Get ready to scream “BIGGINS” while eating a home baked tart and supporting charity because Acting for Others just announced Christopher Biggins will return to the tents as a judge for the fourth annual right royal West End Bake Off taking place on Saturday 19th May (the same day His Royal Highness Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle- does that mean there will be wedding cake?!?).

Biggins joins the previously announced judges, Ruthie Henshall and Wendi Peters as they take to the tents to judge the cake creations from top West End Shows. The full line up of bakers are Mamma Mia!, The Play That Goes Wrong, The Phantom Of The Opera, Les Misérables, Book Of Mormon, Chicago, The Mousetrap, Chess, Young Frankenstein, 42nd Street, Hamilton, Strictly Ballroom, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Witness For The Prosecution, H.R.Haitch, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, The Great Gatsby.

The event is free for members of the public to attend, with judging beginning at 10.30, and the winners will be announced at 11am, when the Bake Off will be declared open for the public to buy cakes, signed posters and mingle with cast and crew from the shows. There will also be up close magic, The Royal Theatrical Fund choir and a tombola with the chance to win tickets to hit West End shows.

West End Bake Off is being held in aid of Acting for Others, a fundraising organisation for 15 UK theatrical and welfare charities.

For those unable to attend the event, Acting for Others can still be supported by donating at its Just Giving page:

It’s gunna be the BIGGINS event of the year!
