Paul Hollywood and co are getting in the festive spirit
Stars of The Great British Bake Off have recreated East 17’s ‘Stay Another Day’ video – check out the festive clip below.
The parody sees Noel Fielding, Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith and Sandi Toksvig mime to the classic 90s single, while donning oversized fluffy coats. Complete with snowy backdrop and exaggerated arm movements, it’s almost identical to Brian Harvey and co’s 1994 version.
The video is in promotion of the upcoming seasonal specials of Bake Off, which will feature East 17 member Tony Mortimer.
East 17’s ’Stay Another Day’ became Christmas Number One in 1994 and was the only chart-topping track of the boyband’s career.
There are two separate holiday Bake Off specials this year – one for Christmas and another for New Year. In each one-off episode, four ‘all-star’ contestants from previous series will compete to be crowned Star Baker.
The Great Christmas Bake Off airs Christmas Day at 7:40 on Channel 4, with The Great Festive Bake Off hitting screens at the same time on New Year’s Day.
Elsewhere, the Bake Off stars got together for a Christmas feast earlier this week. Tweeting a heartwarming snap of the four of them around the dinner table, Prue Leith said: “Christmas comes early to the Gang of Four. Sandi cooks a mean roast duck.”
Last month, Prue Leith recounted the moment she accidentally tweeted the result of The Great British Bake Off final before it had aired, disclosing that she “felt suicidal” upon realising her mistake.
“I think that was one of the worst half an hours [of my life],” she said. “That first half an hour, when I realised what I’d done, which was the most idiotic thing in the world… I tweeted the name of the winner of Bake Off by mistake. I was in Bhutan. I had not had any reception for a while.”
