These are all the icons taking part in this year’s Great Celebrity Bake Off

The Stand Up To Cancer specials start in less than two weeks


This year’s Great Celebrity Bake Off line up has been announced and wow, the celebrities taking part are legendary.

The Stand Up To Cancer specials will see a whole host of celebs from singers, actors and Olympic athletes compete in one off specials to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer.

Five episodes are set to air with the first episode on 9th March at 8pm on Channel 4. The celebrities will face the judgement of Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith in the three baking challenges that we usually see on Bake Off. Sadly Noel Fielding will not be hosting the show, so it will be on Matt Lucas’ shoulders to bring the quality entertainment.

These are all the celebs taking part in this year’s Stand Up To Cancer Great Celebrity Bake Off:

The actual queen, Jade Thirlwall is taking part in this year’s Bake Off and what a treat for us all. She could literally set fire to the Bake Off tent and I would still think she’s perfect.

Nick Grimshaw

Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw will also be joining the lineup. Whilst he used to be known for partying with Kate Moss, now Grimmy does loads of charity challenges and appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox last year.

Nadine Coyle

The time has come for us to finally get to see Girls Aloud legend, Nadine Coyle, work with flouyyyyeir again. If you’ve haven’t seen her infamous appearance on Sunday Brunch then please get yourself on YouTube now.

YouTuber KSI is one of the richest under 30s in the UK so it’s nice to see him giving back by baking. Channel 4 are also clearly a big fan of KSI as he appeared in the celebrity Gogglebox specials as well.

Alexandra Burke

Yes she invented the phrase “the elephant in the room” but can Alexandra Burke invent a winning bake?

James McAvoy

James McAvoy has been in a whole host of films including X-Men, Narnia, Deadpool and Atonement. What a career highlight Bake Off will be for him.

Stacey Dooley

Documentary maker and presenter Stacey Dooley has already won one celebrity based talent competition, so I’m sure she’ll have no problem whipping up a cake and scoring the prize on Bake Off.

John Bishop

Comedian John Bishop’s Instagram features a lot of animal pictures, not that this is relevant for Bake Off, but just thought you should know.

Anneka Rice

If TV legend Anneka Rice’s performance on Strictly Come Dancing is anything to go by then I think it’s safe to say Anneka’s baking is going to be disastrous.

Ade Adeptian MBE

TV presenter and wheelchair basketball player Ade has been on our screens for what feels like forever, so it’s a wonder it has taken him this long to get on Celebrity Bake Off.

Dame Kelly Holmes

Dame Kelly Holmes has two gold medals, so making a three tiered cake should be no problem for her.

Rob Beckett

Comedian and Celebs Go Dating voice over Rob Beckett will also be joining the lineup, surely this has got to be better than watching a bunch of z-listers date Rob?

Katherine Ryan

Comedian and actress Katherine Ryan better be baking in the epic outfits she wore in The Duchess otherwise I will be turning off the show.

David Baddiel

Writer and comedian David Baddiel is excellent on Twitter but will he be as skilled baking for Prue and Paul?

Daisy Ridley

Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley will also be joining the celebs in the tent. Star Wars and Bake Off? I don’t think a career could get better than that tbh.

Tom Allen

Comedian Tom Allen usually hosts the Bake Off spin-off show, Extra Slice, alongside Jo Brand and he was the co-host of the Christmas Bake Off specials, so I won’t lie, I think he’s got an unfair advantage here.

Singer Anne-Marie has incredible taste in clothes, but will her taste extend to her bakes?

This is pretty iconic, I just want to see Dizzee get Prue and Paul in a mosh pit now.

Philippa Perry

Philippa Perry is a psychotherapist and author. She’s also part of the incredibly talented Perry family, so I expect great things from her.

Reece Shearsmith

Does anyone know who this guy is? Turns out he’s an actor who’s been in a bunch of stuff that my un-educated self has never heard of.
