The Great British Bake Off contestant
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!
