As AJ nervously drinks tea, Gemma proudly calls herself a cooking genius.

Meanwhile, AJ isn't as convinced about her bake.

She says: "The colours aren't good.

"Oh no, in these stressful times all I can do is drink tea."

"If that's not baked all the way through, it's tough."

Friends star David Schwimmer earned himself an elusive handshake from Paul Hollywood for his tofu pie last week.

The move sent the actor over the edge as he told viewers he knew how special those handshakes were.

He was then awarded top spot in the blind taste test for his macarons as they were better than the other competitors' attempts.

"I think I just got lucky. I’m really happy and exhausted. I think… I’m going to go to bed," he said after winning that round.

Later, Daivd was crowned Star Baker.

"What a lovely, lovely thing to do. I’ve been watching for many years," he said.

"It doesn’t get better than this. I’m inspired now to do more, I really am."
