The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer Series 5
The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off returns as more celebrities enter the tent to put their baking skills to the test and raise awareness for Stand Up To Cancer.
Hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas are at the helm as the celebrity bakers take on three challenges set by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith in a bid to impress with their culinary creations and claim the winner's apron. Four famous faces go head-to-head in each of the five episodes but, at the end of each show, only one can be decorated with the Star Baker title.
First up are TV presenter Emma Willis, Radio One DJ Clara Amfo, Inbetweeners actor Blake Harrison and comedian Alex Horne. The celebrities tackle decorated biscuits in the Signature, madeleines in the Technical and create a choux sculpture that embodies their secret talent in an ambitious Showstopper.
In the second episode, Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas welcome comedian Ruby Wax, the TV personality and singing coach Gareth Malone, TV presenter Laura Whitmore and social media star Yung Filly into the nation’s favourite tent. The celebrity bakers are challenged to make Signature fruit turnovers, a chocolate fondant Technical and relive their most embarrassing moment in a meringue Showstopper.
In a surprise twist, the third episode sees Matt Lucas swapping sides of the Bake Off banks to fill in for a missing baker. Alongside DJ Annie Mac, comedian Ed Gamble and rapper Elliot Gleave AKA Example, Matt steps up to attempt Signature stained glass biscuits, a jam-packed Technical and a Showstopper reminding the celebs of what they did before they were famous.
Olympian Mo Farah, Strictly Come Dancing judge Motsi Mabuse, actor Katherine Kelly and comedian Ben Miller enter the tent in the fourth episode. In the Signature Challenge they’re asked to make meringue roulade, they tackle traditional Italian biscuits in the Technical and render a favourite childhood memory in cake form in the Showstopper.
In the fifth and final episode of the series, pop superstar Ellie Goulding, comedian Mawaan Rizwan, TV presenter and disability advocate Sophie Morgan and actor Tracy-Ann Oberman create a marble cake Signature, jam roly-poly in the Technical and finally make a showstopping biscuit portrait in honour of their own celebrity hero.
