Tim’s been revealed as one of the bakers on The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer!

The celebrities will enter The Great British Bake Off tent to face the signature, technical and show-stopper challenges across five episodes. In each episode four celebrities will battle it out over three rounds in a bid to be crowned Star Baker.

So… is Timmy gonna be bringin’ home the gingerbread or will he be left flailing in a floury flurry?

Taking part are: Tim, Teri Hatcher, Stacey Solomon, Ruth Davidson, Roisin Conaty, Ricky Wilson, Perri Kiely, Nick Hewer, Melanie Sykes, Martin Kemp, Lee Mack, Kadeena Cox, Joe Lycett, Jamie Laing, Harry Hill, Griff Rhys Jones, Ella Eyre, Bill Turnbull, Alan Carr and Aisling Bea.

Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood will be judging, with Bake Off hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig on hand to delight in the glorious successes and epic fails as the pressure builds.

Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4.

The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer will air later this year on Channel 4.

Chihoohoo

Chihoohoo

Tim will play Chihoohoo in Nathan Jurevicius’s upcoming animated movie Arkie. He joins, already announced, cast members Shailene Woodley, Jai Courtney and Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor.

Arkie is a fantastical adventure about an inventive and inquisitive young girl, Arkie (Woodley) who must leave the safety of her home and embark on an epic journey to the dazzling but dangerous metropolis The City Of Light to rescue her father Blister from the clutches of the evil scientist Dr. Maybee (Courtney).

Chihoohoo (Tim), a hybrid Chihuahua, is a baddie! Boo hiss! He’s one of Dr Maybee’s sly underworld contacts, a ruthless underworld lord who controls The City of Light’s lucrative black market.

Arkie will be on a big screen near you in late 2019.

Arkie was created by artist Nathan Jurevicius (the award winning talent behind the Scarygirl graphic novel and video game). To see additional images and learn more about the film and the team behind it, head over to @arkiethemovie on Facebook.
