Celebrity Great British Bake Off 2023 announced - full list including David Schwimmer and Gemma Collins
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Great British Bake Off has announced the celebrity line-up for its Stand Up To Cancer specials this year. A total of 20 celebrities will descend on the tent to show off their culinary talents and raise money for cancer research when the much-loved show returns in 2023.
The show will see Noel Fielding hosting alongside Matt Lucas for the last time, while judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will be back to cast a critical eye on the celebrity’s efforts. The show will air on Channel 4 later this year and see the stars presented with traditional Bake Off tasks, preparing a signature bake and technical challenge, before going to tackle the Showstopper.
Matt Lucas recently announced he won’t be back to co-host the next series of the main show with Noel Fielding, after struggling to balance his demanding work schedule. He said: “Farewell Bake Off - it’s been a delicious experience and I can’t imagine a more fun way of spending my summers, but it’s become clear to me I can’t present both Fantasy Football League and Bake Off alongside my other projects.
“I wish whoever takes over all the very best and I can’t wait to tune into the next series without already knowing who won,” he added. The last season of Bake Off’s Stand Up to Cancer episodes aired in March last year, with Emma Willis, Gareth Malone, Example, Ben Miller and Ellie Goulding emerging as the Star Bakers of 2022.
