Not the likeliest of duels but Paul Hollwood and Sue Perkins are at loggerheads amid reports of a rift between the pair.
The ding dong started when Paul, tells contestants: ‘Remember, it’s the semi-finals. So it’s not only got to taste good, it’s got to look good, too.’
Sue isn’t sure the judge has given the most interesting pointers though, retorting as the judges leave the tent: ‘Paul, I think you have an appointment at Banalities R Us, just over there. Mary, we’ll see you later.’
Leaving Paul to look away disgruntled.
Could it be the fact Paul is leaving the BBC to front the show on rivals Channel 4 and Sue was an avid campaigner to keep the show with the beeb, or is it that Paul Hollywood is simply a miserable old git who needs knocking down a peg or two, sometimes.
Whatever it may be the semi final is sure to be hotting up!
