Our beloved Great British Bake Off is back and this time with a celebrity twist! In a Comic Relief Special, this mini-series, running from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th January 2013, sees 12 celebs battle it out to be crowned the Celebrity Bake Off champ.
Four groups of celebrities will compete in a series of heats before the final 4 are put to the test by baking pros Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.
Meet the celebrities
The first round of celebrities are a big bunch of comedians including Jo Brand, Stephen K Amos and comedy double act Lorna Watson and Ingrid Oliver – there’s sure to be plenty of baking innuendos thrown around the kitchen that day!
The second show sees Life’s Too Short star, Warwick Davis, the Dragon himself, Duncan Bannatyne and presenters Andy Akinwolere and Simon Reeve battle it out – we wonder how they’ll all cope under the pressure – let’s hope Paul and Mary go easy on them!
Round three includes Paralympic gold medallist Ellie Simmonds, presenters Julia Bradbury and Kirsty Wark along with comedian Bob Mortimer – we have a feeling Ellie is going to win gold in baking too!
Last but not least, Strictly Come Dancing presenter, Claudia Winkleman, stand-up comedian Ed Byrne, Olympian Helen Glover and journalist Martha Kearney. It’s going to be a good’un!
Make sure you don’t miss it!
Great British Bake Off Celebrity Comic Relief Special, BBC2, Monday 21st January (8:30pm), Tuesday 22nd – Thursday 24th January (8:00pm)
