Michael Sheen and his partner actress Anna Lundberg will be joining Gogglebox for the show’s charity episode.

They will be part of the show’s Stand Up To Cancer special this Friday. The campaign, which is a joint effort between Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK, aims to speed up progress in life-saving cancer research.

“We’re so excited Michael Sheen and his partner Anna Lundberg are joining the sofa fam this Friday, 15th October for the Gogglebox Stand Up to Cancer celebrity special!” Channel 4 said.

They will join Davina McCall, Alan Carr, Adam Hills,  Maya Jama, Usain Bolt, Olivia Colman, Liam Payne, James Blunt, The Jonas Brothers, Rosie Jones, Liam Gallagher and Martin Freeman on the night.

Michael Sheen and Anna Lundberg 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.”

Gogglebox airs on Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 4.
