Line of Duty’s Ted Hastings, Kate Fleming and Steve Arnott will be joining Celebrity Gogglebox along with mates KSI & Craig David and Mo Gilligan & Babatunde Aleshe. Also on the show will be the regular Gogglebox households including best friends Jenny and Lee, Blackpool brother and sister Pete and Sophie, and the Siddiquis.
Adrian Dunbar commented, “It’s an honour to be part of the esteemed Gogglebox line up especially when it’s raising money for the phenomenal work Stand Up To Cancer do. Being able to watch a load of great – and some questionable – TV alongside Vicky and Martin is an added bonus.”
Vicky McClure added, "I am a big fan of Gogglebox, really chuffed to be asked, and quite surreal, to be part of the Stand Up To Cancer special with Adrian and Martin. We hope we can help raise much needed funds for such an amazing cause.”
Martin Compston commented, “We had such a laugh filming Gogglebox together and we’re delighted to be able to play a small part in the Stand Up To Cancer campaign. At a time when cancer affects more of us than ever before, we really need to pull together and play our part in raising vital funds.”
Craig David commented, "I'm thrilled to be doing the Gogglebox Stand Up To Cancer special with KSI. It's such an amazing cause and such a fun show to do."
KSI added, “I am very excited to return to Celebrity Gogglebox, but this time with Craig David. I’m even more excited to return for such a good cause too. This Stand Up To Cancer episode will be a special one raising a lot of money for those who need it most!”
