A new batch of famous faces will enter the Bake Off tent this spring in aid of Stand Up To Cancer as The Great Celebrity Bake Off returns to Channel 4.

Four famous bakers will go head to head in each of the five episodes but at the end of each show, only one can be decorated with the title Star Baker.

The 20 celebrities taking part are:

  • Comedian and creator of Taskmaster Alex Horne

  • international broadcaster Annie Mac

  • actor and children’s author Ben Miller

  • actor Blake Harrison

  • broadcaster Clara Amfo

  • award-winning comedian and podcaster Ed Gamble

  • singer-songwriter and UN Environment Ambassador’ Ellie Goulding

  • TV presenter Emma Willis

  • singer-songwriter Example

  • choirmaster and broadcaster Gareth Malone

  • actress Katherine Kelly

  • TV presenter Laura Whitmore

  • actor, writer and comedian Mawaan Rizwan

  • comedian, writer and TV presenter Ruby Wax

  • TV Presenter Sophie Morgan

  • actress Tracy-Ann Oberman

  • comedian and musician Yung Filly

  • comedian and presenter Matt Lucas (see below)

In a surprise twist, one episode will find Matt Lucas swapping sides of the Bake Off banks. Filling in for a missing baker he finds out what it’s really like to bake under the scrutiny of his fellow presenter Noel Fielding.

Matt said “I was forced to bake by my bosses at the last minute when one of the bakers became unavailable. I can’t tell you how happy I was that my humiliation was caught on camera.”
