SU2C Celebrity Gogglebox cast: Matt Lucas and mum Diana
Matt Lucas and his mother have joined the star-studded line-up on Celebrity Gogglebox’s charity special on Friday night.
And, yes, Matt looks just like his mum Diana!
The 47-year-old comedian said: “Mum and I love Gogglebox, so we’re extremely chuffed to be on the sofa together in support of the brilliant Stand Up to Cancer.”
He joked: “Excited for the Squid Game/Bake Off crossover in which we say goodbye to the baker who is leaving us, and then Prue clatters them with a frying pan.”
Of course, Matt has hosted The Great British Bake Off on Channel 4 since 2020.
He’s also known for Shooting Stars, Little Britain, Doctor Who and the Paddington film.
SU2C Celebrity Gogglebox cast: Graham Norton and Michelle Visage
Chat show host and author Graham Norton, 58, will also feature on the show alongside Strictly Come Dancing star Michelle Visage.
Speaking about Celeb Gogglebox, Graham told The Sun: “Cancer keeps robbing us of the most wonderful people.
“So it’s an honour for Michelle and me to be taking our places on the hallowed Gogglebox sofa for this year’s Stand Up to Cancer campaign.”
Michelle, 53, said: “I lost both my adoptive and biological mothers to this awful disease, so it’s incredibly important to me to support the amazing work Stand Up to Cancer do.”
The RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star added: “I love Gogglebox and I adore Graham Norton, so this is my idea of sheer heaven.”
SU2C Celebrity Gogglebox cast: Micheal Sheen and Anna Lundberg
Michael Sheen, 52, takes part in Celebrity Gogglebox with his partner Anna Lundberg.
The Welsh actor 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.”
Michael is famous for his roles in Good Omens, Prodigal Son, Staged and Quiz, where he portrayed Chris Tarrant.
He’s also starred as Tony Blair in The Queen and Aro in the Twilight Saga.

Aisling, meanwhile, has her own C4 sitcom called This Way Up.

Aisling said: “I am more than happy to be supporting Stand Up to Cancer, [fighting] a disease which has touched too many people including my loved ones.
“It’s especially necessary this year given how much strain health services and workers have been under during the pandemic.
“It’s been a rotten couple of years; I hope what we raise can help take even a small bit of the edge off.”
