Entertainment Derry Girls Cast To Take On The Great British Bake Off In Festive Special
'Bake Off' week 8: Heatwave and heartbreak for fans as show favourite leaves
With a place in the semi-final of The Great British Bake Off to play for, the temperature was always going to be rising in the tent this episode - but that was without the added pressure of a heatwave to deal with, and then another fan favourite leaving really sent things into meltdown.

Derry Girls fans will know that the girls are always getting themselves into various sticky situations, so the cast’s turn in the Bake Off tent is sure to be a real treat.
It has been revealed the stars of the Channel 4 sitcom are set to take part in a New Year special of The Great British Bake Off.
Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Dylan Llewellyn and Siobhan McSweeney will all be attempting to impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood as they’re put through their baking paces.

No likey you know the rest.— Nicola Coughlan (@nicolacoughlan)
And by the sound of things, filming didn’t go too well as Nicola – who plays Clare – has said she is now triggered when she thinks about fondant icing.
She wrote: “The News is Out! #DerryGirls do #BakeOff!!! Tune in on New Years Day to see if we burn down the tent.”
She then added: “Yes I now have PTSD when I think about fondant icing.”
Previous festive specials of Bake Off have seen former contestants return to the tent in an attempt to win the title of Festive Star Baker.
The most recent series of the Channel 4 show finished last month, crowning David Atherton as the winner, after he beat off competition from Steph Blackwell and Alice Fevronia.
Paul Hollywood Reveals Why This Year's GBBO Judging Has Been The Hardest Ever
Paul Hollywood Reveals Why This Year's GBBO Judging Has Been The Hardest Ever “Some of them are on par with the best bakers ever,” Paul revealed.“Certainly from my point of view this year was the hardest judging I've ever done. It all relied a lot on the showstopper and not necessarily on challenge one and two.”He added, “The judging, the criteria - it was all about detail. One slip and that's it. It was really tight. Again, they flipped, they moved. You're thinking: 'Why can’t someone just dominate, dominate, dominate? [Then] Bam, there’s your winner.
Derry Girls has proved to be a huge hit for Channel 4, becoming the network’s biggest comedy launch since 2004, the most successful comedy launch ever on catch-up service All4 and the most-watched show in Northern Ireland on record.
The show has also been reaching a new global audience since its debut on Netflix.
It was confirmed earlier this year that a third series had been commissioned, and is set to air in 2020.
The Great Festive Bake Off will air on Channel 4 on New Years Day.
