The Great British Bake Off's star-studded spin-off, Celebrity Bake Off is officially landing on screens next month, and now we have an exact date for the launch.

The celebrity TV special is set to begin on Tuesday, 9th March on Channel 4, with episodes running at 8pm each week, for five weeks.


As is always the case for the celeb editions, we'll see four stars battle it out each week over three challenges - the Signature Challenge, the Technical Challenge and the Showstopper, just like in the main show.

There are no losers (seeing as it is for charity), and the winner is crowned Star Baker of their episode.

In case you need a reminder, there is a pretty impressive line up this time around.

From Hollywood actors to Olympic and Paralympic sports stars there are a whole bunch of famous faces to please everyone.

Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley and X Men star James McAvoy will kick off the five-part series, while other celebs set to take part include Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes, Little Mix's Jade Thirwall and comedian John Bishop.

Plus, Nadine Coyle and comedian Katherine Ryan will give the showstopper challenge a go. We'd like to see what they come up with.

TV presenter and former Strictly winner Stacey Dooley will also try her hand at baking in the celeb special, alongside Alexandra Burke, Nick Grimshaw and Paralympian Ade Adepitan.

We're sure to be treated to lots of comedy along the way with Rob Beckett, David Baddiel and Tom Allen bringing the laughs.
