A few things come to mind when we think of Jamie Dornan. Steamy Calvin Klein ads? A given. A seriously impressive set of abs? Obviously. Floggers? Err…
But one thing we’ve never associated him with is sitting down in front of the telly in his stunning countryside home, shedding a tear over the GBBO final or catching up on missed episodes of Corrie. However, he’s set to just that, as he’s about to make his debut appearance on the hit TV show Gogglebox, and it’s all in the name of charity. Oh, Jamie.
The Fifty Shades of Grey actor is just one of the celebs taking part in this year’s Gogglebox celebrity special, and it’ll air during Channel 4 TONIGHT as part of its week of Stand Up To Cancer programming schedule. Last year saw Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher temporarily join the Gogglebox cast for the same cause, so Jamie’s definitely got some big shoes to fill.
Joining the 33-year-old on the sofa is fellow actor Nick Frost, while other stars include Geri Halliwell, Miranda Hart and Boy George. Yep, this is going to be an evening of stellar viewing, isn’t it?
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, and you don’t have a clue what Gogglebox is all about, we’ll fill you in. The regular show showcases members of the public as they watch the week’s worth of television and we, as the at-home audience, get a kick out of their reactions at what they’re watching. In a nutshell, it’s watching people watch TV, and it’s ruddy brilliant.
And while the TV is set to be way more PG than his stint as Christian Grey, as far as we’re concerned, we’ll take all the Dornan we can get.
Check out Jamie going his Gogglebox thing at 9pm on Channel 4 tonight. Now, excuse us while we cancel our current plans…
