The 53-year-old TV chef welcomed a host of famous faces into the tent for the star studded version of the Chanel 4 cooking show in aid of 'Stand Up 2 Cancer'' - which is set to air this Spring - and he admitted he picked on Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss the most.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he confessed: "Richard said to everyone, 'Please don't mention 'Jaws' too much'. But we mentioned it all the time.

"We made a lot of gags about the film. Noel Fielding was doing it too - he's very good at that sort of thing. So we ­mentioned 'Jaws' a lot."

Despite giving the 72-year-old actor a run for his money, Paul was starstruck when he first heard Richard was joining the cast.

He said: "I couldn't believe it when I was told he'd signed up. I thought, 'It can't be that Richard Dreyfuss.'"

The 'Jaws' legend will be joined by documentary-maker Louis Throux and 'Your Beautiful' hitmaker James Blunt, as well as 'The Masked Singer' star Patsy Palmer, 'The One Show' co-host Alex Jones, Judge Rinder, 'This Morning' reporter Alison Hammond, former 'Gogglebox' star Scarlett Moffatt and model Kelly Brook.

The line-up also features 'Queer Eye' fashion expert Tan France, 'The Inbetweeners' star James Buckley, former 'Men Behaving Baldy' actress Caroline Quentin, 2018 'Strictly Come Dancing' finalist Joe Sugg and 'Love Island' star Ovie Soko.

The cast is rounded off by comedians Russell Howard, Jenny Eclair, Joel Dommett and Mo Gilligan.

Paul admitted he can't wait the upcoming special to come onto screens for everyone to witness all his best gags.

He promised: "It's such a funny series. I have been waiting for them to air. I can't wait for everyone to see it. I still get a buzz when I walk into the tent."
