David Schwimmer cracks under pressure

Celebrity Great British Bake Off is set to return to screens this Sunday and as usual nerves are getting to some of the contestants as they crack under the pressure.

In Sunday’s episode, Ex-Friends actor David Schwimmer, 56, and a host of other famous faces are tasked with creating a meringue centerpiece as part of the Showstopper challenge.

But when it comes to construction, David has an unusual way of fixing and assembling his.

Frantically spraying his rabbit creation with something from a can, the American says, “Go ahead with the frosting spray, it does the job!”

He then turns to the camera and explains, “I’m going to freeze it and hope that’s the glue.”

Later in the show, David is seen trying to lift his fragile bunny using a huge silver slice, but fails in his attempt as one of the ears is instantly ripped off.

Cursing under his breath, the legendary star lets out a long, drawn-out breath as if to calm himself.

Elsewhere, fellow actor Tom Davies, 43, had an equally chaotic time trying to get his meringue out of a bowl.

The Plebs actor commented: “It’s a nightmare.

“I’m worried, I won’t lie. Yeah, that’s not going to work, I can already feel the creeps.

He then picks up his meringue bowl, turns it upside down and curses as it instantly cracks and a whole piece breaks off.

The celebrity special, in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, features a total of 20 well-known faces who will all be competing to be star bakers.

They include former Little Mix singer Jessie Nelson, New Zealand comedian Rose Matafeo, Judy Love and Loose Women’s Coleen Nolan, Olympian Tom Daley and reality star Gemma Collins.
