Speaking about the forthcoming film of his classic work, Michael Rosen, who voices the bear in the animation, said "I think it's always wrong to want an adaptation to be a strict adaptation. I know that's mad but the point is, a book is a book, a film is a film, a radio programme is a radio programme. It is a new creation and so you have to go with the new rhythm and idea. Animation does very special things, it can create things that aren’t real and make you think they’re real in a very moving way."
Olly Murs said “I’m such a big fan of Gogglebox so being able to be on it with Niall is amazing, especially when it’s for such a brilliant cause like Stand Up To Cancer. We all need to play a part in beating cancer so let’s all join together and raise as much as we can.”
Niall Horan added, “With every penny raised going towards finding cures for cancer, we’re honoured to be a part of Stand Up to Cancer’s fundraising this year. Olly and I had a great laugh filming Gogglebox and hope that we can raise as much as possible for such a great cause"
