Kelly Brook says  Paul Hollywood was “terrifying” on the Great Celebrity Bake Off.

Brook, 40, competes against Carol Vorderman, Rob Rinder and comedian Mo Gilligan in this year’s Channel 4 show, in support of Stand Up To Cancer.

She told Hello! magazine: “I’ve always loved the show. Baking is my hobby – it’s so relaxing when I’m at home.

“But my showstopper didn’t turn out like I’d planned when I was being filmed. I put myself under loads of pressure and made mistakes.

“And Paul was terrifying. When he looked at my cake, the expression on his face said it all.”

Brook has slimmed down from a size 16 to a size 12, calling it her “size sexy” and saying “I feel like my old self again.”

She said of boyfriend Jeremy Parisi: “He loves me whatever my size. He didn’t even notice I’d gained weight.

“He doesn’t care about things like that. He just likes that I sit down and enjoy eating with him. I’m not one of those girls who pushes a salad around her plate.”

She said she is not planning on tying the knot, saying: “We’re happy as we are. Our relationship just gets better and better.”
