What's been said about the series?

Sarah Lazenby, Channel 4 Head of Formats and Features said: "Stand Up To Cancer has become a force to be reckoned with in the fight against cancer.

"As part of the fundraising campaign this year’s special celebrity editions of Bake Off managed to raise millions of pounds to fund ground breaking cancer trials. "We hope to do the same again next year with our brilliant line up of famous bakers – all of whom bring their unique skills to the infamous tent. Expect some great bakes, a dollop of disasters, and lots and lots of laughs."
