Paul has reportedly been left furious after his face was used in an online scam to con fans.

The Great British Bake Off star, 53, warned fans about the scam in a Facebook post as it was claimed that an account had been set up in his name asking fans for money and nude pictures.

It comes after one fan revealed that she was targeted by fraudsters claiming to be Paul after she commented on a post on his real account.
