Sue, 47, told the audience: “Genuinely hand on heart for the new Bake Off team. They are going to need it.

“They are about to discover what Mel and I left for them in the ground sheet.”

But she didn’t stop there.

She then quipped: “Right best crack on before someone sells the format to Channel 4.”
