Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp signs up for celebrity Great British Bake Off

SPANDAU Ballet crooner Martin Kemp is one of the first stars signed up for the celebrity Great British Bake Off.

The singer, 56, will be joined on the show by former BBC Breakfast frontman Bill Turnbull, 61, TV Burp funnyman Harry Hill, 53, and comedian Roisin Conaty, 38.

They will take part in the fundraiser, set to air early next year, for Channel 4’s Stand Up to Cancer appeal. It’s thought even more famous contestants are set to be revealed over the coming months.

A TV insider said: “Channel 4 producers are pleased with the line-up they’ve pulled together. They hope it’ll be as big a success as the main show was.”

The channel announced the signing of Martin, Bill, Harry, and Roisin, at last night’s (TUES) annual Upfront ad sales event in London.

It is likely to be seen as further proof that Bake Off’s shift from the BBC has been a success.
Viewers feared that too many elements of the much-loved show would change.

Though Paul Hollywood, 51, remained, his fellow judge Mary Berry was replaced by Prue Leith, 77, and hosts Mel Giedroyc, 49, and Sue Perkins were swapped for Sandi Toksvig, 59, and Noel Fielding, 44.

Last month’s final was watched by a respectable 7.3million people — despite the fact that Prue tweeted the name of the winner, Sophie Faldo, ten hours early.
