Louis Theroux, Ovie Soko, and James Blunt among those confirmed for Celebrity Bake Off

What a squad.

We've been only spoiled with Great British Bake Off specials as of late.


There was the festive special featuring old contestants. There was the Derry Girls special. There was probably more specials but nothing could ever top the latter so let's just leave it there.

Except maybe, just maybe, the upcoming Celebrity Bake Off special in aid of Stand Up For Cancer could do just that.

Because the lineup is quite incredible, in fairness.


The upcoming five part series will see Louis Theroux, Love Island's Ovie Soko, James Blunt, and Richard Dreyfuss among those battling it out to win the coveted title of Star Baker.

Also hitting up the tent to show off their cake-based skills are Queer Eye's Tan France, sportswomen Johanna Konta, Kelly Brook, Caroline Quentin, followed by Alex Jones, Carol Vorderman and Scarlett Moffatt and judge Rob Rinder.

The Inbetweeners' James Buckley, Joe Sugg, Alison Hammond, Patsy Palmer, Mo Gilligan, Russell Howard, Joel Dommett and Jenny Eclair will also be there to bake some treats and have some fun.

You truly do love to see it.

Each episode of the series will see four celebrities battle it out in the tent in the three iconic Bake Off rounds: Signature, Technical, and Showstopper.

"The Great Celebrity Bake Off is a key ingredient in our Stand Up To Cancer recipe," said Sarah Lazenby, head of formats and features at Channel 4.

"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."

Bring it on, tbh.
