Paul Hollywood 'cheats' on Mary Berry in smiley selfie with GBBO's Prue
Great British Bake Off fans have joked that Paul Hollywood is “cheating” on his former co-judge Mary Berry, after he shared a behind-the-scenes selfie with new partner Prue Leith.
He teased his Twitter followers with the smiley snap on Friday morning, shortly after the first official photo of the baking show’s new hosts was released.
Quick to jump on the cosy picture, one fan commented: “Cheating on Mary…I’m telling!!!”
Another posted: “Oh Paul, why did you do it! This is not right, we need Mary in the pic!”
“No! No no no no no no no! How could you cheat on Mary like this?!” added one apparently distraught follower.
Paul and Prue will be joined by presenters Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding when the show moves to its new Channel 4 home for the next series.
On Thursday, a first-look photo of the team was shared, featuring all four members clutching cupcakes behind a table laden with mouth-watering baked goods.
But the picture sparked controversy as eagle-eyes fans noticed a plate of scones clearly topped with jam first and then cream.
Meanwhile, previous debate over whether the Mighty Boosh star Noel will be the best fit for the show has died down.
