Sarah Lazenby, Channel 4 Head of Formats and Features said: “Stand Up To Cancer has become a force to be reckoned with in the fight against cancer.

"As part of the fundraising campaign this year’s special celebrity editions of Bake Off managed to raise millions of pounds to fund ground breaking cancer trials.

"We hope to do the same again next year with our brilliant line up of famous bakers – all of whom bring their unique skills to the infamous tent. Expect some great bakes, a dollop of disasters, and lots and lots of laughs.”

Kieran Smith, Bake Off's Executive Producer added: “All of us have been affected by cancer in some way or other and Love are proud to once again partner with Stand Up To Cancer.

"We hope the prospect of 20 famous bakers sweating it out in our famous white tent proves hugely entertaining, but most importantly helps raise vital funds for a very worthwhile cause.”

The first ever Celebrity Bake Off on Channel 4 aired in 2018.

Celebs who took part included comedian Harry Hill, Spandau Ballet's Martin Kemp, actor and writer Roisin Conaty, veteran broadcaster Bill Turnbull, Countdown's Nick Hewer, singer and TV personality Stacey Solomon, The Kaiser Chiefs' Ricky Wilson and dance troupe Diversity's Perri Kiely.

The Great British Bake Off's latest main series - its tenth overall - will air later in 2019.
