Celebrity Gogglebox has gained two new stars ahead of the new series as Eurovision star Sam Ryder and BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills have joined the lineup.

Now, it's been reported by Metro that he'll be joining the Celebrity Gogglebox lineup, where he'll be sharing the sofa with DJ and Eurovision commentator, Scott Mills.

This news comes shortly after Sam professed his love for the main Channel 4 show. When he appeared on Zoe Ball's Radio 2 show, Sam said: "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."

Sam and Scott are the latest celebrity duo to have joined the lineup, following in the footsteps of former Strictly Come Dancing winners Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse.
