UKTV’s Good Food has picked up another season of Choccywoccydoodah from Twofour Broadcast, this time with the addition of celebrities Whoopi Goldberg (pictured), Jackie Collins, fashion designer Julien Macdonald and Ivana Trump, who will come up with concepts for extraordinary cakes.

Choccywoccydoodah Star Challenge (w/t) will air in Q1 of 2013.

Each episode of the 10 x one-hour observational documentary series will feature a different celebrity setting the cake challenge for the team of world-class chocolatiers as they travel across the UK and U.S.

In this fourth installment of the series, the team will also expand from their Brighton home to a four-floor cake and chocolate emporium in central London.

Choccywoccydoodah has been a great success for Good Food, being the second highest rating commission on the channel since 2008,” said Good Food’s general manager Clare Laycock. “We know that the series appeals not only to food lovers but also to a younger audience, and this is part of the channel’s commitment to providing entertainment-led content for our peak hour programming.”

“It’s great to see Choccywoccydoodah back on the Good Food channel as it’s always a joy to work with the Choccy gang,” added Twofour’s Juliet Rice. “We’re also looking forward to working with celebrities in the U.S. including Whoopi Goldberg and Jackie Collins, who are coming up with their own cake concepts for the team to build. Chocolate mayhem and madness are guaranteed throughout!”

Choccywoccydoodah Star Challenge is overseen by UKTV’s senior commissioning editor Tess Cuming, with Twofour Broadcast’s Linda Parkhurst as series producer and Juliet Rice as executive producer.
