What Is The Great Celebrity Bake Off?

The celebrity offshoot of Great British Bake Off sees a group of 20 celebrities competing in a series of baking challenges, just like we see in the original version. Over a two-day period, the contestants take part in the signature, technical and showstopper challenges, hoping to be crowned star baker. The show helps raise money for Stand Up To Cancer UK, the national fundraising campaign dedicated to life-saving cancer research.

The Great Celebrity Bake Off 2024 will be spread across five episodes, with Alison Hammond and Noel Fielding returning as hosts, alongside Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith as the judges.

Previous winners have included Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson, Friends star David Schwimmer and TOWIE’s Gemma Collins.

Hammond – who appeared on Celebrity Bake Off before joining as host – said: ‘I’m totally in awe of this year’s celebrity bakers, all putting their baking skills, or in some cases lack of, under nationwide scrutiny to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer. And as someone who proved to be something of a baking genius [sic] when I baked in the tent a few years ago, I was delighted to be able to show them the ropes and where the oven doors were.’
