lipman, Chris Eubank, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

Nick Grimshaw – who first appeared on the show with his niece Liv in 2019 – will return to the programme and has already shared some advice for the debuants.

He said: “Channel 4 pay for the snacks so you can have whatever you want. At the start we started off we wanted to be healthy but now we just have crisps.”

Meanwhile, Clara is also set to appear on a special edition of the show to mark Black History Month.

An insider revealed: "As one of the ways Channel 4 are marking Black History Month they are airing a special 'Gogglebox' episode with just black talent. The bookers are reaching for the stars quite literally with the line up.

"Along with Clara, they want to approach big names including Sir Lenny Henry, Naomi Campbell and Dame Kelly Holmes. It will be an absolutely outstanding line up when everyone is confirmed."
