Previously we had the delights of James Acaster genuinely losing his mind as he tried to fulfil a number of tasks – amongst other people, of course – and this time, the cast is second to none.
The likes of James Buckley – who played Jay in The Inbetweeners – and Louis Theroux – who played the park ranger in 1997’s Take a Peak – will be competing with their cakes and many, many more.
An eclectic bunch.
Speaking of the charity special, Channel 4 head of formats and features Sarah Lazenby said:
“The Great Celebrity Bake Off is a key ingredient in our Stand Up to Cancer recipe. We’ve seen the power of using comedy and entertainment to bring awareness and raise millions of pounds to fund pioneering cancer trials.
“We hope viewers will enjoy this year’s line-up of famous bakers, there’s never a dough moment as each bring something fresh and exciting to the tent.“
You’ll be able to watch the Stand up the Cancer charity specials of The Great British Bake Off later this year.
