Steve Coogan and Anna Friel join Celebrity Gogglebox for SU2C

The Celebrity Gogglebox special for Stand Up To Cancer is set to air on Channel 4 tomorrow, so we suggest that you nab the prime spot on the sofa, as the all-star line-up has now been confirmed.

Actress Anna Friel and Alan Partridge star Steve Coogan are set to leave audiences in stitches, as they react and share their opinions on the week’s television in aid of a good cause.

It was previously announced that England footballers Jamie Vardy, Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be sharing a couch, along with musicians Olly Murs and Niall Horan, for Gogglebox’s third celebrity special.

Meanwhile Anna and Steve, who revealed they are both avid viewers of the reality TV show, said they were delighted to be taking part.

In a press release, Steve Coogan, 51, said: “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, 40, added: “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 year, the show will be dedicated to Caroline Aherne, the narrator of Gogglebox, who sadly lost her battle with lung cancer this past July.

Other specials for Stand Up To Cancer include a Humans spoof with Greg Davies taking on the unlikely role of a malfunctioning Synth, as well as special editions of Channel 4 classics such as Hollyoaks and Tattoo Fixers.
