Great Celebrity Bake Off, 8.00pm, C4

A fresh batch of celebs ventures into the tent in aid of Stand Up to Cancer

GBBO celeb specials are always a riot, and we’re glad to say the first of five Stand Up to Cancer episodes is just as hysterical as we’ve come to expect. It’s a great line-up this year, with the likes of Alan Carr, Teri Hatcher and Lee Mack, but tonight it’s Harry Hill, Martin Kemp, Roisin Conaty and Bill Turnbull putting their pinnies on. In a particularly mouth-watering set of challenges the foursome must prepare classic cupcakes, crêpes Suzette and, wait for it, “a 3D biscuit scene recreating the best day of their life”! There’s triumph and disaster in equal measure – and a good helping of surprises, too… Rating: *****

Wild Britain, 9.00pm, C5

Incredible footage makes this a must-watch series about British wildlife. This first episode introduces the animals who live in mountainous areas with a bird’s-eye view of the Cairngorms in Scotland from a camera fixed to a golden eagle. And as the female goes in search of food in sub-zero temperatures, we get a close-up of this iconic bird in full hunt mode, and run with its prey, a hare, as it tries to escape across the snowy terrain – it doesn’t end well for the leggy mammal. Meanwhile, in the lower Highlands, the monarch of the glen is ready to challenge rival stags who are after his harem – and it could be a fight to the death. Hugh Bonneville’s narration makes this a very pleasant walk on the wild side. Rating: *****

More previews tomorrow.
