The Bake Off tent is returning to Channel 4 again this spring, with a host of celebrity contestants putting their skills to the test in The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer – a joint campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4. 

“One in two people born in the UK will get cancer in their lifetime, so it doesn’t matter if you aren’t a whizz in the kitchen, the important thing is raising money to help speed up research and save lives.” – Prue Leith, Bake Off Judge

Whether you’ve taken up baking in lockdown or your creations were already handshake-worthy, Stand Up To Cancer has everything you need to stay cool in the kitchen. The range is now available to buy online on the Stand Up To Cancer website, with 100% of profits going to Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. 

The products will also be available at Next. Aspiring bakers can also download a free fundraising pack full of tips, recipes and COVID-19-safe ideas to get friends and family involved. 

“I always enjoy being part of these special episodes for Stand Up To Cancer and I hope the show will inspire viewers to give baking a try,” said Prue, who will be joined by Paul and Matt this spring for 5 special episodes of ‘The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer’.

The latest season features a host of celebrities, including BAFTA winning and Golden Globe nominated actor James McAvoy, Little Mix Star Jade Thirlwall, Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes, broadcaster Nick Grimshaw, documentary maker and author Stacey Dooley, comedian Rob Beckett and singer-songwriter Alexandra Burke
