The Great Sport Relief Bake Off returns for 2016! The four-part series will be stripped across four weeks and broadcast on BBC One from Wednesday 27th January.
Judged by legendary cookery writer Mary Berry and acclaimed Master Baker Paul Hollywood, the series will see 16 celebrities compete in the ultimate baking battle, all to raise as much cash as possible for Sport Relief. Guest presenters Jennifer Saunders, Sarah Millican, Ed Byrne and resident Bake Off presenter Mel Giedroyc will host one episode each.
Each 60 minute episode will see four celebrity bakers put their signature, technical and showstopper bakes under the spotlight in a bid to be declared Sport Relief Star Baker. This year's celebrity lineup includes Ade Edmondson, Alison Steadman, Chris Kamara, David James, Ed Balls, Geri Horner, Jason Manford, Jermaine Jenas, John Simpson, Kimberley Walsh, Louise Redknapp, Maddy Hill, Morgana Robinson, Samantha Cameron, Victoria Coren-Mitchell and Will Young.
The series will also follow presenter Clare Balding as she visits a number of Comic Relief projects in Kenya and Olympic gold medallist Denise Lewis, who visits a UK project, to show how the money raised this Sport Relief will make a massive difference to people living incredibly tough lives, across the world’s poorest communities and here at home in the UK.
