Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson will reunite for the annual Stand Up To Cancer Gogglebox benefit special on Britain’s Channel 4 at 7:00 p.m. Friday (Oct. 26). 

“It’s for a cause that’s close to our hearts,” Payne wrote in a Twitter post alongside a photo of the boys chilling in a living-room-style set together. “So please give it a watch and donate.”

Tomlinson has experience the pain-filled effects of cancer in his own life. His mother, Johannah Deakin, died of leukemia at age 43 in December 2016.

Gogglebox is a reality show in which families and friends react to U.K. television programs from the comforts of their homes. Other stars appearing in the special include actor Danny Dyer and daughter Dani Dyer, football player Peter Crouch alongside model wife Abbey Clancy and soccer stars Dele Alli and Eric Dier.

The Celebrity Gogglebox show will be accompanied by a jazzy "Carpool Karaoke" feature starring Micahel Bublé and James Corden. The pop crooner recently returned to music after spending time away to help his son Noah battle cancer.
