The five Celebrity Bake Off episodes will be presented by Alison Hammond, who recently joined the programme after Matt Lucas’ departure, and Noel Fielding.

Alison, who previously appeared on the celeb version of the show, said: ‘“I’m totally in awe of this year’s celebrity bakers, all putting their baking skills, or in some cases lack of, under nationwide scrutiny to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer.

‘And as someone who proved to be something of a baking genius when I baked in the tent a few years ago, I was delighted to be able to show them the ropes and where the oven doors were. On your mark, get set, Bake for Stand Up To Cancer.’

Dame Prue, meanwhile, teased that the show will be a ‘delicious dose of fun, sprinkled with some unforgettable baking moments.’

‘Brace yourself for a delectable lineup of bakers, each with their own unique flair in the kitchen – some are, admittedly, a bit more flour-savvy than others,’ she added.

Previous Celebrity Bake Off line-ups have included the likes of Friends legend David Schwimmer, Towie queen Gemma Collins and Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson.
