Just when you think the Great British Bake Off couldn't get any better, it gets a slice of Alexa Chung.

The line-up for this year's Great Comic Relief Bake Off has just been announced and it's a real treat, with 16 celebrities facing Paul and Mary. This is one of those rare cases in reality TV when celebrity actually means celebrity.

Joining Alexa Chung we have YouTube star Zoella, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley (we hope as their* Ab Fab* characters), presenter Gok Wan, Abbey Clancy, Lulu, Jameela Jamil and former Prime Minister Gordon Brown's wife Sarah. We told you - celebrities you've heard of.

Expect more 'soggy bottom' inuendos than usual, as comedians Chris Moyles, Victoria Wood, Dame Edna Everage, David Mitchell and Jonathan Ross are on the line up. Sue and Mel will be joined by Jo Brand and Ed Byrne keeping the bakers under control.

There will be four episodes on BBC1 starting on February 11th. 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.

Now the real question is, who will be the best dressed baker? Mary Berry in her floral bombers or the Chung in denim? Of course Dame Edna will be looking fab-ul-ous.
