BAKE Off fans were left in hysterics as Gemma Collins flirted up a storm with Paul Hollywood – yet fans were left fearing for the baker.
The TOWIE favourite certainly dressed to impress for the Channel 4 show in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.
Gemma, 42, wore a pretty pink floral dress for her Bake Off stint, in which she whipped up a two-tier hot pink cake adorned with sparkles.
She made sure her glowing tan was on-point and added a thick flick of black eyeliner.
Gemma set out her claim from the start when she told the camera: “The thought of seeing Paul Hollywood is really exciting but I am just going to stay focussed.”
She then talked of the “depth” of her sponge as she confessed to being an avid watcher of Paul, 57, and the show.
After dousing the mixture in rose flavouring she said it was a “symbol of her love for Paul Hollywood.”
And it might have proved effective, as the top baker dubbed her creation as “fascinating.”
Clearly besotted, the GC told him: ” That is the most beautiful thing anyone’s ever said to me.”
After the feedback she gushed: “He told me it was fascinating he liked my cake.”
Bake Off’s official Twitter page poked fun at her banter and remarked: “Spare a thought for @PaulHollywood right now…”
One fan then reacted: “Gemma’s reactions to Paul are hilarious.”
Another put: “Imagine having the confidence of Gemma Collins…”
A third commented: “Gemma describing what cake she be making and she fancies Paul.”
One then remarked: “Living for Gemma’s attempt at a cake. It looks and probably also tastes like a bath bomb.”
