The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer Series 4
The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off returns as more celebrities enter the Tent to put their baking skills to the test. Across five episodes 20 famous faces, from the worlds of entertainment, sport, music and film, roll up their sleeves and switch on their mixers to do their bit in the fight against cancer. Judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood skilfully and meticulously judge each bake whilst host Matt Lucas is on hand, keeping time and spirits up.
Each episode sees four celebrities battle it out over three challenges – the Signature, the Technical and the Showstopper – showing off their baking prowess in a bid to be awarded the coveted Star Baker apron.
First up are Star Wars actor Daisy Ridley, comedian Rob Beckett, popstar Alexandra Burke and comedian Tom Allen. They tackle millionaire shortbread in the Signature, a fruity tart in the Technical and create their pet hates in cake form in an ambitious Showstopper.
In the second episode, actor James McAvoy, popstar Anne-Marie, comedian David Baddiel and Olympian Dame Kelly Holmes attempt to make Signature decorative tarts, a savoury Technical and render their spirit animals in cake in the Showstopper.
In the third episode, Matt Lucas is joined by MC Dizzee Rascal, radio DJ Nick Grimshaw, psychiatrist and author Philippa Perry and comedian Reece Shearsmith. In a bid to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, the bakers make vegetable slices for their Signature Challenge, attempt a right royal Technical and, in the Showstopper, bake a ‘selfie’ of themselves at work made entirely from biscuit.
Journalist and presenter Stacey Dooley, Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall, internet personality KSI and comedian Katherine Ryan enter the tent in the fourth episode. In the Signature Challenge they’re asked to make cocktail-flavoured fondant fancies, they have their pastry skills tested in the Technical and, in the Showstopper, they create a scene showing the judges something they can’t live without, all from biscuit and meringue.
In the fifth and final episode of the series, TV presenter Anneka Rice, comedian John Bishop, popstar Nadine Coyle and sportsman and TV presenter Ade Adepitan are welcomed into the Tent. Under the watchful eye of Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, the celebrity bakers attempt decorative choux buns in the Signature, tackle financiers in the Technical and finally make a showstopping cake that represents something from their bucket list.
