The third episode of The Great British Celebrity Bake Off aired tonight with Tan France crowned star baker. The Great British Bake Off is back for 2020 with five episodes for Stand Up To Cancer, continuing with the third instalment tonight (March 24) at 8PM on Channel 4. In each episode a new line up of celebrities join hosts Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding in the tent, aiming to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with their baking skills. Only one star in each episode will be awarded with the coveted star baker apron. The latest four famous faces being ushered into the Bake Off tent by Sandi and Noel were Queer Eye's resident fashionista Tan France, actress and TV presenter Caroline Quentin, comedian Joel Dommett and British tennis number one Johanna Konta.
As always, the celebrity bakers took on three challenges set by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith. The first challenge for this week's group was the signature where they were asked to make eight classic eclairs. Next, the technical challenge set by Prue was a battenburg cake, with Tan ranking number one with his bake. Then for the showstopper, the celebrity contestants had to recreate their biggest fears in the form of a 3D cake. Joel created a giant diving board, Johanna made a cake version of her sausage dog who she feared losing, Caroline's biggest fear took the form of a rat cake and Tan's showstopper was an aged version of himself. At the end of it all, Prue and Paul rated all the bakes before deciding Tan was the week's star baker. The Great British Bake Off 2020 celebrity specials for Stand Up To Cancer air Tuesdays at 8PM on Channel 4. Taking part next week are singer James Blunt, TV presenters Alison Hammond and Alex Jones, and YouTuber Joe Sugg. You can watch episodes online and catch up at All4.
