The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer

Whip out your whisks and butter your bun tins, The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer returns to Channel 4 this spring with brand new episodes – and I’ve joined the celebrity bakers to attempt to impress Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with my baking skills.

I haven’t baked anything in my life. Apart from a baked potato. Hopefully, that experience will stand me in good stead.

Stand Up To Cancer UK, the joint national fundraising campaign between Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK, has celebrated a decade of partnership which has now raised more than £113m to fund life-saving cancer research.

For me, it’s quite a big thing to be here, because I am recovering from Head and Neck cancer, and it was a very challenging journey. Years ago, people didn’t survive what I had. The research that has gone into it is the reason I’m alive. So doing this show is obviously very emotional, and I feel very lucky to be here.

The five new episodes will be available to watch and stream on Channel 4 later this year.
