There's a serious side to the challenge, of course. One in two people born in the UK after 1960 will develop cancer and more than 1 in 4 deaths are caused by it. Worldwide, cancer kills more than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Cancer is a complex disease – there are more than 200 types and thousands of subtypes. It is the world’s biggest killer. Today, one in two of us will develop cancer at some point in our lives. But, one in two of us will now survive cancer. On the night of Stand Up To Cancer the celebs will go face to face and play the odds of 1 in 2. As well as David and Olivia's alternative afternoon tea, Iggy Pop and Josh Homme meet in a distinctly rock ‘n’ roll stare off competition, José Mourinho and John Bishop come armed with dad jokes, Rick Astley and Meat Loaf play a nail-biting game of Buckaroo, and Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid get fiercely competitive in a tent challenge.
Stand Up To Cancer airs on Channel 4 on the night of Friday 21st October starting from 7pm. The unforgettable night of entertainment and fundraising will be helmed by Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Adam Hills and will include a flock of famous faces to make you laugh, cry and raise enormous amounts of money. Also confirmed to join in on the night are Steve Coogan, The Last Leg team, Britney Spears, Michael Bublé and many more.
