Mary Berry admits Paul is 'quite sexy'

She was known to give the occasional wink to a contestant on The Great British Bake Off, and put on a very flirty display when meeting David Beckham last week.

But now Mary Berry has gone even further in her unexpected declarations of affection - by revealing she thinks Paul is ‘quite sexy’.

The 82-year-old, who has been married for as long as Paul, 51, has been alive, was asked at a charity event if her former Bake Off co-judge was ‘as sexy as he looks’.

And despite initially deflecting the question by saying ‘I think you should be the judge of that’, she later added: ‘He is quite sexy, but for goodness sake don’t tell him’.

The veteran chef was speaking at an event hosted by Child Bereavement UK before announced that he and Alexandra, his wife of nearly 20 years, were separating.

During their time on the Bake Off together on BBC One, the duo became known for their lewd innuendos.
