How did we talk you into this? Well, if it wasn’t for char­ity I might not have done it. I’ve done some cof­fee morn­ings for Macmil­lan Can­cer Support this week too so I thought I might as well put my 15 min­utes of fame to good use and ap­pear in GT. And all my mates said I should do this naked shoot. You fin­ished film­ing in April, did you have any idea then that when you flung your Baked Alaska into the bin it would cause such a furore? We all knew on the show it was go­ing to be a big part of the episode be­cause no one has ever thrown their bak­ing into the bin be­fore. But I didn’t re­alise just how big it was go­ing to be. I was shocked by the re­ac­tion on Twit­ter be­cause I didn’t know how pas­sion­ate peo­ple were about it. Have you spo­ken to Diana since? Yes, I chat­ted to her be­fore and after the show and I thought it was very un­fair the way she was treated. She took it out of the fridge in the heat of the mo­ment and there was no mal­ice about it. The hate cam­paign against her wasn’t pleas­ant. Have you got many gay fans? I have a big gay fol­low­ing on Twit­ter and a lot of guys make com­ments that are com­pli­men­tary. I didn’t re­alise the gay com­mu­nity was so into bak­ing! How­ever, I have quite a few gay friends but they don’t re­ally bake. It’s me who’s al­ways mak­ing cakes for birthdays. Fi­nally, how are you not fat? I have a very high metabolism so I can eat what I want and stay skinny!
