David revealed that he wanted to participate in the celeb edition because his grandmother and ex-wife’s (Zoe Buckman) mother died from cancer: ‘I lost a grandmother to cancer, my daughter lost a grandmother to cancer and my sister is a cancer survivor, so it’s important to me.

‘I am just grateful I can help in any small way raise more awareness.’

The Little Britain star returns to the Bake Off tent one last time since stepping down from the role, after the comedian explained that he had found it difficult to balance multiple commitments.

The 48-year-old wrote: ‘xxx Farewell Bake Off! It’s been a delicious experience and I can’t imagine a more fun way of spending my summers, but it’s become clear to me that I can’t present both ‘Fantasy Football League’ and ‘Bake Off’ alongside all my other projects.

‘So, after three series and 51 episodes, I am cheerfully passing the baguette on to someone else.’

Bake Off hosts ‘paid thousands for charity specials’ – where even the celebrities donated their WHOLE fee to Stand Up To Cancer though Bake Off stars make a “significant donation” to Stand Up to Cancer.

The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer airs on Sunday March 19 at 7:45pm on Channel 4.
