Joining host Noel Fielding, the 46-year-old joined in on a video introducing himself to the Great British Bake-Off team.

Judge Prue Leith took to Twitter following the news of Lucas' casting, tweeting, "So excited to be working with @RealMattLucas, the combination of him and @noelfielding11, will we stop laughing long enough to get any filming done??!!!"
