breakingnews.ie– Ex-Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle is among the twenty celebrities who have signed up for The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer.

Derry-born Coyle is already well-known for her kitchen skills – a clip of her discussing cookery went viral on social media in 2018.

“I enjoy cooking, baking and stuff, working with flour,” she said on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, with Twitter users commenting on her pronunciation of flour.

Also hoping to impress with their baking skills in the Channel 4 programme will be Scottish actor James McAvoy, actress Daisy Ridley, TV presenter Stacey Dooley, double Olympic champion Kelly Holmes, actor and comedian John Bishop, comedian and presenter Tom Allen, author and TV star David Baddiel and Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall.

The list of celebrity participants also includes YouTuber and musician KSI, Paralympian Ade Adepitan, author and psychotherapist Philippa Perry, radio DJ Nick Grimshaw and comedian Rob Beckett.

Former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke, TV star Anneka Rice, actor Reece Shearsmith, musician Dizzee Rascal, as well as singer Anne-Marie and comedian Katherine Ryan are also all on board.

Each episode will see four celebrities battle it out over three rounds – the Signature, the Technical and the Showstopper – in a bid to be crowned Star Baker.

Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood will be judging the bakes while host Matt Lucas will also return to the tent “keeping time and spirits up”.

Across five episodes, due to air in the spring, the celebrities will be doing their bit in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4.

Sarah Lazenby, head of formats and features at Channel 4, said: “What we all need right now is more joy. Bake Off is serving up yet another dollop of fun courtesy of some very willing celebrities.

“It has been a difficult year for charities and we sincerely hope that this series will offer a lot of fun, but also some much-needed funds in the fight against cancer.”

Stand Up To Cancer has raised more than £62 million (€70 million), funding 55 clinical trials and projects involving 11,000 cancer patients across Britain and Ireland, Channel 4 said.
