David Schwimmer

Friends star David, who is best known for playing Ross Geller in the longrunning sitcom, has admitted that he adores the baking show. Chatting to the Radio Times, he explained: "I love it.

Anna Kendrick

The Pitch Perfect actress is undeniably a huge fan of the show, and was crushed when Mel Giedroyc, Sue Perkins and Mary Berry announced that they were leaving the show in 2016. Chatting on the Graham Norton Show, she said: "I am really upset about it. I'm sad. But it's great that it immediately turned Mel and Sue into folk heroes and we're all so proud of Mary who followed them. And of course Paul stayed – with his bread and his goatee."

Snoop Dogg

The rapper has revealed that he's a huge fan of the show, and has a particular soft spot for Mary Berry! Chatting to the Daily Star about the competition, he said: "The guy is cool but it's all about my home girl Mary. You know she is the boss… You know, I've been known to do a little baking in my time. I guess you could say my speciality was brownies- just maybe not the kind Mary Berry is used to."

Teri Hatcher

Teri is such a huge fan that she even appeared on the charity special! The former Desperate Housewives star said: "I was so excited [to be involved], my daughters and I were such huge fans. We get it on Netflix – I've been known to just sit there for a whole weekend and just watch it. I am just obsessed." She jokily added: "Soggy bottom doesn't really translate. Well it does because even in America you're pretty sure you don't want one."
