Friends Star David Schwimmer recently explained why he signed up to appear on The Great Celebrity Bake Off Show.
According to MirrorDavid revealed that he wanted to take part in the For Stand Up to Cancer charity special because his grandmother died from the disease, and so did his ex-wife Zoe Buckman’s mother.
The actor told viewers that his sister “Ellie was also battling cancer”.
“I lost a grandmother to cancer, my daughter lost a grandmother to cancer and my sister survived cancer, so it’s important to me,” David said.
“I’m grateful that in any small way I can help raise more awareness,” the 56-year-old said.
He added, “I’m here to have fun. I’m here to raise money for a great charity. It’s a great cause and I’m a huge fan of the show.”
Unsurprisingly, David was married to his ex-wife Zoe Buckman between 2010 and 2017. He has an 11-year-old daughter.
