‘Great British Bake Off’ Gets Political For 2016 ‘Sport Relief’ | TV News
Samantha Cameron, wife of Prime Minister David Cameron, will be donning her best ‘pinny’ when she competes in next year’s Great Sport Relief Bake Off. ‘Sam Cam’ will go up against Labour politician Ed Balls in the cookery competition. Other celebrities hoping to avoid a “soggy bottom” are singers Will Young, Louise Redknapp, Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh and former Spice Girl Geri Horner aka Geri Halliwell. They’ll be joined by stand up comedian Jason Manford and impressionist Morgana Robinson.
Actresses Alison Steadman and Eastenders‘ Maddy Hill will also be hoping to cook up a storm, while quiz-master Victoria Coren-Mitchell and news correspondent John Simpson will be bringing their brain-power to the Bake Off. And the world of sport will be represented by Chris Kamara, David James and Jermaine Jenas.
Sport Relief takes place from March 18 – 20, 2016, and the series will feature 4 hour-long episodes to raise money for the charity. Bake Off presenter Mel Giedroyc and comedians Sarah Millican, Ed Byrne and Jennifer Saunders will each host an episode. Saunder’s husband Ade Edmondson, Vyvyan in the sitcom The Young Ones, will also be taking part. The mighty Mary Berry will be back to judge the Bake Off.
