Celebrity Bake Off 2020 line-up – all the stars in series three

CELEBRITY Bake Off 2020 sees another all-star cast battling it out to be the top baker.

A total of twenty celebs, including everyone from YouTube and Love Island stars to opera legends, signed up to get their hands dirty and risk the wrath of judges, Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.

Who is in the Celebrity Bake Off 2020 line-up?

Week 1

Louis Theroux

Filmmaker Louis has made a formidable name producing hard-hitting documentaries, asking the questions others don't and going places others won't.

He's filmed from a Miami jail, a paedophile hospital and with members of the Westboro Baptist Church.

And he's made famous scenes with Jimmy Savile and Max Clifford.

But despite that, has he got what it takes to survive in the Bake Off tent?

Jenny Eclair

The stand-up comedian has had her fair share of reality TV, appearing on ITV's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and diving competition Splash!.

This time round we'll see her try her hand at baking on the show.

But will she live up to her surname and deliver some top buns.

Ovie Soko

Professional basketball player Ovie made his name on ITV2's Love Island in 2019, where he became a national heartthrob with his charming personality and devastatingly good looks.

We'll see how Ovie copes as he swaps his basketball for an apron.

Russell Howard

Russell Howard is a staple on British TV, starting his career on Mock The Week, before he was given his own show on BBC Three called Russell Howard's Good News in 2009.

The former Taskmaster contestant also hosts The Russell Howard Hour on Sky 1.

He has since appeared in BBC Two's White Gold, I Feel Bad and Zapped, plus played Nevi in Doctor Who.

In 2020 it was revealed that she was one of the mystery voices on ITV's The Masked Singer.

Scarlett Moffatt

Scarlett has had an illustrious reality TV career, starting out on Channel 4's Gogglebox.

Week 3

Johanna Konta

The professional tennis player is currently the number one singles player in Great Britain.

He also appeared in Taylor Swift's hit single You Need To Calm Down.

Week 4

Joe Sugg

Joe made his name as a YouTube sensation, but most people will know him for being the runner-up on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 and the 2019 Christmas edition of the show.

After having victory snatched from his grasp on two occasions, maybe he will have more luck on Celebrity Bake Off this time around.

Alison also launched her career through reality TV, appearing on the third series of Big Brother in 2002.

Nowadays, she is a regular on This Morning, and has appeared on Celebrity MasterChef.

She'll be hoping to have picked up some skills on the cooking show to give her an edge over the other contestants in the tent.

He has also appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, finishing fifth in the 2016 series of the show.
