The line-up for The Great British Bake Off's charity special, The Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off, has been announced.

20 stars will gather together as they desperately try to avoid the curse of the soggy bottom and earn the fabled Paul Hollywood handshake.

Each episode will see four celebrities compete over three rounds - the usual signature, technical, and showstopper challenges - in a bid to be crowned Star Baker.

Chatty Man's Alan Carr, Spandau Ballet member turned actor Martin Kemp, Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher, and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson will all compete.

Hollywood and Prue Leith will be back to judge the results, alongside hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig returning to provide the usual commentary. The Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off will air on Channel 4 later this year.
