The Daily Mail have this week reported that a charity special of Channel 4's domestic mockumentary Gogglebox has been commissioned for broadcast on the UK television network later this month. According to the tabloid publication, the new one-off episode will temporarily shift the programme's focus away from its weekly ensemble of lovable couch-bound commentators to the living rooms of a number of renowned celebrities including - but by no means limited to - Noel Gallagher and Kate Moss.
Better yet, the cause which the instalment in question is purportedly intended to raise funds for and awareness of as part of a wider Children in Need-esque telethon event - in which there'll moreover be comedy sketches featuring the likes of Jamie Oliver and Martin Freeman - is a worthwhile one indeed. Stand Up to Cancer ceaselessly seeks to rally the citizens of Britannia in particular against one of the most prominent and infinitely complex diseases of the 21st Century, if not of our time as a species, an affliction which we're sure that the vast majority of our readership will sadly have encountered in some form already during their lifetimes and which therefore is doubly in need of our attention. Keep it locked at On-Screen for official confirmation of this truly intriguing rumour as and when it arrives, not to mention the opportunity to bear witness to any promotional videos that are released between now and the telethon's nationwide broadcast.
Gogglebox continues this Friday, October 10th at 9pm on Channel 4 with its hilarious third episode, while the live Stand Up to Cancer telethon programme will air via precisely the same channel on October 17th.
