Episode 4: The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer

Summary

James Blunt, Alison Hammond, Alex Jones and Joe Sugg take part in the charity culinary challenge, under the watchful eye of presenters Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding, and judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith. For the signature round, they must prepare a batch of decorated traybakes, while the technical challenge involves a classic British staple. Finally, for the Showstopper, they must create a scene out of biscuits depicting what they wanted to be when they grew up

Review

Brace yourselves for a disaster-strewn episode – one contestant cuts his finger then faints into the arms of a paramedic, while another somehow smashes her mixing bowl and, yes, cuts her finger. Though she doesn’t faint.

Injuries notwithstanding, this is a very game bunch of celebs of varying (very varying) abilities, who are doing their bit for Stand Up to Cancer. James Blunt, Alex Jones, Alison Hammond and Joe Sugg are a genial lot, to the point where everyone dissolves into helpless giggles during the judging of one particular round in the face of Paul Hollywood’s horrified expressions.

Hammond is particularly confident: “This is just going so well, I am literally a natural baker.” But, literally, is she?

The gang give all the challenges a jolly good go, and there’s a very entertaining showstopper round, with some bizarre but clever 3D biscuit scenes.
