A third 'Gogglebox' celebrity special will air this month for Stand Up To Cancer
A third 'Gogglebox' celebrity special will air this month.
The programme, which sees families and groups of friends from around England and Wales reacting to television shows from their own homes, will feature a number of stars for a Stand Up To Cancer special on October 21, the Daily Mirror reports.
A previous celebrity special memorably featured Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher.
And last year, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' hunk Jamie Dornan appeared on the show, alongside 'Hot Fuzz' actor Nick Frost as they gave viewers an insight into what it's like to watch Britain's most popular TV shows with a celebrity.
Former Spice Girls star Geri Horner, ex-'The Voice' judge Boy George and 80s popstar Marilyn have also sat down for a night of TV to raise money for charity.
Names for this year are still being finalised but Louis Walsh recently revealed he would jump at the chance to take part in the Channel 4 show with Sharon Osbourne.
He said: "I'd go on 'Gogglebox', I'd be good on 'Gogglebox'. Can you imagine me with Sharon? We'd be great fun, cursing and shouting, watching [The 'X Factor's rival] 'Strictly' [Come Dancing]."
Meanwhile. this year's Stand Up To Cancer line-up will also feature Michelle Keegan and Rio Ferdinand in a special episode of 'The Crystal Maze'.
It has been 21 years since the show last aired on TV screens and Radio DJ Sara Cox, Paralympics champion Jonnie Peacock and comedian Josh Widdicombe will all take part in the special episode, which will be hosted by Stephen Merchant.
The original 'Crystal Maze' series was presented first by Richard O'Brien and then Ed Tudor-Pole and aired for six seasons between 1990 and 1995.
