Tues­day The Great Celebrity Bake Off For Stand Up To Can­cer, 8pm, Chan­nel 4

Sunday Herald Life - - Television & Radio -

HARRY Hill needs to stop muck­ing around mak­ing pro­grammes that are quite like it but aren’t re­ally it, ac­cept his destiny in the uni­verse, and come back to ITV to make more episodes of TV Burp for Satur­day teatimes, thereby in­creas­ing the amount of things worth watch­ing on ITV on a Satur­day by 100 per cent. Please, Harry. In the mean­time, though, if you’ve been miss­ing the man and his re­lent­less com­mit­ment to be­ing daft, here he is as one of the celebri­ties in the first episode of this spe­cial se­ries for char­ity. The other con­tes­tants this week are Span­dau Bal­let’s Mar­tin Kemp, co­me­dian Roisin Conaty, and break­fast news guy Bill Turn­bull, while Sandi Toksvig and Noel Field­ing scurry around, egging every­one on. Af­ter the ten­sion sur­round­ing the show’s as­ton­ish­ingly seam­less and suc­cess­ful move to Chan­nel 4, there’s an en­joy­able end-of-term feel­ing about it all – and Hill’s show­stop­per “bis­cuit scene” is one for the ages.
