A line up of celebrities for Great British Bake Off's All Star edition have been confirmed.

Just like when it was on BBC One, the Great British Bake Off on Channel 4 will see a number of celebrity shows for charity.

During its time on the BBC, Bake Off aired specials for both Sport Relief and Comic Relief while Channel 4's charity version will be in aid of Stand Up For Cancer.

Today, Channel 4 has revealed the cast of celebrities taking part.

The Great British Bake Off celebrity specials are expected to air from March on Channel 4.

The Celebrity editions will follow the first main series of Great British Bake Off which aired last autumn on Channel 4.

It was the first series in a new three year deal with the channel after its move from the BBC One, and proved a hit with over 10 million viewers for the final.

Restaurateur, food writer and novelist Prue Leith will be joining Paul Hollywood as judge while Sandi Toksvig OBE and Noel Fielding will host the show.

While there may be some new faces, everything else remained the same from the tent to the innuendo.

Channel 4's episodes of Bake Off will run for 75 minutes, albeit with adverts, while The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice also returned with Jo Brand staying as host.
