A Friends Star Joins The Star-Studded Lineup For Celebrity Bake Off

Ahh Bake Off, the perfect show to sit back, relax and watch some amateur bakers make sure their biscuits have enough snap for Paul Hollywood.

What makes it arguably more entertaining is when the amateur bakers are celebrities we know and love. Celebrity Bake Off is back and the lineup is very impressive. From a Friends star to a former Little Mix member, we’ll be interested to see if their talent in their sectors translates into the tent.

The Great British Bake Off: Stand Up to Cancer will air on Channel 4 this year but those taking part have been announced to get everyone excited for the upcoming series.

The official Instagram page for the show posted a group photo of the celebs with the caption, “Meet the stars hitting the Bake Off Tent to raise money for a very special cause! The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off. Coming soon to @Channel4. #GBBO.”

David Schwimmer is one of the biggest names in the gang, the Friends star who is known for playing Ross in the iconic sitcom as well as many other roles including Robert Kardashian in The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

Jesy Nelson is also entering the tent, the former Little Mix star famously left the band in 2020 and embarked on a solo career.

TOWIE star Gemma Collins will also be baking with the gang, with these three names in one tent we are already hooked and that’s not even half of them!

Comedians, Mike Wozniak, Rose Matafeo, Lucy Beaumont, and Judi Love will also be involved as well as poet Tim Key, and Joe Thomas, who you may know as Simon Cooper in The Inbetweeners.
