The YouTube star – whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji – is set to appear on the first three episodes of the new Channel 4 series alongside musician S-X on Friday (05.06.20).
He took to Twitter to reveal the news, writing:
‘Ya boy is gonna be on @c4gogglebox with @producerSX
‘Starts this Friday at 9pm on @channel4 #CelebrityGogglebox (sic)’.
The 26-year-old entertainer found fame on the video platform by posting vlogs and comedy-style videos before venturing into a rap career with a chart-topping debut album, and he has won three high-profile boxing fights.
The news comes after it was announced musician Jools Holland will join other famous telly addicts as they reflect on popular TV shows from their own sofas.
A source said:
‘Jools loves Gogglebox and has been wanting to get involved for a while. It was a struggle with his schedule but he has found time to appear.
‘Jools is a real character and is very funny so the producers are excited to see what he can bring to the table’.
Also taking part in the show are football manager Harry Redknapp and his wife Sandra, TV star couple Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon, actress Denise van Outen and her partner Eddie Boxshall, and radio DJ Nick Grimshaw and his niece Liv.
What’s more, viewers will see Love Island narrator Iain Stirling and presenter Laura Whitmore, boxer Nicola Adams and her partner Ella Baig, and Radio 2 DJ Zoe Ball and her son Woody Cook – who appeared on Channel 4 reality show The Circle – on the star-studded programme.
It was previously reported that Nicole Appleton and Melanie Blatt have signed up for another stint.
The 45-year-old star – who was married to Liam Gallagher between 2008 and 2014 – and Melanie, 45, are said to have agreed a deal that will see the All Saints bandmates return to the sofa.
