Liam Gallagher To Follow Noel In Appearing On Celebrity 'Gogglebox'

Liam Gallagher To Follow Noel In Appearing On Celebrity 'Gogglebox'

The former Oasis frontman follows his brother Noel in appearing on the charity TV show

If there's one thing we all know about Liam Gallagher - apart from the fact he was in some little band called Oasis - is that he loves to run his mouth. He's also very good at it.

Which means fans of his foul-mouth wit would be wise to tune into Channel 4's Celebrity Gogglebox this Friday, because the iconic singer will be appearing on the show this Friday.

What's more, the 45 year-old will be joined by his mother Peggy and his 16 year-old son Gene as they sit down to watch - and discuss - some current TV favourites.

By appearing on the show, Liam follows in the footsteps of his older - and almost as outspoken - brother Noel, who gave his opinion alongside Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell in a 2014 celebrity episode of the TV show.

"Liam is one of the most opinionated celebrities ever," said a TV insider, stating the obvious. "To get him talking about current shows will be TV Gold. If he's half as ruthless as he is on Twitter, viewers will be in for a treat."

That's not the only reason the episode - which airs at 9pm this Friday as part of Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer campaign - will be worth watching. Other participants include another of British music's most outspoken alumni, Ozzy Osbourne, who'll appear with his wife, Sharon.

A League Of Their Own stars Freddie Flintoff and Jamie Redknapp will also be taking seats on the sofa to talk about whatever programmes they watch. Sadly, we have no idea what those may be.

Whatever he ends up watching, Liam seems particularly excited to be appearing on the show. Speaking about his Gogglebox debut, the singer said: "It's an honour and privilege to be invited on one of my favourite TV shows, the mighty Gogglebox, especially with my fam and for such a great cause as Stand Up To Cancer."

In what might be seen as a dig at brother Noel's appearance, the younger Gallagher also took to Twitter to explain his decision to appear on the show:

"A platform to get mouthy," he wrote, adding: "I was asked to do something for charity with my fam, not supermodels and squares."

In addition to Liam's brother, other stars that have appeared on the show include One Direction's Niall Horan, X Factor runner-up Olly Murs, former Spice Girl Geri Horner and actor Jamie Dornan. Something tells us this will definitely be one not to miss.
