The Great British Bake Off is back in celebrity form as part of Sport Relief UK 2014. From Olympic champ Victoria Pendleton to Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner, the famous faces taking part in this year’s Bake Off challenge are a varied lot.
Not only will there be celebs competing for the title, there will also be different stars hosting the show too including comedian Jo Brand.
The Great Sport Relief Bake Off Starts on Monday 13th January at 8.30pm on BBC Two. Click through to see all the famous faces taking part…
The celebs are broken into four groups of four to battle in the famous Bake Off tent. This batch sees an Olympian, a judge, a TV presenter and an actress roll up their sleeves and get messy…
Lets reminisce about the good old days of the London Olympics when we got to watch Greg Rutherford in action throwing himself around in the long jump. This athlete now wants to try his skills out in the kitchen – we wonder if he’ll spring his way through to the final?
Scottish TV and radio presenter Kirsty Young is next in the line up of Bake Off celebs. She may be a pro when it comes to presenting but will she be able to cut it in the Bake Off tent or will see knead a helping hand? (see what we did there?!)
We just love quirky actress Jane Horrocks. She’s best known for playing Bubble in Absolutely Fabulous – and we can’t wait to see her in action on the Bake Off. Let’s hope she’s been practising her technique for avoiding a soggy bottom!
From judging to being judged, we wonder how Dancing On Ice’s Jason Gardiner is going to cope impressing Bake Off judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. Will he crack under the pressure or dance his way through?
From a Saturdays’ singer to a Blue Peter presenter, this second group of bakers sees the battle heat up in the tent but will they crack under pressure?
Best known for singing in the band The Saturdays and being married to Marvin Humes from JLS, Rochelle is ready to crack some eggs and whisk up a storm in the Bake Off battle.
We’re hoping Alistair McGowan will be pulling out all the stops to win over Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, maybe he’ll even try and do an impression of them both – he is an impressionist and comedian after all!
If you’re looking for someone entertaining to watch in the kitchen then let it be Blue Peter’s Helen Skelton – especially as she’s already admitted that she’s rubbish at baking. What are Paul and Mary going to say ….?
Comedian and actress Doon Mackichan looks ready for action! With her apron on and graters in hand (we’re not sure what that’s all about?!), we think Doon is going to give this competition her all.
And in this round we meet 2 singers, 1 Olympic cycler, 1 broadcaster and cultural commentator….and a partridge in a pear tree… okay, we’re only joking about the partridge!
Victoria Pendleton has ditched the bike for a piping bag and whisk instead. It’s great to see former Olympic champ back on our screens (here we go reminiscing about the 2012 Olympics again!) We wonder if she’ll be winning the gold medal in baking too?
Jamelia may be a great singer, but has she got the talent to be a great baker? Well there’s only one way to find out really. We think she’s going to be a superstar! (Superstar is the name of one of her most popular songs, just in case you didn’t get the reference!)
Actor, singer, radio and TV presenter Michael Ball is giving baking a go – maybe he aims to add ‘Bake Off champ’ to his impressive résumé. We’re sure he’ll pull out all the stops to impress judges Mary and Paul.
It’s not often that the Bake Off has a broadcaster and cultural commentator under it’s roof. And it looks as though Emma Freud is taking this challenge pretty seriously too… or not!
Get ready to meet two Vaughan’s, a Wright and a Bond. We think this episode is sure to be a treat…
It’s Bonnie Wright aka Ginny Weasley in the Bake Off tent – we’re so excited! We just love all the Harry Potter films and we’re very excited to see one of its cast baking away on our screens – what more could you want?!
Capital FM radio presenter Johnny Vaughan is next on the Bake Off line up. We’re loving his hat and have a strange feeling that he’s going to be rather comical to watch.
Cricketer Michael Vaughan is back on our screens. This time he’s ditched the pearly whites and the dancing outfits (from his time on Strictly Come Dancing, of course!) and has opted for an apron and a rather large KitchenAid.
