Great British Bake Off address absent Noel Fielding with funny 'replacement' snap
The Great British Bake Off returned in style on Sunday, as the first episode in a series of celebrity Stand Up To Cancer specials got underway and put four of our favourite stars against each other in the hope of earning the approval of judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith. However, mere moments into the show, host Matt Lucas informed fans at home that for this debut edition, sadly his co-host Noel Fielding was not able to join them for the episode, joking it was due to him being a "vampire". While The Great British Bake Off's official Twitter poked fun at Noel's, 49, absence too as they joked about celebrity contestant David Schwimmer, who is best known for his role in US sitcom Friends, being his "replacement".
