Spice Girl Melanie C, Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo and sports presenter Clare Balding will be settling down on their sofas in front of the general public as they join Gogglebox’s line up for the upcoming third series of the celebrity special.

Clare will feature with her wife Alice Arnold, and there are sibling sets gracing our screens this series as former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Clara will be joined by her brother Andy, and Melanie C will be with her brother Paul.

Ex-footballer pundits Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher are also making their debuts on the Channel 4 show for the third series.

Presenter Lorraine Kelly previously revealed on her own ITV morning show that she was signed up to the series, alongside her daughter Rosie Smith.
