Channel 4 has announced this year’s line-up for The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer, which features veteran actor Richard Dreyfuss.
The Jaws and Stand by Me star will be joined in the tent by 19 other famous faces, including documentarian Louis Theroux, British tennis player Johanna Konta and singer-songwriter James Blunt.
The five-part series will return in 2020, with four celebrities battling for the Star Baker crown over three rounds – the Signature, the Technical and the Showstopper.
