The Great Celebrity Bake Off lineup hailed as ‘best ever’
Series will raise money for Stand Up To Cancer and features Daisy Ridley, Rob Beckett, Alexandra Burke and Tom Allen

I think I’ve heard of two of them. A minor thespian and the bird who massacred the Leonard Cohen song. Other than that…..

  1. Daisy Ridley is Private Godfrey’s granddaughter. Oh she is also in those terrible StarWars sequels, but that’s not necessarily her fault.

  2. From the once great Private Eye:-

    “The crowd of celebrities included zany comedian Kenny Gluenose and actress Sonia Thargs, snooker player Jeff Brownale and toast of the northern clubs Ron Butty”.

  3. At a distance, one can only be bemused. You have a TV show dedicated to watching people you’ve never heard of cooking? And it’s popular? There was I was thinking Spanish TV’s abysmal…

  4. The Other Bloke in Italy

    BiS, once you understand that all British TV is now made for women, and not for such as Julia, it all becomes clear.

  5. Daisy Ridley is Private Godfrey’s granddaughter.

    Grandniece. Quite an interesting chap, Arnold Ridley. A credit to Bath.

    Oh she is also in those terrible StarWars sequels, but that’s not necessarily her fault.

    Indeed, she did her bit well. If they hadn’t effed up the movies and her character, I think she’d have a higher profile now.
    At least they didn’t give her purple hair.

    Grandniece.

    Of course, thank you, her father was the love-child of his sister Dolly. I suspect Hodges the ARP man.

    I didn’t know the name, but I recognised the picture of Rob Beckett from these interminable panel shows that pass for comedy on British TV nowadays. I have never heard him tell a joke.

    I made the mistake of watching The Last Jedi and apart from shouting at the telly at the stupidity of spaceships “running out of fuel” and stopping, like they’re on the hard shoulder of the M1, I was horrified at how old Laura Dern looked.

  7. Bloke in North Dorset

    I had my first go at baking last weekend when I baked a chocolate cake for Mrs BiND’s birthday.

    Its fair to say I won’t be appearing on Bake off, nonentity or otherwise.

    Oh, that one (I just looked her up); when you said that I was mixing her up with the rather yummy one from the better of the new Star Wars ones (the one where they all die at the end). Nah; even if I had a telly, I wouldn’t bother watching her buns.

  9. “…the bird who massacred the Leonard Cohen song”? Not even in the Top 10 of that category.
