Eurovision hero Sam Ryder is joining the new series Celebrity on Channel 4 and will appear alongside good pal Scott Mills.

It’s a sweet turn of events for the Space Man singer, who recently expressed his love for the show after storming the competition in Turin, Italy, last month.

‘We’re having a very normal lovely curry as soon as I get home while watching the telly. I just want to watch Gogglebox, and it’s going to be weird cause we’ll be on it,’ he told Zoe Ball on Radio 2.

In addition to Sam and Scott’s signing, Strictly Come Dancing winners Oti Mabuse and Bill Bailey have also been snapped up.

They’ll join the programme on top of a whole host of returning couples, including Nick and Liv Grimshaw, Rylan and Linda Clark, and Martin and Roman Kemp.

Mo Gilligan and Babatunde Aleshe are also returning to the sofa, as are Melanie C and her brother Paul, Lorraine Kelly and her daughter Rosie, friends Shaun Ryder and Bez, and Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash.

Joining them are Miquita and Andi Oliver, Loose Women stars Judi Love and Charlene White, Clare Balding and Alice Arnold, Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher, and mother and son Zoe Ball and Woody Cook.

Meanwhile, Anne-Marie will be making a comeback to the series with a new partner following her all-star turns with Sir Tom Jones and Ed Sheeran. She’ll star alongside her sister Samantha.

And Gogglebox fans aren’t just being served a new Celebrity series, as a Pride special is also on the way.
