Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith praises 'sweet' Paul Hollywood for offering her advice on judging role

His fellow judge on The Great British Bake Off has praised the chef for showing her the ropes on her first series last year.

Ahead of the start of this year’s run next week, its second on Channel 4 after leaving the BBC, Prue admitted she still does not feel as sharp on screen as the veteran critic – but is getting there with his guidance.

Prue said: “He helped me find my feet and I have learned such a lot from him.

“He is an absolute genius when he sums up the judging with few words. It’s straight to camera, no ‘Erms’ or ‘Ahhs’, he is succinct.

“Whereas I go round the houses with lots of words, so I have tried to pick up on his critique and absorb it. I am not as good as him, but I think I am getting there.

“We are so settled into our roles. Paul and I have a really good relationship, I followed his lead but now it’s very even handed.

“He has been absolutely sweet and so professional to work with.”

Paul has certainly made an impression on his judging partner.
