Big fan Mel lets it shine for Kempo
BAKE Off host Mel Giedroyc admitted she’s got a huge crush on her Let It Shine co-stars Martin Kemp and Gary Barlow.
Mel, 48, is hosting the new BBC talent show after quitting Bake Off in the summer after it was bought by Channel 4.
And the Let It Shine judges are making her hot under the collar.
She said: “I’ve slyly taken to calling Martin ‘Kempo’, which I’m not sure he likes very much.
“They’re a great bunch and one mustn’t favouritise, but it’s a joy to have Kempo in the mix.
“I’ve been a very big fan of Spandau Ballet.
“I couldn’t look him in the eye when I first met him. I had to look him in the chest, which is worse.
“And Barlow is sensational, my hand was on his… it’s a joy for a perimenopausal woman! It’s a joy to be doing the job!”
Mel is joined by Graham Norton to present the show, which has a third judge in Aussie songstress Dannii Minogue. BEES have five eyes.
