A brand new season of Celebrity Bake Off begins this weekend, with Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood returning to judge a new batch of celebrities, while joined by hosts Alison Hammond and Noel Fielding.


Prue will, however, be stepping back from next year’s The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer.

"Prue will be joining Paul as usual to judge The Great British Bake Off, but will be stepping back from The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer," revealed a spokesperson from Love Productions, the television company behind the Channel 4 entertainment show.

The show are said to be searching for someone to replace the judge on the celebrity version of the show, with the likes of TV chef Nigella Lawson tipped as a favourite to join the show in the summer, when filming will begin for the next celebrity season.
