A cake slice just would not cut it for Dame Edna Everage after the star needed to wield a pair of pliers to get a giant cookie out of a baking tin during the Great Comic Relief Bake Off.

The Australian star struggled in the kitchen alongside celebrity bakers Joanna Lumley, Lulu and the eventual winner Jennifer Saunders.

Dame Edna, who admitted: “I’m a bit unconventional in my cooking. I’m not bound by rules”, did not impress judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with h er ginger and macadamia nut cookie which had to be extracted from the tin with pliers and tasted slightly of aluminium.

She did impress with a Sydney Opera House cake for the showstopper challenge, but it was Saunders’ bed cake inspired by her Absolutely Fabulous character Edina Monsoon that won the day.

Saunders, who was named star baker, said she was ” dizzy with happiness” at the result and goes through to the final on Red Nose Day for a chance to be named overall winenr.

The next episode, on Wednesday February 25, sees Abbey Clancy, Gok Wan, Jonathan Ross and Zoella attempt to rise to the challenge.
