‘Tubby Goth’ Noel Fielding: I really love cake
NOEL FIELDING has told Great British Bake Off fans to simmer down after sparking outrage by saying he wouldn’t eat any cake in his role as show host.
The comedian will steer the new series alongside Sandi Toksvig, 59, when it moves to Channel 4.
But he left fans stunned when he said he wouldn’t try contestants’ treats because: ‘No one likes a tubby gut’.
The Mighty Boosh star, 44, yesterday clarified his remarks after a backlash from fans.
Poking fun at the row Fielding tweeted: ‘What I said (as a joke) in The Sunday Times was, “Nobody likes a tubby goth”. I was taking the p*** out of myself. I love cake.’
