Fans of the BBC's Great British Bake Off will see judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood turning up the heat on 16 celebrity contestants as part of Sport Relief.

The line-up for The Great Sport Relief Bake Off will be revealed next month when the show is screened by BBC Two.

Among the contestants will be TV and sports stars.

Host Sue Perkins will be joined by guest presenters Ed Byrne, Jo Brand and Omid Djalili during the episodes.

Berry said: "It was lovely to meet all of the celebrity bakers, especially as they were all so excited about taking part. Baking doesn't necessarily come first for most of them so I was really looking forward to finding out who had hidden talents. Having Jo, Ed and Omid in the Bake Off tent was great fun too."

Hollywood said: "We had a real laugh filming this Sport Relief special. There were a few disasters, some triumphs and even some tears but all the celebrity bakers got stuck in and seemed to enjoy the experience. I think what the series shows is that baking is really accessible and anyone can have a go."
