In December, presenter Lucas announced he would be stepping down from his presenting role on the main show as he could no longer commit to the programme's schedule alongside his other projects.

Schwimmer, best known for playing Ross Geller in Friends, said he joined the charity special to "raise more awareness" about cancer.

He said: "I lost a grandmother to cancer, my daughter lost a grandmother to cancer and my sister is a cancer survivor, so it’s important to me.

"I am just grateful I can help in any small way to raise more awareness.

"I am here to have fun. I am here to raise money for a great charity. It's a great cause and I happen to be a massive fan of the show."

Singer Ellie Goulding and presenter Emma Willis were among the stars who were crowned Star Baker last year in the charity series.

Stand Up To Cancer, launched in 2012, is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 with more than £93 million raised in the UK to date.

The Great British Bake Off 2022 was won by Syabira Yusoff, a 32-year-old cardiovascular research assistant from Malaysia.
