Watch Kathy Burke and Paul O’Grady recreate Gogglebox

The comedy duo are paired up on the sofa for Channel 4’s charity marathon with Kate Moss, Noel Gallagher, Naomi Campbell and Miranda Hart also in the line-up

It’s not the most obvious pairing in showbusiness history. But we have a sneaky feeling that actress and director Kathy Burke and presenter Paul O’Grady might make TV gold as they recreate a special version of Gogglebox.


The duo are one of three celebrity groupings lined up for Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer event on Friday, though it appears from the video below that Kathy is anxious that she might be compared with the “posh one” (we think she means Steph Parker) from the hit show.

She may be many things – and have an abundance of talent – but we reckon we can tell Steph and Kathy apart.

O’Grady and Burke will feature in Friday’s fundraising telethon alongside Miranda Hart, who will recreate a Gogglebox night in with her co-stars from the sitcom Miranda, Tom Ellis and Sarah Hadland.

But perhaps the most star-studded sofa is the one occupied by Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher.


Stand Up to Cancer 2014 will be hosted by Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Dr Christian Jessen and will air on Channel 4 on Friday 17th October at 7pm
