Great British Bake Off fans in stitches over Paul Hollywood’s ‘furry garden’


Fans were beside themselves last night when of TV’s most popular shows, The Great British Bake Off, returned to our screens.

And, as ever, it wasn’t just the incredible bakes that wowed fans – it was the double entendres and hilariously suggestive comments that tickled millions of viewers.

The opening episode of the 10th-anniversary series certainly did not disappoint.

Things got off to a saucy start when Paul and Prue visited Spanish-born Helena on her bench.

The contestant began talking about her ‘fairy garden’ cake, but Paul was left embarrassed when he misheard and thought she said her ‘furry garden’ cake.

“Oh Paul, I know what you’re thinking,” Helena laughed when she realised what the co-host thought she had said.

“How big is your . . . erm . . . fairy garden?” Paul then asked.

Next up for the innuendo-fest was contestant Phil who was making a space-themed cake in the Showstopper Challenge.

But fans were in hysterics at Phil’s, ahem, method in shaping the icing.

Viewers took to Twitter to voice their delight at the puns and suggestive comments.

In a later exchange, contestant David was making a snake-themed cake.

Paul told David that he had “a slow worm” when he was younger.

This prompted host Noel Fielding to chime in with: “Some of us have snakes, some of us have worms, Paul.”
