The Great Celebrity Bake Off: Start date confirmed for show with new slot for 2023 - here’s when
and live on Freeview channel 276
The start date for the upcoming 2023 season of The Great Celebrity Bake Off in aid of Stand Up to Cancer has been announced, with the show set to move to a brand new slot on the schedule this year.
The highly anticipated new season will air on Sunday instead of its usual Tuesday slot. The season opener will be broadcast on Channel 4 on March 19 at 7.45pm.
Despite a change of schedule - the show is expected to otherwise remain the same as a star studded cast including the likes of Friends legend David Schwimmer, Olympian Tom Daley, Gemma Collins and more compete in the infamous tent.
The lineup, announced in February also includes The Repair Shop’s Jay Blades, ex-Little Mix member Jesy Nelson, The Inbetweeners star Joe Thomas, Loose Women’s Coleen Nolan, and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness.
The show is set to run for five episodes and will see four contestants compete in each one. Last year, the winners were dominated by musicians with Emma Willis, Gareth Malone, Example, Ben Miller and Ellie Goulding coming out victorious.
Regular Bake Off stars Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas will host the series, with it to be the last for the latter who announced his departure in December after three years on the show. Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood will also star as the firm but fair judges.
