The 55-year-old found himself especially annoyed with the added weight as he had only just lost several pounds.
“I put on 12 bloody pounds in that tent,” he complained to Best magazine.
“Before I started, I lost a stone-and-a half. I was cycling and running, and getting quite fit.”
Prue Leith, 81, only gained a pound in comparison, trying all the baker’s delicious treats.
“I could go to the loo and drop more than that,” quipped Paul.
Paul cannot be blamed for wanting to scoff all the tasty treats, as the pair said the standards this year were extremely high.
