Paul Hollywood piled on the pounds during filming for the Great British Bake Off

OHMYGOSSIP — Paul Hollywood put on “12 bloody pounds” filming the new series of ‘The Great British Bake Off’.
The 55-year-old judge piled on the weight whilst tasting the contestants calorific creations, completely ruining all the hard work he’d done to lose weight beforehand, which included giving up alcohol.
Speaking to Best magazine, he said: “I put on 12 bloody pounds in that tent. Before I started, I lost a stone-and-a half.
“I was cycling and running, and getting quite fit.”
And fellow judge Prue Leith says the temptation was greater this time around as some the bakes were “damn near perfect”.
The 81-year-old restaurateur said: “For one of my technical bakes we were faced with 12 not identical, but damn near perfect bakes.”
And despite the constant temptation Prue remained far more disciplines than Paul, as she only put on a pound in weight.
Which Paul rather unpleasantly joked he could lose simply by going to the toilet.
He added: “I could go to the loo and drop more than that.”
Meanwhile, previous ‘Great British Bake-Off winner John Whaite admitted he’d struggled with suicidal thoughts after triumphing on the Channel 4 show.
The 33-year-old star is set to return to the spotlight, having been confirmed for the upcoming series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, and he has opened up about his struggles, after he quit law school as he battled through pneumonia following his 2012 win.
He admitted: “I kind of felt like I’d failed.
“And I felt suicidal.
“I really really did think I was going to end it.”
John decided to “escape” when he was struggling with his thoughts and headed off to live on a Canadian farm with his partner Paul, in what he described as “privileged, entitled escapism”.
He added: “They were really strict, it was get up at 6.30, make breakfast, have coffee together, out by 7am, have the animals fed and it really was the most grounding experience because it was … I’m not going to lie, it was privileged escapism.
“There are so many people in this country and in the world who would go through the same mental health issues that I’ve been through and wouldn’t be able to afford to take the time to do that or leave their kids.
“So I must acknowledge it was privileged, entitled escapism.”
