What time is The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer on TV and how can I watch it?

The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer will return to Channel 4 on Tuesday 9 March at 8pm. 

In classic Bake Off style, each episode will see four celebs battle it out over three challenges – the Signature, the Technical and the Showstopper.

Each of the series’ five episodes will stand alone, so there's no need to watch in order.

The first episode will feature Daisy Ridley, Rob Beckett, Alexandra Burke and Tom Allen.

Episode two will welcome a brand new batch of celebs: James McAvoy, Anne-Marie, David Baddiel and Dame Kelly Holmes.

The celebs will be judged by Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, and fan favourite Matt Lucas will be hosting the show.

Unfortunately, his presenting other half Noel Fielding was on paternity leave when the series was filming, so won't be making an appearance.

Speaking about the return of the Stand Up To Cancer special, 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.

"We can't promise a huge helping of baking inspiration, but we can deliver some much-needed laughs."
