Stop the press, Mary Berry and JOANNA LUMLEY sharing the screen, is this the real life? Is this just fantasy??????
No its true, its that time of year where some of the countries favourites come together to test their baking skills for Comic Relief and our entertainment.
Sue Perkins presents the opening episode. The first brave celebrities to enter the Bake Off Tent are four of the most iconic figures in British entertainment - Joanna Lumley, Jennifer Saunders, Lulu, and Dame Edna Everage - who has come out retirement especially for Comic Relief. They must take on three challenges set by Mary and Paul. The first challenge they are set is enormous for these baking novices: they have to make a giant cookie or biscuit. The technical challenge is one of Mary's classic recipes, 12 mini fruit tarts, and there's a demanding showstopper challenge - a tiered chocolate cake inspired by a memorable occasion. Who makes a mess of their measurements, and who proves to be a rising star and be crowned Comic Relief star baker?
