Liam Gallagher and Ed Sheeran sign up for Celebrity Gogglebox

Channel 4 have confirmed Liam Gallagher will appear in a Celebrity Gogglebox special alongside his mum and son.

The 45-year-old singer will feature on an upcoming Stand Up To Cancer special edition of the show with his mother Peggy and 16-year-old lad Gene as part of a star-studded line-up which also features Ed Sheeran, and Jessica Hynes.

Liam Gallagher has been confirmed as one of the famous faces on this week’s Celebrity Gogglebox.

Former Oasis frontman Liam said: “It’s an honour and privilege to be invited on one of my favourite TV shows, the mighty Gogglebox especially with my fam and for such a great cause as Stand up To Cancer.”

Liam – now known for his outspoken views on Twitter – will follow in the footsteps of his brother Noel Gallagher, who appeared on the charity special alongside supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell in 2013.

Ed Sheeran will appear on Celebrity Gogglebox 

The Roller hitmaker appeared to poke fun at his sibling’s appearance on the programme alongside the two fashion icons, writing on Twitter that he has been “asked to do something for charity with my fam not supermodels and squares”.

Fellow singer Ed will be sitting on one of the Gogglebox sofas with his pals Example and Big Narstie, and admitted it is going to be “surreal” to appear on the show.

He said: “I’m such a huge fan of Gogglebox so it’s going to be weirdly surreal to actually be part of it with two of my closest friends but when it’s for an incredible cause like Stand Up To Cancer, how could we say no?”

Other stars who will feature in this Friday’s charity special include Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, retired sports stars Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff, and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Gogglebox: Celebrity Special for SU2C will air on Friday November 3rd at 9pm on Channel 4.
