In each episode four celebrities join hosts Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding, all wanting to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with their baking skills.

As always, at the end of the night only one celebrity was awarded with the coveted star baker apron.

The final four famous faces being ushered into the Bake Off tent were TV presenter Carol Vorderman, TV judge Rob Rinder, comedian Mo Gilligan and radio and TV presenter Kelly Brook.

The celebrity bakers took on three challenges set by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.

This week the pair's three tricky tasks started with a signature sandwich biscuit. The celebrity contestants then tackled their technical - cream and jam filled iced buns - which saw Carol come out on top when Prue and Paul judged the bakes blind.

For the showstopper, the celebs had to make a 3D guilty pleasure cake. Rob created a tribute to Jackie Collins' novels, for Kelly it was a naked bubble bath cake, Mo created a trainer cake and a Carol made a champagne bath cake.

Prue and Paul then retired to decide their winner before announcing Carol as this week's star baker.

The bakers are standing up to the challenges, and to cancer, and inspiring viewers to do the same.
