it’s fair to say Joe was a surprise winner of C4’s Celebrity Bake-off Stand Up To Cancer but who would have thought that he would produce a startling Rear Of The Year style cake in chocolate and orange sponge inspired by his own assets and resplendent with green thong? His efforts won over the judges who declared it “powerful but pert.”

He comes with an incredible line up of comedy stars - Zoe Lyons, David O’Doherty and Tom Allen. Zoe is one of the best known faces on the comedy circuit, a sharp funny performer who takes a sideways view of life and its absurdities, appearing in shows like Michael Mcintyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and an Edinburgh Festival nominee. David is the best-selling author and award-winning comedian who brings his keyboard to sing songs and tell stories, while the superbly waspish Tom Allen has become a fave on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, and was even a part of the last Bake Off Series with Joe Brand’s round-up programme An Extra Slice.
