Star – quite literally – bakers enter the illustrious Bake Off tent for a good laugh and a great cause
By Laura Rutkowski, Staff Writer
Celebrity Bake Off is back and bound to be a barrel of loafs as a host of famous figures compete in the fundraising event for Stand Up To Cancer. As ever, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood will be on hand to judge the contestants’ bakes with their discerning palates, with Sandi Toksvig (for the final time, *SOBS*) and Noel Fielding co-hosting and providing well-meaning distractions.
In each episode of the five-part series, four celebrities will cake it till they make it across three challenges – the Signature, Technical and Showstopper. Louis Theroux, Tan France, Carol Vorderman, Kelly Brook and Ovie Soko are among the 20 big names who have signed on to showcase their skills. But have they got what it bakes? Will they be glazed and confused? Or will their dreams of winning just be a pie in the sky?
Unlike the main Bake Off, there’s no overall winner. But check out our rankings below to see who and what we think will be a recipe for success. While you’re at it, why not play along with our Bake Off bingo card?
