Everyone has a celebrity version of their show. RuPaul is getting one for RuPaul's Drag Race this year, Adam Rippon appeared on Celebrity Family Feud last year, and now Queer Eye's Tan France is headed to The Great Celebrity Bake Off in aid of Stand Up to Cancer.

Though he's the fashion-oriented fifth of the Fab Five, France will compete alongside other celebrities like Richard Dreyfuss, James Blunt, Louis Theroux, Patsy Palmer, Johanna Konta and more. A full crowd of 20 will face off under the GBBO tents for the five-part series.

Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood will judge while Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig will be around the tent to "provide tea and sympathy" as well as (hopefully) some advice.

Each episode will see four celebrities baking to win the Star Baker crown through three rounds.

The show is an attempt to bring awareness and raise money for cancer research.

"The Great Celebrity Bake Off is a key ingredient in our Stand Up to Cancer recipe," said Sarah Lazenby, Head of Formats and Features at Channel 4 in a statement. "We've seen the power of using comedy and entertainment to bring awareness and raise millions of pounds to fund pioneering cancer trials. We hope viewers will enjoy this year's line-up of famous bakers, there's never a dough moment as each bring something fresh and exciting to the tent."

The show will air this spring on Channel 4.
