If you love Heartstopper and you love Gogglebox, well, you’re in for a treat.
Members of the cast have joined Celebrity Gogglebox for the Pride special, with Kit Connor, Joe Locke, Yasmin Finney, and William Gao getting comfy on the couch to critic TV shows and films from the past week.
The four have shot to global stardom following the release of Heartstopper on Netflix earlier this year, which saw rugby lad Nick Nelson (Kit) fall in love with form buddy Charlie Spring (Joe).
They embarked on a secret relationship which they had to hide from their pals Elle (Yasmin) and Tao (Will), since Nick had not yet come out.
Following the show’s success – and its renewal for two more seasons – the likes of Kit, Joe, Yasmin, and Will have been booked and busy, with their Celeb Gogglebox stint certain to bring joy to many people’s Friday evening.
It wasn’t long ago that Joe – who just completed his A levels – was freaking out over the regular Gogglebox cast watching him on their screens, so no doubt he’ll be buzzing to be the one dishing out the reviews this time.

As for what they’ll be watching, the Pride special will feature Man Vs Bee on Netflix, One Question on Channel 4, Big Boys, and BBC’s This Is MY House.
The clan will also be tuning in to Glastonbury to watch the ever iconic Diana Ross perform during the legends slot.
That’s not all, as they’ll also be watching the 2022 movie Scream and Prime Video’s The One That Got Away.

The Heartstopper cast won’t be alone though, as there’s a whole host of stars also cosying up for the episode, including H, Claire Richards, and Faye Tozer from pop band Steps.
Joining them are Celeb Gogglebox favourites Rylan Clark and his hilarious mum Linda, Nick Grimshaw and his niece Liv, Clare Balding and her wife Alice Arnold, and Denise Van Outen with pal Duncan James.
But that’s not all! Channel 4 are well and truly spoiling us with some exciting new additions, such as Strictly Come Dancing pair John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, plus drag icons Kofi and Lawrence Chaney – what a show it’s going to be!
This episode of Gogglebox falls on July 1, right at the end of Pride Month, so it’ll be a glorious celebration of all things bold and beautiful.
Tune in at 9pm on Channel 4 tonight and catch up on All4 later.
