7 Irish celebs they should've definitely put on the Great Celebrity Bake Off

Humour us.

THE CELEBRITY GREAT British Bake Off contestants have been announced.

The bakers include Ruth Davidson, Jamie Lang, Teri Hatcher, Harry Hill, Tim Minchin, Stacey Solomon, Roisin Conaty, Ricky Wilson, Perri Kiely, Nick Hewer, Melanie Sykes, Martin Kemp, Lee Mack, Kadeena Cox, Joe Lycett, Griff Rhys Jones, Ella Eyre, Bill Turnbull, Alan Carr, and our very own Aisling Bea.

You’d almost recognise some of those names!

But we’re still not happy. One Irish rep is simply not enough. We have some ideas.

1. Mícheál Ó’Muircheartaigh

Who could forget this extremely wholesome video of Míchaél making a sambo? Please put him on GBBO to make a sponge and send us all peacefully off to sleep.

2. The ma from Crystal Swing

Remember she made this sandwich on Facebook in kinda an attempt to replicate Michael’s? We’d watch a whole series of this disaster.

Grated onion and egg, are you for real?


3. Daniel O’Donnell

Daniel O’Donnell shared this photo of him eating sardines and it became a massive thing. He’d surely do better than his stint on Strictly, he’s practically an influencer by the looks of this. We’d guess at least 500 ladies over the age of 90 ate sardines that evening in Donegal alone.

Not that I’m much of a chef but had this for my lunch today mixed with mayonnaise and red pesto and it was gorgeous.



4. Roz Purcell

I just think it would be hilarious if Roz Purcell made quinoa and prune protein power brownies while everyone else drowns some overbaked flour in sugar and cream.

5. Gerald Keane

What are you making this week, Gerald?


6. Rachel Allen

OK she’d be really good at it, but she’d also give us some serious soundbites.

“Yum, yum! Lovely with a cup of tea!”

7. Cormac from Tallafornia

Just because he’d use eggs for everything. Eggs are a natural part of baking, so it’s a certain win.

Cormac you used 144 eggs in this tiny meringue.
That’s only five eggs per bloke, per day.

8. James Kavanagh

He’s a celeb now, right?

He spends so much time in the Pepper Pot and Kaph, surely he could whip up a decent cheesecake at this stage?
