Channel 4 has announced a new, uniform in shape and size batch of celebrities for Stand Up To Cancer’s Great Celebrity Bake Off, and it may just be the best batch ever. There’s Oscar-winner Richard Dreyfuss, documentarian (and unintentional heartthrob) Louis Theroux, Queer Eye’s Tan France... the list goes on. 20 stars in total will enter the tent along with Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith for a five-part series, as well as Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig who will host. And whilst you may be wondering how good Judge Rinder will be at taking criticism from Paul Hollywood, and whose shirt will make more of a statement between Noel or Tan France, there’s one more important question: what will everyone’s signature bake be? We make our predictions for each one entering the tent this March.
