The Great Comic Relief Bake Off, a mouthful that is more likely to be referred to as Celebrity Bake Off, has revealed more of the names that will feature in this year's charity special. 

It's essential to knock out a celebrity version of pretty much every vaguely successful bit of programming, so it's unsurprising that a ratings hit like Great British Bake off should get the green room treatment. 

We've now got Olympic and Paralympic champions, a few more funny folk and more telly presenters than you can shake a mic boom at all thrown into the mix and baking their bit for a good cause.

The brief series will run over four nights from 21 January on BBC2, and here's how it will break down:
Actor Jo Brand, comedian Stephen K Amos, telly double act Lorna Watson and Ingrid Oliver 
Signature Bake: shortbread
Technical Bake: custard slice
Showstopper Bake: chocolate cakes

Actor Warwick Davis, BBC Dragon and hotelier Duncan Bannatyne, television presenters Andy Akinwolere and Simon Reeve
Signature Bake: iced biscuits
Technical Bake: Bakewell tarts
Showstopper Bake: gateaux

Paralympic gold medallist Ellie Simmonds, television presenters Kirsty Wark and Julia Bradbury, and comedian Bob Mortimer
Signature Bake: scones
Technical Bake: ├ęclairs
Showstopper Bake: novelty cakes

Film critic and Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman, comedian Ed Byrne, broadcaster and journalist Martha Kearney and Olympic gold medallist Helen Glover
Signature Bake: chocolate biscuits
Technical Bake: lemon meringue pie
Showstopper Bake: birthday cake

Each night a star baker will be picked to compete for the title of Comic Relief Star Baker.
