The Great British Bake Off is rolling out the red carpet for a batch of brand new celebrity bakers. They’ll be swapping microphones for millefeuille and trophies for truffles as they battle it out to see who will win the coveted Star Baker apron each week – all in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.
Joining Paul, Prue, Noel and Sandi in the famous Tent will be Oscar winning actor Richard Dreyfuss, documentary maker Louis Theroux, British tennis number one Johanna Konta, TV presenter Carol Vorderman, Queer Eye’s resident fashion expert Tan France, singer-songwriter James Blunt, actress and TV presenter Caroline Quentin, presenter Alex Jones, TV judge Rob Rinder, TV personality Scarlett Moffatt, comedian Mo Gilligan, radio and TV presenter Kelly Brook, This Morning’s Alison Hammond, Love Island favourite and sports personality Ovie Soko, former EastEnders actress and DJ Patsy Palmer, YouTuber and West End actor Joe Sugg, comedian Joel Dommett, actor James Buckley, comedian Russell Howard, and comedian and author Jenny Eclair.
In each episode, four of the celebrities will tackle Signature, Technical and Showstopper challenges, all under the watchful eyes of Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith. On hand to offer encouragement (and consolation) will be the ever-distracting Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.
Since its UK launch in 2012, Stand Up To Cancer, the joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 has raised over £62 million to date.
The five-part series of The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off will air on Channel 4 in 2020.
