David Schwimmer is getting dressed in an apron and entering a well-known tent! The Friends star, 56, will compete in The Great British Baking Show’s celebrity edition in support of Stand Up To Cancer, it was revealed on Tuesday.
The show will feature 20 famous people, including Jessica Hynes from Bridget Jones and Olympic diver Tom Daley from Little Mix. Schwimmer is wearing a navy blue polo shirt underneath his beige apron, which is covered in flour, in a brief video clip of the show’s “bakers” featured in the charity event.
“Say hello to our baking friends. Meet the stars hitting the Bake Off Tent to raise dough for a prime cause! The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off. Coming soon to @Channel4. #GBBO,” read the post.
Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will again serve as the show’s judges, and comedian Noel Fielding will serve as its host. The show is known in the UK as The Great British Bake Off. Matt Lucas, a comedian and the lead in the movie Bridesmaids, revealed in December that he would depart after three seasons.
Take a look at the tweet:

“It’s been a delicious experience, and I can’t imagine a more fun way of spending my summers, but it’s become clear to me that I can’t present both ‘Fantasy Football League’ and ‘Bake Off’ alongside all my other projects,” Lucas said in a statement shared to his Twitter account.
So I happily hand the baguette to someone else after three series and 51 episodes. Speaking candidly about her preference for Lucas’ replacement in December, judge Leith expressed her wish that it would be a name she had “heard of.”

She told ITV’s Lorraine, “I don’t know anything about young comedians. “Before meeting Noel Fielding, I had never heard of him. I want someone well-known.”
She continued, “I get to love them, but the fact is, I’ve never understood Matt and Noel’s humor anyhow. I adored Matt, and he desired to work in the theater more.
