Former Bake Off star makes a bald statement and SHAVES hair off

What a transformation!

| Updated:

Most people were watching The Great British Bake Off final on Wednesday, but there was one ex-contestant making headlines elsewhere.

The chef took to social media to unveil their dramatic new look, having made the VERY brave decision to shave all of their hair off.

Recognise this lady?

Ruby Tandoh shared a close-up, arty photo with her fans on Twitter, which she captioned: “do what you want.”

Talk about powerful!

She then gave everybody an insight into why she shed all of her locks.

“I realised I was always hiding behind my big mop of hair and pulling it over my face so I was like… bye curls, hello being unapologetic.!

Twitter followers were LOVING her new look and were full of praise.

One wrote: “OMG you look absolutely stunning.”

A fan also said: “Gurl you is fierce!”

Another former Bake-Off star Tamal Ray commented on her look too and hilariously said: “I’ve always been to terrified that my head would look like a wonky potato if I shaved it all off.”

Referring to Stranger Things character Eleven, he also suggested a pretty cool idea for a Halloween costume!

Ruby got through to the finals of the 2013 series of GBBO and found herself caught up in the centre of cruel, untrue speculation.

People were saying that she had only made it through the competition because she had flirted with Paul Hollywood.

She absolutely SHUT down those rumours in April of 2015 when she came out as gay by posting a message and video of Diana Ross’ I’m Coming Out.

“me to my parents today. feeling lucky and joyful and f r e e. over and Out,” she wrote.

She then added: “P.s. for those who thought I fancied Paul Hollywood to get ahead.

“Joke’s on you, you massive misogynists.”

Ruby is playing by her own rules, and we love it, you look gorgeous!
