Dominic Cooper vs Bill Bailey

Celebrity Face Off continues, and this time Preacher star Dominic Cooper is pitted against Comedian Bill Bailey to find the world’s fastest person with a failed early career in a band. 

Speaking about the lap Dominic said: "I don’t know if I’ve won… I didn’t see Bill’s lap, I just saw him go out onto the track .. and it started to drizzle so, hopefully, he was put off by that! The experience of that drive was most exciting for me, but I must say, in the back my mind I had many thoughts of friends who had been up on the track and what times they have got. So, hopefully I have beaten Bill.

"I’m very competitive, and when I’m on tour I like to go out and have track days. So, wherever I am in the world, I will go out there and take a big ridiculous car out and hammer it around the track. So, I love doing it and I really want to win obviously! I think I put on a good time…I’m looking forward to hearing about it!"
