Queer Eye’s Tan France is one of the celebrities who will be taking part in the celebrity version of hit TV show The Great British Bake Off.

The show has been running since 2010 on British TV. It has picked up a cult worldwide following via PBS and streaming on Netflix.

Alongside the regular season of the show, in which members of the public bake creations to show off their culinary skills, there are annual celebrity episodes.

Yesterday, British broadcaster Channel 4 announced the contestants for the next celebrity season, which will air as part of the Stand Up To Cancer fundraising and awareness project.

The 20 celebrities include Tan France, actor Richard Dreyfuss, singer James Blunt, documentary maker Louis Theroux, actress Caroline Quentin, comedian Jenny Eclair, Rob Rinder and a variety of other names from British TV and YouTube.

There will be five episodes. A transmission date has not yet been announced. Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will be back to judge the cooking.

France was born in the UK and only moved full-time to the US in 2015, where he found fame via Queer Eye. Later this month he will co-host a new Netflix fashion competition show entitled Next In Fashion.
