The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer

The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer

Series 3 - Episode 3



The phrase “My dogs are exploding!” isn’t one you’d ever expect to cross the lips of British tennis player Johanna Konta, or anyone else for that matter.

But Konta is in mock despair after her showstopper challenge starts to go, as she puts it, “tits up”. Again, not a phrase you’d expect to hear from JK.

It’s the most riotous episode of the Stand Up to Cancer specials so far (there are two more to go) as Caroline Quentin, Joel Dommett, Tan France and Konta try to impress with their eclairs in the opening signature round.

Quentin, who cheerfully admits she is not a baker, tells us: “I tried to rise to the occasion but I think I sank beneath the occasion.”

But everyone rallies for the technical, despite incredulous laughter and shouts of “Oh no!”


Queer Eye's Tan France, actress Caroline Quentin, comedian Joel Dommett and British tennis number one Johanna Konta take part in the charity culinary challenge, under the watchful eye of hosts Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding and judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith. For the signature challenge, they must prepare a batch of classic eclairs, while the technical round will test their skills with puff pastry. Finally, for the showstopper challenge, they must immortalise their greatest fear in cake form.
