Celebrity Great British Bake Off Line-Up for Stand Up To Cancer has been Confirmed

Channel 4’s Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off has finally confirmed the stars who are to feature in this year’s specials.

Each episode of Bake Off will see four celebrities battling each other over three rounds in a bid to become the Star Baker for charity. The rounds will consist of the usual signature, technical and showstopper challenges.

Comedian and Chatty Man presenter Alan Carr is joining Loose Women panellist Stacey Solomon, Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher and Made in Chelsea‘s Jamie Laing in the famous tent.

Other comedians will be taking part in the programme such as Lee Mack, Aisling Bea, Tim Minchin and Joe Lycett. Additional celebrities including Nick Hewer, Harry Hill, Griff Rhys Jones, Ella Eyre and more have also signed up to the fun.

Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood are coming back to be the judges for the celebrities’ baking skills. 2017’s Bake Off hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig will also return to offer their support and sympathy along the way.

Last year, Sophie Faldo was crowned the winner in the usual GBBO format. She beat Steven Carter-Bailey and Kate Lyon in a tense final.

“I just disbelieve it. The idea of winning was such a minute possibility. I don’t think I’ll forget this for as long as I live.” 

“I have met some brilliant people and I got to the Final. It is beyond anything I have dreamed of. What a privilege.” she said after the result was announced.

Another contestant from the 2017 competition, Liam Charles, has gone on to start co-presenting his own baking show. The nation fell in love with him and were devastated when the 20 year old came fifth last year.

But now it has been announced that he will be presenting Crème de la Crème, now known as Bake Off: The Professionals, alongside comedian Tom Allen.

The Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off will air on Channel 4 later this year.
