Rochelle Humes, Jamelia, Victoria Pendleton, Greg Rutherford, Helen Skelton, Alistair McGowan and Jason Gardiner are among the 16 stars who have signed up for the 'Great Sport Relief Bake Off'
Rochelle Humes, Jamelia and Jason Gardiner have signed up for a charity version of 'The Great British Bake Off'.
The Saturdays singer, the 'Loose Women' panellist and the 'Dancing on Ice' judge will battle it out alongside 13 other stars on 'The Great Sport Relief Bake Off' in a bid to impress the bakery show's judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with their culinary skills.
Olympians Victoria Pendleton and Greg Rutherford have also signed up to take part in the four-part BBC Two series, which will air every night from Monday January 13 to Thursday January 16.
'Blue Peter' presenter Helen Skelton, impressionist Alistair McGowan, 'Trollied' actress Jane Horrocks and former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan have also signed up for the show.
Blonde stunner Helen said: "I decided to take part in 'The Great Sport Relief Bake Off' because I'm absolutely rubbish at baking.
"All my friends and family laugh at anything I do in the kitchen, so I thought this might be a chance to redeem myself.
"I wished I'd practiced more beforehand. When they said to me, 'You've got to make a pizza,' I thought they meant just put the toppings on a pizza, I didn't realise they meant make the dough and everything!"
The show will be hosted by several guest presenters for the first time, including Ed Byrne and Jo Brand - who both competed on 'The Great Sport Relief Bake Off' last year - and comedian Omid Djalili, while regular presenter Sue Perkins will also host one episode.
The line-up is completed by singer Michael Ball, Downton Abbey's Samantha Bond, 'Harry Potter' actress Bonnie Wright, broadcaster Emma Freud, radio DJ Johnny Vaughan, 'Smack the Pony' star Doon Mackichan, and TV presenter Kirsty Young.
