The Scots X Men star joins John Bishop, Tom Allen, David Baddiel and Jade Thirlwall, as well as Stacey Dooley for the Stand Up To Cancer edition of the show that kicked off tonight

Former X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke, TV star Anneka Rice, actor Reece Shearsmith, musician Dizzee Rascal as well as singers Anne-Marie and Nadine Coyle and comedian Katherine Ryan are also on board

James, who said very little about his progress on the show, was featured in a pre-program clip looking calmly confident

He can be seen making meringue style tips saying, “My tips are stiff – they stood up to cancer”

James pastries are also shown and at one point he appears to throw a pan on the floor

Dame Kelly Homes, who appeared in Lorraine today to share her progress on the show, said of James, “He was calm and cool and collected and I was on the other side, walking around thinking, ‘Help ‘”

She said, “I clearly didn’t handle the competitive element I did my best Could I have done better? Yes? I loved it It was so much fun”
