Sir Mo Farah and Ellie Goulding amongst the new celebs taking part in Celebrity Bake Off 2022

The new series of The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer starts this spring on Channel 4.


Each episode will see four celebrity bakers compete in three rounds – the signature, technical and showstopper challenges, all hoping to impress Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with their brilliant bakes and culinary creations. But at the end of each show, only one can be decorated with the coveted Star Baker apron.


The series is in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 that brings the UK together to speed up progress in life-saving research. Since its launch in the UK in 2012, Stand Up To Cancer has raised over £93 million, funding 59 clinical trials and projects involving 19,000 cancer patients across the country

In a surprise twist, after one unnamed baker becomes unavailable, Bake Off host Matt Lucas will swap sides and fill in for a missing baker as he finds out what it’s really like to bake under the scrutiny of his fellow presenter Noel Fielding.


Speaking about the twist, Matt Lucas said "I was forced to bake by my bosses at the last minute when one of the bakers became unavailable. I can’t tell you how happy I was that my humiliation was caught on camera."
