The official Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer 2021 line-up is here and boasts of some of the biggest names in showbiz – including a Little Mix singer and an actual Star Wars Jedi.
The brand new series is set to air across five episodes in the spring and will see 20 celebrities doing their best to impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, while host Matt Lucas will be ‘keeping time and spirits up’.
Each instalment will see four stars battle it out over three rounds – the Signature, the Technical and the Showstopper – in a bid to be crowned Star Baker.
