The Celebrity Gogglebox line-up just got a whole lot stronger, with Suranne Jones and Vigil co-star Adam James set to star on the Stand Up To Cancer special.

The pair, who appeared in the critically acclaimed drama together earlier this year, will be watching telly for a good cause this Friday.

They’ll be sharing a sofa on the special edition of the programme, which sees Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK team up to raise money for the charity.

Joining them on Friday’s programme will be the likes of Drag Race pair Graham Norton and Michelle Visage, as well as Aisling Bea and Rob Delaney. 

Michael Sheen and his partner Anna Lundberg will also be appearing in the line-up as well as Matt Lucas and his mum Diana.

The celebs will be passing judgement on a selection of the nation’s favourite TV, while the regular Gogglebox families will also be on hand to offer their opinions and observations.

Suranne said: ‘Cancer affects way too many of us and the work being done by the Stand Up To Cancer campaign is incredible, so Adam and I are delighted to be involved.’

Adam added: ‘As a longstanding fan of the show, I am thrilled to be joining the esteemed list of Stand Up To Cancer Goggleboxers alongside the marvellous Suranne.

With one in two of us developing cancer in our lifetime, it’s so important for us to all join together raising vital funds and really make a difference.’

They follow in the footsteps of the likes of Naomi Campbell, Noel Gallagher and Line of Duty stars Vicky McClure, Adrian Dunbar and Martin Compston in appearing on the charity version of the hit programme.

It comes a few weeks after Suranne and Adam had the nation hooked on Vigil, with a murder mystery playing out hundreds of metres below the surface of the North Sea.

The programme, which came from the creators of Line Of Duty, had viewers clamouring for a second series after it arrived earlier this summer.

Stand Up To Cancer is on Channel 4 on Friday 15th October from 7.30pm. To donate to Stand Up To Cancer, go to channel4.com/SU2C. 100% of your donation goes to Cancer Research UK in support of the SU2C campaign.
