The 16-strong celebrity line up has been announced for this year’s the Great Comic Relief Bake Off.

With the first episode airing on Wednesday, 11 February, on BBC One, celebrities including Jonathan Ross, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley will take to the Bake Off tent.

Mary Berry and baker Paul Hollywood will judge each episode as 4 celebrities go head-to-head in the kitchen.

The celebs will compete in the classic signature, technical and showstopper baking challenges.

The full list of celebrities who will try their hands at the art of baking are: Abbey Clancy, Alexa Chung, Chris Moyles, Dame Edna Everage, David Mitchell, Gok Wan, Jameela Jamil, Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Jonathan Ross, Kayvan Novak, Lulu, Michael Sheen, Sarah Brown, Victoria Wood and YouTube blogger Zoella.

Jonathan Ross said: “I love watching the Bake Off– it’s a fantastic combination of human drama mixed with the real technical challenges of baking. And of course, looking at all the delicious bread and cake is always nice.”

Dame Edna Everage said: “I am a superb baker and I should have had my own catering show years ago. A bit like icing on a cake, I never want to spread myself too thin. The big challenge for me this time was not to humiliate the other contestants by being conspicuously superior.”

The show will also be encouraging viewers to bake at home to raise money for the Comic Relief cause.
