Jeremy Corbyn to appear on Gogglebox celebrity special

Jeremy Corbyn Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the House of Commons

The Labour leader will share a sofa and digest the week's television shows with other mystery celebs to raise money for a cancer charity.

Jeremy Corbyn will appear on a celebrity special of Gogglebox, Channel 4 has revealed.

There have been no details shared on which programmes Mr Corbyn will be watching and offering his opinions on, or who he will be joined with in front of the box.

Last year's celebrity special featured Steve Coogan, Anna Friel and Olly Murs.

Of course this isn't the first time the worlds of Gogglebox and politics have collided as back in 2014 Gogglebox regulars Steph and Dom Parker sat down for a chat with the UKIP leader at the time, Nigel Farage.

Recording of the show, in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, will take place this weekend, but is thought that Mr Corbyn's home in north London will be used for filming.

The programme billing reads: "Some very famous faces join Britain's favourite opinionated viewers for a special episode of Gogglebox for this year's Stand Up To Cancer". He has previously made an appearance on The Last Leg in which he arrived wearing white fur coat, apparently stepping out of a white Bentley sports auto with the words "cor blimey" emblazoned across the number plate.
