Great British Bake Off is back for another charity fundraising celebrity edition and the first contestants to face the scrutiny of judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry have been named.

Through the Cakehole star Jo Brand, stand-up comedian Stephen K Amos and TV double act Lorna Watson and Ingrid Oliver will be baking their little socks off on your telly screen when the Comic Relief specials start later this month.

The makers of the show have said that they're "looking for people with genuine passion for baking, not just those who want to raise their profiles", according to Metro gossip columnist Neil Sean.  

Whether Brand's black forest cake, the flourless chocolate and stem ginger cake by Amos, Watson's white chocolate and raspberry cake and Oliver's lady grey tea and lavender shortbread live up to that ambition remains to be seen.

Challenges will include Signature Bake shortbreads, technical Bake custard slices and Showstopper Bake chocolate cakes. 

No Sue Perkins for this series, so presenter Mel Giedroyc will be going it alone this time. 

* Catch Great British Bake Off's Comic Relief specials from Monday 21 January, 8pm on BBC2.
