The Bafta award winning Gogglebox returns once again with a celebrity special for the fifth time. EastEnders actor Danny Dyer will be sharing the Gogglebox sofa with his daughter, Love Island winner Dani Dyer as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign on Friday 26th October.
This very special edition of the TV review programme will see the famous faces as they gawp and gossip at the week’s TV. Between their own cutting remarks, tears and laughter will be the views of Britain’s favourite opinionated viewers; the genuine Gogglebox households including Giles and Mary, best friends Jenny and Lee and the Siddiquis.
Danny Dyer said, “Dani and I had such a laugh filming Gogglebox and hope we can raise bucket loads of money for Stand Up To Cancer as it’s such a wonderful cause. Cancer is affecting too many of us and we need to pull together and put a stop to it.”
Dani Dyer added, “I absolutely love Gogglebox and couldn’t be more excited to be on it with my dad. I’m just hoping we don’t have to watch any of the antiques programmes he’s always watching… but I guess as it’s for Stand Up To Cancer, which is such an amazing cause, I can let it slide!”
In recent years the shows has seen some unlikely celebrities share a sofa – all in the name of charity; from Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher to Jamie Dornan and Nick Frost, Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Jeremy Corbyn and Boy George to pop stars Olly Murs and Niall Horan and comedian Miranda Hart and her real life mother, Diana.
Launched in the UK in 2012, the joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 raises funds for translational research, accelerating new cancer treatments and tests to UK patients to save more lives, more quickly. More than £38 million has been raised in the UK to date, funding 35 trials and projects involving more than 8000 cancer patients, and supporting one international Dream Team
STAND UP TO CANCER IS ON CHANNEL 4 ON FRIDAY 26TH OCTOBER FROM 7PM
