Who will be presenting GBBO 2020? 

Channel 4 has confirmed that comedian, writer and actor Matt Lucas will replace Sandi Toksvig, who is leaving the show to pursue other projects, including a brand new show coming to Channel 4 - The Write Offs - which is centred around the theme of adult literacy. 

Lucas will join Noel, Paul and Prue to present the 2020 main series, which will air around Autumn of this year. On his new role, he stated, "I’m chuffed to bits to be joining the most delicious show on television... And bearing in mind my love of cake, I’ve already ordered some much larger trousers in anticipation. See you in the tent!"

We won't be getting this major change just yet. Sandi, Noel, Prue and Paul will all be presenting and judging on The Great Celebrity Bake Off

When does The Great Celebrity Bake Off for SU2C air?

The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer is now airing on a weekly basis at 8pm on Channel 4.

It is a five-part series, with a different line-up of bakers every episode. On each show, four celebrities will compete against one another to be crowned star baker, and it will all be done in the name of raising money for Cancer Research UK. 

In these modern times, you don't just have to watch the bakers struggle with a technical recipe the traditional way. Instead, you can watch on All 4 – live or on-demand with catch-up through a wide range of devices including smart TVs, games consoles, media streamers, phones and tablets.
