Gemma’s naughty suggestion came as a player asked her help on a cooking question.

The player was asked: “Blind baking is a technique that might be used when making which of these baked goods?”

The options were chocolate chip cookies, Victoria sandwich cake, Bakewell tart or sticky toffee pudding.

Gemma said: “I love Bakewell tarts. To be honest I love them all. But… I think it’s Bakewell tart.

“Do you though? What makes you think that?”

The player replied: “When I watch baking, Bake Off or anything, blind baking is when they put the beans in.

“It makes the pastry set like it’s got filling in it.”

Gemma then admitted: “I’m pleased you watched. I just can’t take my eyes off Paul Hollywood.”

She turned to Carol and said: “Carol, he’d be one for you him.”

However, Carol exclaimed: “No!”

Meanwhile, Carol wrote on Instagram earlier today: “I’m on The Wheel #MichaelMcIntyre tonight after the @bbcstrictly final 8.20pm.

“@gemmacollins is hilarious…I love that girl.”
