After she was announced in the line up, Jade has since given fans a sneak peek at her baking skills, which leave a little to be desired.

She wrote on Instagram: “I can’t tell you how gagged I am to be on @britishbakeoff, swipe for some of my previous baking adventures.”

Some of her creations include a ‘grassy hill,’ and a unicorn cake, as she added: “If I was on Bake Off right now, I think I’d get a handshake off Paul Hollywood.”

Speaking about the return of the special show, Sarah Lazenby, Head of Formats and Features at Channel 4, said: "What we all need right now is more joy.

"Bake Off is serving up yet another dollop of fun courtesy of some very willing celebrities.

"We can't promise a huge helping of baking inspiration, but we can deliver some much-needed laughs."
