The One Where Ross Does The Great British Bake Off
The Great British Bake Off (or Great British Baking Show in the United States) is preparing to shoot it’s new season, but we don’t have to wait until autumn for more fun under the tent as a special celebrity edition of GBBO is underway on England’s Channel 4.
The Great Celebrity Bake Off For SU2C is a limited series to raise funds and awareness for Stand Up To Cancer, featuring 20 famous folks competing for the title of a Star Baker. Hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas are joined as always by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.
While most of the celebrities on the show aren’t as well known outside the U.K., a bit of Hollywood (the town, not Paul) star power is provided by David Schwimmer of Friends fame.
Apparently Schwimmer is rather competitive, and that could lead to a fun battle to the final round. Of course the ultimate question is, “Can Ross bake?”, and the answer is a resounding “YES” punctuated by a Paul Hollywood handshake and the title of this week’s Star Baker!
Other celebs on this SU2C special series are actor and comedian Tom Davis, TV presenter Paddy McGuinness, and Olympic gold medalist Tom Daley OBE.
As of now the only way to see the show in the U.S. is through social media clips or by using a VPN to stream the show.
