Ilford mansion to be home to celeb Great British Bake Off?

Rumours are abound of an upcoming celebrity Great British Bake Off, filmed at Valentines Mansion last week.

Television sources are keeping tight-lipped about the filming, but a curious resident, who saw the marquee erected and camera rolling in the gardens in Emerson Road, Ilford last week, claims she was told by the crew that they were filming a celebrity version of the popular BBC2 series.

It is not known which star guests will take part in the show, or when it will be screened.

A spokesman for Redbridge Council said she could not confirm exact details, but did say: “Love Productions, the company responsible for filming The Great British Bake Off at Valentines Mansion for the BBC, are shooting a programme for charity.”

The Recorder contacted Love Productions but has not received a response.
