The Great British Bake Off is undoubtedly a very British affair – with cakes. But the icing on this baking show is Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood’s revelation that the royal Family and the PM all watch the show!



When asked about the cookery competition’s celebrity following Paul Hollywood revealed the show is a hit in Buckingham Palace and No.10 Downing Street!



“William and Kate watch it! David Cameron watches it too. I know this because I sent them a book [of mine],” said Paul.

“The prime minister sent back a lovely letter saying [his wife] Sam bakes as well and that they did their own Bake off in Number 10! To all the celebrities who say they’re a fan of the show I say – get your arse into gear and apply for Celebrity Bake Off!”



We presume he wasn’t talking about Will, Kate or David…



The Great British Bake Off gets underway on BBC1, Wednesday 6th August.
