You’ll most likely recognise Fortune for her role as Colette on The Mindy Project from 2015 to 2017, but Fortune had a successful comedy career before her acting took off.

Adam Scott

Any comedy movie fan will instantly recognise Adam Scott from his role as Derek in The Hangover and as Ben Wyatt in Parks and Rec.

But this Hollywood actor has movie he’s not all laughs in more recent roles opposite Reese Witherspoon in TV drama Big Little Lies. 

Gabby Douglas

Gabby Douglas has achieved more than many could hope to in their lifetime at the age of just 24.

She has three Olympic gold medals under her belt and is the 2015 World all-around silver medalist. Definitely a good choice to judge the sporting cakes.
