Hide Your Scones, Because the Derry Girls Are Coming to The Great British Baking Show

And yes, Sister Michael will be there

Kelly Connolly

Now this is class: The Derry Girls are stopping by The Great British Bake Off. The stars of the Channel 4/Netflix comedy will compete in the upcoming Great Festive Bake Off, Love Productions announced Thursday. The special is set to air New Year's Day.

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Clare on the Northern Irish sitcom, tweeted the news, writing, "Tune in on New Years Day to see if we burn down the tent."

Coughlan will be joined on Bake Off (known in the States as The Great British Baking Show) by Derry Girls co-stars Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Jamie-Lee O'Donnell, Dylan Llewellyn, and Siobhan McSweeney, who play Erin, Michelle, James, and Sister Michael. They'll be tasked with impressing the judges, Noel, Sandi, Prue, and Paul, with their "New Year's inspired bakes." Keep an eye on the scones, judges.

Derry Girls, which premiered in 2018, returned for Season 2 earlier this year; a third season is already in the works. The beloved, chaotic comedy appeared in TV Guide's list of the 100 Best Shows on TV Right Now this fall.

The Great Festive Bake Off will air in the U.K. on Channel 4 on New Year's Day. A U.S. premiere date has not yet been announced.

Derry Girls and The Great British Baking Show are available to stream on Netflix.
