Who's in the line-up?

Graham Norton and Michelle Visage

TV host Graham, 58, and US star Michelle, 53, will join the host of celebrities taking part in the Channel 4 special.

This due will for sure have viewers in stitches if their appearance is anything like the one on Drag Race UK.

Speaking about joining the cast, Graham said: "Cancer keeps robbing us of the most wonderful people so it’s an honour for Michelle and me to be taking our places on the hallowed Gogglebox sofa for this year’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign.

"I dread to think what we’ll end up watching but it’s safe to say, some shade will be thrown."

Michelle added: “I love Gogglebox and I adore Graham Norton, so this is my idea of sheer heaven.

"I lost both my adoptive and biological mothers to this awful disease so it’s incredibly important to me to support the amazing work Stand Up To Cancer do.”

Michael Sheen and his partner Anna Lundberg

Michael and his partner actress Anna Lundberg will also be joining  Gogglebox for its charity show episode.

The pair both spoke about helping to raise money for the campaign.

They said: “Supporting a brilliant cause like Stand Up To Cancer means such a lot to us both.

“The fact that we can sit on the sofa and watch TV – some of it slightly questionable – is a definite bonus.

“We had such fun filming and are delighted that we can join the Gogglebox families in playing our part this year.”

Suranne Jones and Vigil co-star Adam James

Suranne Jones and Adam James are co-stars who feature in the BBC One drama Vigil together.

They will be appearing on the annual charity show on Friday night. 

The news was announced on Channel 4’s official social media accounts, along with a picture of the pair sharing a sofa for the show.

Aisling Bea and Rob Delaney

Aisling Bea, 37, and Rob Delaney, 44, will also be featured on the Friday night show.

Delaney is best known for playing the X-Force member Peter opposite Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2, as well as creating Catastrophe and landing a role with Tom Cruise in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7.

His couchmate Bea competed in Taskmaster a few years ago, and is also starring in the Disney+ festive remake Home Sweet Home Alone later this year

Speaking about joining the cast, Bea explains: "I am more than happy to be supporting Stand Up To Cancer, [fighting] a disease which has touched too many people including my loved ones," 

“It's especially necessary this year given how much strain health services and workers have been under during the pandemic. It's been a rotten couple of years; I hope what we raise can help take even a small bit of the edge off."

Matt Lucas with his mum Diana.

Bake Off host Matt Lucas, 47, will be joined with his mother, Diana on the sofa.
