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.

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.

a man holding a sign: Great British Bake Off isn't just lovely to watch because of the fabulous bakes and the depth of Paul Hollywood's blue eyes, but because the contestants are always delightful, ready to help one another and generally adored by the viewing public by the time they leave the tent. That being said, there are some that ended up sticking in our minds – be it they made something especially incredible, were particularly hilarious or were just downright chilled legends (we're looking at you Selasi). Find out what your fan favourites are up to now. As for the winners of each series – you can find out what they have been up to here.  Paul Jagger  Paul made it into the GBBO's baking hall of fame by making a lion out of bread. His creation was so famous that it makes the rounds every year as the standards that bakers need to reach to.

He also posts some of his drool-worthy creations on Instagram, which most recently included a blackberry meringue, Bakewell tarts and a four-tier buttercream wedding cake, mmm!
