The cast of Heartstopper is sitting down to watch TV as they guest star on Channel 4's Celebrity Gogglebox.

Kit Connor, Joe Locke, Yasmin Finney, and Will Gao (Nick Nelson, Charlie Spring, Elle Argent, and Tao Xu, respectively) are all featured in promo material for the Pride special.

The episode, which airs today (Friday 1 July) at 9pm, will also feature Drag Race UK queens Tia Kofi and Lawrence Chaney, Strictly Come Dancing sensations John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, plus Steps' Ian 'H' Watkins, Claire Richards, and Faye Tozer.

The Heartsopper quartet will reportedly be watching Big Boys, Glastonbury, This Is My House, Scream, and more.

Meanwhile, Kit Connor seems to have been able to laugh at a slightly hilarious misspelling of his name, with Channel 4 calling him "Kit O'Connor". 

It appears the mistake was later corrected.  

The Attitude July/August issue is out now.
