The Great British Celebrity Bake Off is back for Stand Up 2 Cancer. This year we see 20 new celebrities take on baking and try to win the competition, while raising awareness and donations for a great cause.
Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will continue to judge the celebrities of the Stand Up 2 Cancer series. Comical presenters Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig will also be returning to give us the giggles and bakery puns!
Which Celebrities are participating in Celebrity Bake Off?
There are some great celebrities heading to the tent this year, but how good will their baking skills be?
British journalist and quiz master of University Challenge. Jeremy has often interrogated and grilled politicians, but how well he perform when he’s under the pressure of Bake Off? We shall see.
Actress Sally Lindsay will put her skills to the test. Sally is best known for her role as Shelley Urwin in Coronation Street.
Another Corrie star joins the group of bakers. Michelle Keegan is best known for playing Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street and also Lance Corporal Georgie Lane in the hit series Our Girl.
Loveable comedian Jon Richardson has a very dry sense of humour, but will it be dry enough to save him from having a soggy bottom? Jon has been on every panel show known to man. He often discusses his worries and shows his perfectionist personality, but will his perfections help him in the bake off?
Quirky comic, Russell Brand is competing this year. Will he be able to put his vivid imagination and eccentricity into his bakes?
Actor Russell Tovey takes part this year. You will probably recognise him from the British BBC series Him & Her.
Another star from The Crown! Greg Wise gets in on the baking action.
Politician and Member of Parliament, Jess Phillips helps raise awareness by taking on the bake off.
Another comedian steps up to the bake. James Acaster is quirky, silly and mischievous, we’re not sure how far he will get in the competition, but he certainly will be great to watch! In relevant news, James Acaster recently launched a new food-based podcast.
MC and rapper Big Narstie has feature on many TV series and even has his own called The Big Narstie Show. The only bars he will be using in this show will be bars of chocolate.
British professional boxer and Olympic gold medallist Nicola Adams will put up a fight in the bake off.
English Track and field athlete Katarina is another sports champion competing in the bake-off, but will she come out on top this time?
TV presenter Caroline Flack, will be swapping the heat from Love Island with the heat from the oven.
British wheelchair racer, Paralympian and MBE Hannah Cockroft takes on the bake, but will she become a champion at baking?
Hairy comedian Joe Wilkinson is a comedian and very unlikely baker. Joe will be another great baker to watch as he brings his unique humour to the tent.
Comedian and actor Johnny Vegas certainly likes his food, but how good is he at making it?
Made in Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo has lived a life of luxury, with most tasks being done for her. How will she cope with having to bake?
Journalist and Channel 4 news reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy puts on the oven mitts, perhaps he will be a baking guru?
Big Brother star and TV presenter Rylan Clark-Neal (made famous by X Factor) will be joining the gang.
