Speaking out about the announcement, Ed said: “I’m such a huge fan of Gogglebox so it’s going to be weirdly surreal to actually be part of it with two of my closest friends, but when it’s for an incredible cause like Stand Up To Cancer, how could we say no?”

The Shape of You singer joins an incredible line-up of well known faces including Liam Gallagher, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, and Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn.

The special episode will air this Friday, November 3 on Channel 4 at 9pm.

Meanwhile, the singer yesterday announced he will return to Asia next year after he was forced to cancel a number of gigs following a biking accident in London earlier this month.
