Great British Bake Off star stands by words that started Paul Hollywood feud

Great British Bake Off contestant Ruby Tanoh has revealed she no longer watches the show and the theme song makes her feel sick.

Ruby, who competed in the 2013 series of Great British Bake Off, also discussed her infamous feud with judge Paul Hollywood while speaking on the How To Fail podcast.

During the show, there was speculation that judge Paul was flirting with Ruby.

However, Ruby was blocked by the judge soon after her appearance on the popular programme.

The former finalist of series four once branded Paul as a “walking gammon joint” and “peacocking manchild.”

While discussing her views on the podcast she revealed she still stands by her words.

Ruby said: “I don’t particularly lose sleep over that.

“I don’t think that he’s particularly hurt by that, I don’t think he’s very vulnerable to the judgment of others, so yeah, that I don’t feel too bad about.”

After the 2013 series of Great British Bake Off wrapped, Ruby came out as bisexual.

She tweeted: “For those who thought I fancied Paul Hollywood or that I’d ever bang him to get ahead – JOKE’S ON YOU, YOU MASSIVE S**TTING MISOGYNISTS.”

Paul responded to her tweet, asking: “Very happy for you Ruby… but why do you feel it necessary bringing me into your announcement?”

During the podcast, Ruby was asked if she still watches GBBO, she said: “No, not at all, no, I can’t, I appreciate it as a show, I think the format is clearly compelling, but no.

“When I hear the little song, the little jingle at the start, I feel sick.

“I can’t have anything to do with it, I’m afraid.”

The new series of GBBO returned to screens at the end of September.

Fans watched the iconic programme as a dozen amateur bakers arrived in the tent as they try and impress judges Paul and Dame Prue Leith.

The show which is presented by Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding left viewers fuming after last weeks episode after a number of technical difficulties occurred – including lack of subtitles, audio issues and “frozen” TV screens.

Taking to Twitter one frustrated fan wrote: "No subtitles during #GBBO! Thanks, @Channel4 now I got to rely on raw talent – the talent that is listening to what other people have to say instead of looking at the words on the bottom of my screen!"
