The Great British Bake Off Just Nabbed Alexa Chung

Hands up who loves the Great British Bake Off? Well, get ready to love it a whole lot more, because we’ve just found out the new celebrity line-up…

In a surprise we didn’t see coming, joining Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood for 2015’s showbiz series in aid of Comic Relief will be model/actress Alexa Chung. 

We imagine she’ll be a bit like last year’s Millie Mackintosh – super cute kitchen outfits (aka. flats and pinafores), plenty of retro scarf head-ties and a secret talent for whipping up a whole host of tasty treats. 

Joining Alexa will be YouTube vlogger Zoella, Jameela Jamil, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley (ah-mazing), Gok Wan, Abbey Clancy, Lulu, and Chris Moyles. 

We’re also expecting a lot of LOLs, as Victoria Wood, Dame Edna Everage, David Mitchell and Jonathan Ross are also on the line up. We can’t wait.


Great British Bake Off will kick off on February 11th on BBC1. Each episode will see four celebrities competing to be Star Baker and then the four Star Bakers will go head to head on The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice on Red Nose Day on 13 March.

We’re expecting big things in the outfit department, Chung.
