David Schwimmer and Jesy Nelson competed on Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer on Sunday but viewers were left loving one over the other.
In the first round of the charity edition, actor David, 56, was branded a ‘legend’ by fans as he competed in the famous tent to raise money for cancer which has previously affected his family.
The Friends star admitted he had very ‘low expectations’ for his cooking skills as he ‘does not bake’ but David seemed to surprise himself throughout the show.
Competing against former Little Mix singer Jesy, comedian Rose Matafeo and actor Tom Davis, the celebs were tasked with baking six savoury pies, six delicious macarons, and a 3D meringue of a Celebrity fail scene.
After each round David came out on top winning every single challenge including the Star Baker award and managed to bag the coveted Hollywood Handshake from judge Paul Hollywood.
David admitted ahead of baking: ‘I make dinner, lunch but I don’t bake. My friends and family are very excited for me, they are big fans of the show.
‘I do not bake on a day to day or year to year. My expectations are so low that I think I might do really well for myself.’
Fans couldn’t contain their excitement as he presented his show stopper on the charity show and joked around with the other contestants.
One said: ‘David Schwimmer is just everything and more on Bake Off!’ While another wrote: ‘Living for David Schwimmer of #GBBO he’s the best!’
A third added: ‘David Schwimmer on the British Bake Off is literally everything I dreamed and more’.
