For its third instalment, Celebrity Gogglebox features a cast of famous names.
Production has asked familiar faces to come back to the reality show and new faces have been added to the line up as the show faces a major shakeup due to the Euro 2020 tournament.

This Morning hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes are fan-favourites.
Some viewers were worried, however, when Eamonn slammed producers for the show’s editing, leading it to be removed from Channel 4’s catch-up.
“Hurt beyond belief”, he soon forgot the drama when Celebrity Gogglebox bosses apologised.

Broadcaster Clare and journalist wife Arnold, who both tied the knot in 2015 are two new faces in the line up.
But their debut left some viewers unimpressed as Clare was accused of “belittling” her other half.
Thankfully, some fans only saw Clare’s remarks as playful banter.

When is Celebrity Gogglebox on TV and how can I watch it?
Celebrity Gogglebox fans will have to be patient this Friday evening (18 June) as, due to the Euros, the show will hit the screens with an hour delay.
Channel 4, much like other channels, has been forced to change its plans to make room for England’s clash with Scotland, which will kick off at 8pm.
The third episode of Celebrity Gogglebox will be aired at 10pm, instead of its traditional time (9pm).
Viewers may also catch up on the episodes online via the All 4 player.
