Bake Off viewers left blushing by Paul Hollywood's 'X-rated' question to Prue Leith – but all isn't as it seems

PAUL Hollywood left Great British Bake Off viewers in stitches with a crude joke on Tuesday night.

The 56-year-old baker was gathered around Olympic champion Mo Farah’s cooking station with fellow judge Prue Leith as he prepared for the first challenge of the competition.

As co-host Matt Lucas began making small talk with the trio, he introduced Prue as a dame, Mo as a Sir and himself as a queen.

He then asked Paul: “So what are you?”

Paul then stunned viewers by replying: “A master baker.”

Fans immediately took to Twitter to express their shock, with many believing Paul was making a sexual innuendo.

Alongside an emoji of a shocked face, one person penned: "Did Paul say master baker or masturbater?"

Echoing their comments, someone else said: “Master baker. It did sound like the other word though.”

While a third added: “Paul calling himself the master baker caught me by surprise."

The official Bake Off Twitter account even chimed in on the rude comment.

Posting a video of the conversation on the official account with subtitles, GBBO said: “Thank god for subtitling in videos to avoid any inappropriate mishearings”.

Mo was joined by fellow celebs, Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly, Death in Paradise star Ben Miller and Strictly Come Dancing star Moti Mabuse.

Elsewhere on the episode, Mo left fans in stitches when he jokingly asked Alexa for help when tasked with making 18 lemon and pistachio biscotti, accidentally setting off virtual assistant devices across the nation.
