The Great British Celebrity Bake Off! Stars Set To Show Of Culinary Skills In Show

For Comic Relief

Whilst they may be good at what they do in their own disciplines, a selection of celebrities are soon set to show their worth in the kitchen when they take part in a celebrity special of the hit BBC show, Great British Bake-Off.

The show, which tasks people with baking challenges, will be returning to our screens for a special Comic Relief version.

Under the watchful eye of judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, celebrities including Claudia Winkleman, Jo Brand and Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds will be putting their baking skills to the test.

Speaking about the challenge that awaits her, The Sun reports TV presenter Claudia saying:

"I often cover the kitchen in flour. I have only ever made TWO things — a Victoria sponge and chocolate cookies. It turns out the Bake Off is about other things too.”

Duncan Bannatyne - star of Dragon's Den - who will also be appearing on the show, added:

“It may surprise some people but I actually enjoy cooking. Baking is something I have never really done before but wanted to try.”

We can't wait to see how the celebrities get on!

The Comic Relief special of the Great British Bake Off will air later this month. Will you be watching?
