Niall Horan is part of the Gogglebox: Celebrity Special which will be shown on Channel 4 this Friday as part of the station's Stand Up to Cancer charity night.

The One Direction singer-turned-solo star is sharing sofa space with singer and TV presenter Olly Murs. Also taking part are footballers Jamie Vardy, Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. More names will be revealed in the build-up to Friday's show.

Mullingar man Horan said he and Murs were "honoured" to appear on the show to raise money for cancer research. "Olly and I had a great laugh filming Gogglebox and hope that we can raise as much as possible for such a great cause," he continued.
