The 52-year-old actor is also known for his roles in Good Omens and Staged, in which his Swedish-born other half also appears. Speaking about joining the Gogglebox family, they said: "Supporting a brilliant cause like Stand Up To Cancer means such a lot to us both.

"The fact that we can sit on the sofa and watch TV – some of it slightly questionable – is a definite bonus. We had such fun filming and are delighted that we can join the Gogglebox families in playing our part this year."

However, viewers will be delighted to hear that regular Gogglebox favourites including best friends Jenny and Lee, brother and sister duo Pete and Sophie, South Londoners Marcus and Mica and the Siddiqui family will also appear in the episode to pass judgement on a vast array of TV goodness from the last week.
