It’s time to raise your head from that industrial stack of pancakes because the second batch of celebrity bakers are back tonight for the next instalment of the Great Comic Relief Bake Off.


Wielding their wooden spoons in the candy-coloured tent tonight are Jonathan Ross (he’s been on TV, a lot), How to Look Good Naked presenter Gok Wan, blogger Zoella aka Zoe Sugg and model Abbey Clancy. We're not sure if the internet will be able to cope, especially if Berry whips out a bomber. 


Whether they’ll produce anything to make Paul Hollywood’s blue eyes sparkle is anyone’s guess but tonight the quartet of famous faces will be tackling 24 cupcakes, 20 profiteroles and a show-stopper marble cake inspired by their favourite building. Yep, nothing could possibly go wrong there.


Let’s call it now, Jonathan Ross is going to be tonight’s designated inept one, especially as Zoella’s How to Make Cupcakes YouTube video has over 800,000 hits, Gok Wan has written a cookbook and Clancy, well, she won the Strictly Come Dancing glitterball so we know she’s determined.


But we may be wrong. We’ve heard whispers that Hollywood describes one cupcake as looking, 'A bit like slime at the minute,' while Mary Berry compares some profiteroles to a Yorkshire pudding. Oh dear.


Here's a little teaser to get your Bake Off on while we wait to see if the internet goes into meltdown. 

The Great Comic Relief Bake Off is on tonight at 8.30pm on BBC One.
