Derry Girls do Bake Off!

THE GIRLS are back and we can’t wait! 

The cast of our favourite TV show, Derry Girls, will be taking part in a special edition of The Great Festive Bake Off on New Year’s Day. 

Thanks to Nicola Coughlan, who plays Clare in the series, we’ve been treated to a sneak preview of what’s in store for tonight’s show. 

The special celebrity edition is being hosted by Noel Fielding and Sani Toksvig and features the cast of Derry Girls for the second of this year’s Christmas specials. 

Saoirse-Monica Jackson (Erin), Nicola Coughlan (Clare), Jamie-Lee O'Donnell (Michelle), Dylan Llewellyn (James) and Siobhan McSweeney (Sister Michael) will be cooking up some New Year-inspired bakes to impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood and be crowned Star Baker. 

We can’t wait to see if any of them try their hand at a cream horn?! Or even one of Derry’s most loved treats – a turnover! 

If you’re a big fan of the show then why not come and visit the Walled City of Derry to see areas where the show was filmed in series one and two. 

There is even a Derry Girls screen tour available! Or, why not experience the Derry Girls themed afternoon tea at The Everglades Hotel, where you’ll get your very own Derry Girls duck. 

The show is being aired on New Year’s Day on Channel 4 at 7.30pm.
