Gogglebox: Celebrity Special will see some familiar faces talking television.
Fans of Gogglebox are more than familiar with the boozy poshos Steph and Dom, or hilarious pensioners Leon and June. But this Friday, some new, and extremely toned, backsides will be parking themselves on a particularly stellar sofa, when supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell join Oasis superstar Noel Gallagher in a Gogglebox: Celebrity Special for Stand Up to Cancer.
The trio will be treated to a diet of TV highlights from the past week, including Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor. Keep an eye out for Noel Gallagher cringing his way through the latter, as he is reminded of how angry his daughter is that he turned down Simon Cowell’s invitation to be a judge on the show in 2011. “She’s furious every week that it’s on. She tut tuts at the screen saying, ‘That could’ve been you slagging them off’. I’ll never be forgiven.”
As an experienced actress, Naomi Campbell may be transfixed by Downton Abbey, though it’s fair to say that her new drama, Empire, is has a slightly different feel to it. It’s set in the world of a Chicago hip hop empire, where it’s possible they don’t even change for dinner.
For her part, Kate is a big fan of Gogglebox, and was only too happy to appear on the show. A source said: ‘The sketch will help to raise money for charity and Kate is good friends with Noel and Naomi. When she knew she would have them by her side she did not hesitate to agree.”
She’s also a fan of X Factor, so she’ll be happy, even if Noel is shifting somewhat uncomfortably.
