News: Steve Coogan & Anna Friel Join Celebrity Gogglebox Line-Up

Steve Coogan and Anna Friel have joined the line-up of the forthcoming Stand Up To Cancer Gogglebox Special. They will join England stars Jamie Vardy, Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and pop sensations Olly Murs and Niall Horan.

The alter ego of Alan Partridge says: “Cancer has robbed us of the most amazing talent this year and we’ve all lost people close to us. The work undertaken by the Stand Up To Cancer campaign is nothing short of fantastic and Anna and I are delighted to be able to play our part.”

Anna Friel adds: “At a time when cancer seems to affect more of us than ever before, we really need to pull together. Steve and I are such big fans of Gogglebox and are thrilled to be part of this year’s Stand Up To Cancer. We hope that we can help raise lots of money for such a brilliant cause.”

This special edition of the programme will mix famous faces with the views of the genuine Gogglebox households 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 narration of Caroline Aherne, who died of cancer in July. The show will be dedicated to Aherne.

In recent years the shows has seen some unlikely celebrities share a sofa, from Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Oasis superstar Noel Gallagher, to Jamie Dornan and Nick Frost, Boy George, Geri Horner and Marilyn and comedian Miranda Hart and her real life mother, Diana.

Stand Up To Cancer 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.

Stand Up To Cancer is on October 21 on C4. For full line-up for the night click here.
