The Sport Relief Bake Off

We're transfixed by the sight of four celebrities getting hot and bothered over flapjacks and wholemeal scones in the name of charity. The Sport Relief Bake Off took one of our favourite TV shows, threw in a few TV personalities and made them bake under the watchful gaze of judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.

Host Mel Giedroyc was on hand to coax the first four celebrities - Angela Griffin, Joe Swift, Sarah Hadland and James Wong - through the challenges.

Talking about The Great British Bake Off Angela Griffin said, “The first and second series probably inspired me to bake more. Not necessarily very well but definitely more” while Sarah Hadland, aka Stevie from Miranda added, “I only started watching The Great British Bake Off after learning I was going to be doing it myself! I think the programme is brilliant and Mel and Sue and Paul and Mary are brilliant too – they really make the show warm and accessible to people at home.” Last night Sarah was our favourite contestant by far, simply because of her excellent 'My what I call apron' apron.

Episode 2 of the Sport Relief Bake Off airs tonight on BBC2 at 8pm. Feel inspired to hold your own bake sale in aid of Sport Relief? Find out more at sportrelief.com
