Olly Murs and Niall Horan to share the Gogglebox sofa

We're expecting plenty of laughs from these two - and maybe a sing-song


Olly Murs and One Direction’s Niall Horan have confirmed they’ll be getting cosy together on the Celebrity Gogglebox sofa.


The singers – both of whom originally found fame on The X Factor – will be appearing in the Channel 4 show’s third celebrity special which will also feature England footballers Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Vardie and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The episode is being broadcast as part of the channel’s Stand Up To Cancer season, encouraging viewers to donate to Cancer Research.

Murs said “I’m such a big fan of Gogglebox so being able to be on it with Niall is amazing, especially when it’s for such a brilliant cause like Stand Up To Cancer.”

Horan added: “With every penny raised going towards finding cures for cancer, we’re honoured to be a part of Stand Up to Cancer’s fundraising this year. Olly and I had a great laugh filming Gogglebox and hope that we can raise as much as possible for such a great cause.”

We reckon these two cheeky chappies should make for a pretty entertaining duo. Other unexpected combos to have appeared in previous celebrity episodes of the show include Kate Moss, Noel Gallagher and Naomi Campbell, and Boy George and Geri Halliwell.


The new episode will be dedicated to former narrator Caroline Aherne, who passed away this year.
