Tom Daley, Gordon Ramsay and their families take part in a special celebrity edition of Gogglebox as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up to Cancer charity campaign
Celebrity Gogglebox returns for another new episode in October for Stand Up to Cancer.
Olympian Tom Daley and chef Gordon Ramsay are among the celebrities who will appear with their families as part of the Channel 4 charity initiative.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Celebrity SU2C2022 glasses box.
Which celebrities are appearing in tonight’s Gogglebox?
Tom Daley and his husband Dustin Lance Black will appear on Gogglebox tonight. Daley of course, you will know as an Olympic diver (not a swimmer) and gold medalist; Black, meanwhile, you might not know him by name, but you’ll probably know some of his work. He’s an Oscar-winning writer, having penned films like Milk; more recently, he was behind Andrew Garfield’s true crime drama Under the Banner of Heaven.
They are joined by Gordon Ramsay and Tilly Ramsay. Gordon you will know this from several of his cooking programs, the most famous Kitchen Nightmares, but over the years he has also done a lot of wider presentations and appeared on travel shows with Gino D’Acampo and Fred Serious. Tilly Ramsay, meanwhile, is a social media influencer and presenter; perhaps his highest-profile TV appearance to date was Strictly Come Dancing in 2020.
Charlotte Church is the next celebrity to feature in this special edition of Gogglebox. Church is a Welsh singer-songwriter – a classical singer and a soprano in particular – who you’d know from albums like Back to Scratch. She also briefly hosted a self-titled Channel 4 chat show, The Charlotte Church Show.
Actor Luke Evans will appear on Celebrity Gogglebox with Charlotte Church. You’ll know Evans from things like the recent live-action Beauty and the Beast, or ITV’s true crime drama The Pembrokeshire Murders. He can next be seen in the AppleTV+ drama Echo23, which arrives in late November. Evans and Church – appearing together – are close friends, having collaborated on a song from Evans’ recent album.
Finally, Ruby Wax and Mel B will also appear together. Ruby Wax is a comedian and actress who once appeared on an SU2C Bake-Off special, while Mel B is of course a Spice Girl.
Do any of the regular Gogglebox members show up?
Yes, a number of recognizable faces from the normal editions of Gogglebox will appear as part of the Celebrity Stand Up to Cancer special.
Jenny and Lee, Pete and Sophie, Marcus and Mica, and the Siddiquis will all be part of the special.
What TV will they watch?
The assembled Gogglebox stars will watch Netflix horror drama The Watcher, BBC One singing competition I Can See Your Voice, Netflix dating show Love Is Blind and BBC Two quiz show Only Connect.
They will also give their opinion on the appointment of Rishi Sunak as Prime Minister, as this was mentioned on television and therefore theoretically falls within their remit.
What time does Celebrity Gogglebox play?
Celebrity Gogglebox airs at 9 p.m. on Channel 4 on Friday, October 28. You’ll also be able to catch it on All4, if that’s something you might be interested in.
