Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to appear in Gogglebox celebrity special

In what is frankly the best news we're likely to hear all week, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell are to appear on Gogglebox together. 

The supermodel pals will star alongside Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher in a special celebrity edition of the reality TV show on October 17. 

The one-off programme will be broadcast as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer fundraiser according to the Mail, who first reported the coup.

"The sketch will help to raise money for charity and Kate is good friends with Noel and Naomi. When she knew she would have them by her side she did not hesitate to agree," a source told the paper.

Moss, 40, is apparently a big fan of the cult hit show, which allows viewers a voyeuristic glimpse into other peoples' living rooms as they watch TV.

The mum-of-one has been close friends with 44-year-old Campbell ever since the pair launched their respective modelling careers 25 years ago.

Campbell regards Moss as a sister figure, she told the Evening Standard last year.

"There’s no bullshit. She’s not pretentious in any way," Campbell said, in a special essay she penned to mark the 40th birthday of her supermodel friend. "What you see is what you get. I love that about her. After all, we’re both from south London — I’m from Streatham, she’s from Croydon — and from working-class families. She’s never tried to be anything else and nor have I. We know our roots."

Since it first hit our screens in 2013, Gogglebox has drawn legions of fans with its hilarious, moving and above all compulsive snapshot into the lives of people watching TV together.

Last year its ratings doubled from 800,000 to 1.5 million, as it became one of the most tweeted-about shows of 2013 with remake rights sold to China, Ukraine and the US (where it is called The People's Couch). 

Its addictive episodes have made minor celebrities out of its subjects, including posh Steph and Dom, who get merrily sloshed in their Kent B&B; the wise-cracking Siddiqui family from Derby; sweet old married Scouse couple Leon and June and best friends Sandy and Sandra from Brixton.

We personally can't wait to see what pearls of wisdom or wisecracks come about as a result of the Moss-Campbell-Gallagher trio. All we can say is it's bound to constitute edge of the sofa material, especially as all three figures have a reputation for being elusive in the public eye and are not often caught speaking on camera - let alone allowing a snippet of their domestic lives to be broadcast on reality TV.

Roll on, October 17
