Former Great British Bake Off host Sue Perkins is eating six vegan sausage rolls from Greggs every day in lockdown

FORMER Great British Bake Off host Sue Perkins has been living on a diet of six vegan sausage rolls from Greggs a day in lockdown – despite having tasted some of the country's top pastry creations.

At a time when the nation has embraced home baking, comedian Sue, 51, confessed she has been surviving on savoury treats delivered to her door by the high street lunch spot.

She said: "All I really have existed on – and I am going to say a brand and I don’t care, I don’t know what the remits are… Greggs. All I care about is Greggs.

“I get six vegan sausage rolls at any one time and they do not last. Obsessed. Delicious."

She added during a FANE talk with comedy partner Mel Giedroyc, 52: “Plus the pizza slice is… I mean, you’re a long way from Napoli, but still."

Sue's admission comes after revealing she terrorised Paul Hollywood, 55, on Bake Off, which she hosted with Mel from 2010 until its final BBC series in 2016, by hitting him with baguettes.

She said: "For a while Paul and I only spoke through the medium of violence. Early doors, there were a lot of props, big lifelike plastic baguettes.

"I’d smash a cob into his b******s. I mean, really hard as well, no messing. Like a stab.

"If I’d just finished a link that wasn’t really going anywhere, he’d appear and uppercut me with a baguette that would knock my teeth together."

Sue stunned fans earlier this year when she was unveiled as Dragon on The Masked Singer.

The star made it to the semi-final of the contest, beating professional musicians including Spice Girl Mel B, A-ha's Morten Harket, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Martine McCutcheon.
