You can catch Peterborough actor Warwick Davis on TV this week as he shows off his baking skills in The Great Comic Relief Bake Off.

The show starts Monday January 21, but the Harry Potter and Star Wars actor is one of four more celebrities with varying baking experience to enter the Bake Off tent on Tuesday January 22. He’ll face three challenges set by legendary cookery writer Mary Berry and acclaimed Master Baker Paul Hollywood.

At the end of the episode the baker who rises above the rest is crowned Comic Relief Star Baker. Lorraine Pascal will also be in Ghana, showing one of the projects that Comic Relief supports and how the money raised really makes a difference.


Show two features Warwick alongside well-known entrepreneur and philanthropist Duncan Bannatyne and television presenters Andy Akinwolere and Simon Reeve. Put through their paces in creating their best Signature Bakes (iced biscuits), Technical Bakes (Bakewell tarts), and Showstopper Bakes (gateaux), the contestants serve up some unique twists on classical recipes. Warwick makes a lemonberry gateaux, Duncan creates poppy seed ice-cream cone biscuits, Andy attempts fried egg biscuits, and Simon pulls out all the stops for his Jakey cakey bakey. All four men are up for the challenge, but who has the competitive edge to take the crown of Comic Relief Star Baker?

Catch the show on  Tuesday January 22 from 8.00-9.00pm on BBC TWO.
