Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge and Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are joining the cast of Channel 4’s Gogglebox.
As part of their Stand Up To Cancer broadcast on Friday 21st October, the boys have filmed a special episode of the show.
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.”
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.
The footballers will also be joined on the show by Gogglebox household regulars including retired Leon and June, hairdressers Christopher and Stephen and Derby family the Siddiquis.
This year Celebrity Gogglebox is even more poignant as it will be the first celebrity special without the celebrated narration of Caroline Aherne who the show will be dedicated to.
In recent years the shows has seen some unlikely celebrities share a sofa – all in the name of charity; from Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Oasis superstar Noel Gallagher, to Jamie Dornan and Nick Frost, Boy George, Geri Horner (nee Halliwell) and Marilyn and comedian Miranda Hart and her real life mother, Diana.
Further names of the celebrities taking part in Celebrity Gogglebox will be revealed soon.
Stand Up To Cancer airs Friday 21st October on Channel 4.
