Speaking about the charity episode for Stand Up To Cancer, executive producer of Love Productions, Kieran Smith, said: "All of us have been affected by cancer in some way or other and Love are proud to once again partner with Stand Up To Cancer. We hope the prospect of 20 famous bakers sweating it out in our famous white tent proves hugely entertaining, but most importantly helps raise vital funds for a very worthwhile cause." Channel 4 head of formats and features Sarah Lazenby added: "Stand Up To Cancer has become a force to be reckoned with in the fight against cancer. As part of the fundraising campaign, this year's special celebrity editions of Bake Off managed to raise millions of pounds to fund groundbreaking cancer trials."
