Actor Joe Locke is one of the 20 celebrities swapping showbiz for the kitchen to compete in this year's Great Celebrity Bake Off in support of a charity for cancer.The seventh series is set to kick off on Sunday 17 March on Channel 4 at 7.40pm, where the 20 year old will be joined by some other big names, including Paloma Faith, Mel B, Danny Dyer, Greg James, Dermot O'Leary and Oti Mabuse.

While fans will be watching Joe flex his baking skills, they're used to him starring as Charlie Spring in the hit Netflix series Heartstopper.The show burst onto our screens in 2022 and follows Joe's character Charlie and Kit Connor as Nick Nelson, two British teenage schoolboys, who meet and fall in love at the fictional Truham Grammar School.

Instantly, Heartstopper was dubbed as one of the most important queer television shows in a generation. However, it wasn't all good news for Joe when he was suddenly thrust into the spotlight.

Rather, he revealed he was subjected to cruel online trolling, and when he would type his name into the Twitter search bar, it was often followed up with 'ugly' or 'gay.' Despite only being 17 when he filmed the first series of Heartstopper, Joe responded to the internet trolls in a very mature manner.
