And The Next Big Star Of The Great British Bake Off Is… Samantha Cameron

We're looking forward to seeing what she whips up in the kitchen...

If there’s anything we love more than The Great British Bake Off, it’s celebrity charity specials of The Great British Bake Off – and the stellar cast for the Sports Relief special has just been announced.

Prime Minister David Cameron’s wife, Samantha, will be taking to the screen to show us what she can do with some delicious ingredients.

And Sam Cam is just one of 16 big names taking part in the show, with others in the line-up including singers Kimberley Walsh, Geri Horner and Will Young, actors Ade Edmondson and Alison Steadman, and former Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls (who we can’t wait to see make some homemade ice cream).

Other stars taking part include Jason Manford, Louise Redknapp, Victoria Coren-Mitchell – and from the world of football, there’s David James, Chris Kamara and Jermaine Jonas, too.

The usual judges, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, will be scrutinising the desserts, while every episode will be presented by a different host, either Jennifer Saunders, Ed Byrne, Mel Giedroyc or Sarah Millican.

Ed Balls, Geri Halliwell and Chris Kamara all in a room together, getting competitive over sponge cake? Now this we can’t wait to see.

We only have to wait till early 2016 till the show airs, so not long to go now.

What do you think of the line-up? Let us know @marieclaireuk
