Look at This Year's Star-Studded Comic Relief Bake Off Lineup

All the Comic Relief stuff is getting into full swing at the moment, with celebrities lining up to do their bit. While some, like Davina McCall and John Bishop, nearly defy the odds with their physical feats, others have, well, an easier time of it baking the odd cake or two.

But look! It's all a good cause and this lot will definitely make for an entertaining bunch in the Bake Off kitchen. Running over four weeks, each episode will see different batch of celebrities testing their baking skills with Mel & Sue, Ed Byrne and Jo Brand each taking it in turn to host an episode.

Joining judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood in the first episode will be the Absolutely Fabulous Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders, along with Lulu and Dame Edna who will all have to bake a giant biscuit and create a signature chocolate cake inspired by a memorable event.

While the second week will see Jonathan Ross, Gok Wan, Zoella and Abbey Clancy make their best efforts with cupcakes and a marble cake in the shape of their favourite building. We're hoping Jonathan does the ITV building.


The third episode will feature Sarah Brown, David Mitchell, Michael Sheen and Jameela Jamil who will be baking shortbread and a three layered pavlova.

While the final episode then will see Victoria Wood, Alexa Chung, Chris Moyles and Kayvan Novak compete in making a 'selfie vegetable cake', however that will go.

We had our own series of baking recently. Did you miss it? Find the first yumlicious edition here!
