I hope you are all well. Doesn’t this winter feel like it’s going on forever? The memory of summer in the Bake Off tent feels so distant. But don’t worry because on the 6th March Prue, Sandi, Noel & I are back in the tent for five special episodes of The Great British Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer.
Each episode sees four different celebrities try and impress us with their baking skills, as Prue and I set exciting new baking challenges; pushing them to their baking limits. Each episode we will award one of the bakers the coveted star baker apron.
The first four bakers in the tent are comedian Harry Hill, Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp, actress and writer Roisin Conaty and veteran broadcaster Bill Turnbull. The first challenge is a bake sale classic – cupcakes. The technical challenge is fiery, and there’s a demanding showstopper challenge – a 3D biscuit scene recreating the best day of their life.
These amazing celebrities are all baking to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer and I hope that they inspire you to do the same. Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 to accelerate ground breaking cancer research and save more lives, more quickly. You guys can also get involved in The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer fundraising challenge and raise money for ground breaking research that will save lives.
