Kimberley Walsh, Alison Steadman and Ade Edmonson will also be taking part, as will impressionist Morgana Robinson, Louise Redknapp and former Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls (so at least there’ll be a familiar face for SamCam).
Completing the line-up will be footballers David James, Chris Kamara and Jermaine Jenas, Victoria Coren-Mitchell and news reporter John Simpson.
Presenting duties for the four-part mini-series will be split between Jennifer Saunders, comedians Ed Byrne and Sarah Millican, and regular ‘Bake Off’ host Mel Giedroyc.
The most recent celebrity series of ‘Bake Off’, which aired back in March, saw Victoria Wood, Michael Sheen, Gok Wan and Jennifer Saunders all crowned star bakers.
Meanwhile, the most recent regular ‘Bake Off’ series concluded, with over 13 million people tuning in to watch Nadiya Hussain crowned the winner, which became the most-watched TV moment of 2015.
Thanks to her emotional victory, she’s already become something of a national treasure, and recently bagged her post-‘Bake Off’ media role, writing a baking column in The Times magazine.
