Great British Bake Off’s Paul Hollywood has revealed he’s ‘p*ssed off’ this year after gaining weight during filming for the new series.

The acclaimed Channel 4 show is set to return on Tuesday with 12 contestants stepping into the notorious tent in a bid to be crowned the UK’s best baker.

Paul, who serves as a judge with Prue Leith on the programme, was annoyed at himself for putting on just shy of one stone during production after having lost a stone and a half.

‘I put on 12 pounds in that b***dy tent,’ Paul said. ‘Prue put on a pound! A pound during Bake Off? That’s ridiculous.’

He continued: ‘All I wanted to do was go home to try and lose the weight again! I am p****d off this year for the first time about it, because I was doing really well.

‘Lockdown was doing me good, not bad. But my exercise regime changed when I was in Bake Off because I wasn’t allowed to leave the bubble to cycle.’

Paul was cycling 10 miles at a time before production on the new series kicked off, however during Bake Off filming he was confined to his room where he spent his time writing a book.

‘I was getting back into old habits, so I sort of expected it,’ he added to lovesunday magazine. ‘Now I’m back on it again – I’ve lost a good couple of pounds this week.’

The cast and crew, much like before, were obliged to test and self-isolate before entering into a Covid-free bubble at Down Hall Hotel for six weeks.

Apparently, those in the Channel 4 show’s bubble were treated to an ‘indie festival’ hosted by Noel Fielding and his girlfriend Lliana Bird, and many a night with the judges propping up the bar.

Fellow presenter Matt Lucas, 47, also hosted a quiz, according to reports.

The Great British Bake Off returns to Channel 4 on Tuesday September 21.
