Michael Sheen and his partner Anna Lundberg will be making an appearance on a special celebrity edition of Gogglebox as part of Stand Up To Cancer.

The campaign, which is a joint effort between Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK, aims to speed up progress in life-saving cancer research.

Michael and Anna will be joining a vast array of famous faces as they pass judgement on the week's television output.

Regular Gogglebox households, including best friends Jenny and Lee, Blackpool brother and sister Pete and Sophie, South London partners Marcus and Mica and the Siddiqui family will also be there.

The likes of Peter Crouch, Noel Gallagher, Naomi Campbell, Steve Coogan. Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Vicky McClure and Martin Compston have all appeared on these specials before.

Michael and Anna spoke about helping to raise money for the campaign.

They said: ”Supporting a brilliant cause like Stand Up To Cancer means such a lot to us both.

"The fact that we can sit on the sofa and watch TV – some of it slightly questionable – is a definite bonus.

"We had such fun filming and are delighted that we can join the Gogglebox families in playing our part this year.”
