FIRST LOOK The Great Celebrity Bake Off 2024

Danny Dyer, Jodie Whittaker, Mel B and Paloma Faith are amongst the celebs taking part in The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer which returns this spring on Channel 4.

It's almost that time of year again where 20 famous faces enter the Bake Off tent to compete for the title of Star Baker while helping fund cancer research.

Over five new episodes hosts Alison Hammond and Noel Fielding will welcome the celebrities into the Bake Off tent, where they will try to impress Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with their baking skills.

Over two days the celebrities will face the signature, technical and showstopper challenges, whilst competing against their cohort in a bid to be crowned Star Baker at the end of their episode.

Amongst the 20 celebrities entering the famous tent this year will be actress Jodie Whittaker, broadcaster and satirist Munya Chawawa, singer and actress Paloma Faith, and broadcaster Spencer Matthews.

Also competing against each other to be crowned Star Baker will be actor Danny Dyer, comedian Leigh Francis, comedian Rhod Gilbert, and presenter and documentary filmmaker Yinka Bokinni.

And when comedian and author David O'Doherty, TV presenter Gabby Logan, TV presenter Oti Mabuse and comedian Suzi Ruffell enter the tent together, who will impress the judgest the most?

There's a familiar face for Alison Hammond in the competition this year as her This Morning co-host Dermot O'Leary enters the tent alongside comedian Fern Brady, presenter and children’s author Greg James, and Spice Girl, TV presenter and patron of Women’s Aid Mel B OBE.

And finally, completing this year's Celebrity Bake Off line-up are comedian & presenter Adam Hills, actor Joe Locke, broadcaster and writer The Reverend Richard Coles, and broadcaster and author Sara Cox.

Alison Hammond, who appeared on the celebrity version of the show before joining the show as host alongside Noel Fielding, 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. On your mark, get set, Bake for Stand Up To Cancer."

To which Dame Prue Leith added "I'm absolutely thrilled to share that we're serving up another delightful season of The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer this spring on Channel 4. Brace yourself for a delectable lineup of bakers, each with their own unique flair in the kitchen – some are, admittedly, a bit more flour-savvy than others!"

"Filming this show was a delicious dose of fun, sprinkled with some unforgettable baking moments. I can't wait for everyone to see it."

The series is in aid of Stand Up To Cancer UK, the joint national fundraising campaign between Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK which has celebrated a decade of partnership, raising millions to fund life-saving cancer research.

All the money raised by Stand Up To Cancer funds translational research, to help take discoveries from the lab and turn them into tests and treatments to benefit patients. Find out more about Stand Up To Cancer and how you can support here.
