Sam Cam gets ready to spice up her life! PM's wife joins host of stars including Geri Halliwell and Kimberley Walsh for Sport Relief's Celebrity Bake Off
The tensions in the Bake Off tent could rival that of an election campaign.
So it is perhaps only fitting that Samantha Cameron and Ed Balls will do battle for a special edition of the hit baking show.
The Tory Prime Minister’s wife and former Labour shadow chancellor will be up against each other to produce show stopping cakes, biscuits and breads in front of judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.

They will be joined by 14 other celebrities, including former Spice Girl Geri Horner and WAG Louise Redknapp, filmed for the Sports Relief charity edition of the BBC One show.
Mrs Cameron, 44, is known to be a fan of baking, having deployed her skills in the Downing Street kitchen for Comic Relief in 2013, where she sported a striking red wig. She is also believed to enjoy watching the Great British Bake Off.
She has previously said how much she enjoys creating cakes to help raise money for charity stating: 'Baking is such a brilliant and easy way to raise money.'

However she will face stiff competition from Mr Balls who is known to be passionate about food and also enjoys baking for his children.
Speaking about his abilities in the kitchen, he said in a 2012 interview with the New Statesman, he said: ‘My mum taught me. She’s a good cook and always keen to try new things. And I’ve been practising ever since.
‘Children’s birthday cakes are a bit of a speciality. I do a good pirate ship but "a Coke can with straw" proved to be an ask too far…'
