Gogglebox, Hunted and First Dates Hotel all get the celebrity treatment as a raft of special SU2C programming is announced

 

This Autumn, Channel 4 will once again bring stars from across the worlds of entertainment, music and sport together for a raft of dedicated Stand Up To Cancer programming as they join forces to do their bit in the fight against cancer.

 

SU2C programme highlights for 2019 include very special celebrity editions of the multi award-winning Gogglebox and BAFTA nominated Hunted and brand new for this year will be a romantic Italian addition in the form of Celebrity First Dates Hotel.

 

Adam Hills, Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe will also be joined by some star guests as they kick off a new series of the award-winning The Last Leg with an SU2C special.

 

Since its launch in the UK in 2012, the RTS award-winning and BAFTA nominated Stand Up To Cancer, the joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, has raised over £62 million to date funding 52 clinical trials and projects involving 11,000 cancer patients across the country.

 

The SU2C 2019 line-up includes:

 

Celebrity Gogglebox

 

The BAFTA award-winning Gogglebox, a firm favourite of Stand Up To Cancer, returns once again with a celebrity special for the sixth time. Some very famous faces will join Britain’s favourite opinionated viewers for a very special edition of the TV review programme as they pass judgement on a vast array of TV goodness. In recent years the show has seen an amazing variety of celebrities share a sofa all in the name of charity; from Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher, Jamie Dornan and Nick Frost to One Direction’s Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, Danny and Dani Dyer, England footballers Dele Alli and Eric Dier, Steve Coogan and Anna Friel and pop stars Olly Murs and Niall Horan.

Eight famous faces – Jungle campmates and father of the Prime Minister Stanley Johnson & former Made in Chelsea star Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo, celebrity chefs Aldo Zilli & Jean-Christophe Novelli, Rugby legends Martin Offiah & Gavin Henson and former TOWIE stars & best friends Lucy Mecklenburgh and Lydia Bright – will attempt to stay off the radar and remain at large for two weeks as a crack team of hunters try to hunt them down. With former police officers, intelligence and army personnel hot on their tail and faces recognisable across the UK, can the famous really disappear?

Celebrity First Dates Hotel

 

Nestled deep in the exquisite Italian countryside, the First Dates Hotel is about to open its doors to four famous lovelorn singletons as manager Fred Sirieix and his team of cupids roll out the red carpet for the hotel’s first ever celebrity special in support of Stand Up To Cancer. Already turning heads down by the pool is Blue heartthrob and actor Duncan James who is getting ready for his first ever public date as a gay man. Will it be fourth time lucky for thrice divorced presenter and former weathergirl Ulrika Jonsson as she's love matched with an unsuspecting member of the public? And with TOWIE Casanova Pete Wicks and outspoken TV Presenter AJ Odudu also checking in to the ultimate Hotel di Amore, fireworks are guaranteed.

We can’t wait to see the celebrities in action, banging that Stand Up To Cancer drum – be it sitting on the sofa and watching telly, going on the run or hopefully finding love in the stunning Italian countryside.”

 

The live extravaganza will return in 2020.
