Great British Bake Off’s Prue Leith had Matt Lucas and Paul Hollywood lost for words as she delivered the best double entendre of the series so far.

In scenes that aired tonight, the television judge, 81, made an innocent remark as she inspected some of George’s signature choux pastry doughnuts.

‘Quite often I need two holes so that I can squirt,’ Prue said, unaware of the filthy innuendo, as she explained the importance of making sure a filled doughnut really is filled.

She then went on to tell George: ‘You squeeze the bag. When you meet that little bit of resistance, it usually means it’s full.’

Prue’s co-stars, however, couldn’t help but notice the filthy innuendo, with Paul later wiping away a tear as he struggled to contain his amusement.


Noticing that Paul and Matt were overcome with laughter, Prue demanded to know what was funny.

‘We’re just children,’ Matt replied, with Paul adding: ‘Sorry Dame Prue.’

The internet also responded accordingly, with many stating it was the ‘innuendo of the century’.

‘GBBO isn’t even pretending to be wholesome anymore,’ added another.

Prue is no stranger to being a source of light relief with her innuendo-ladened responses.

Last year, she outdid herself in biscuit week, telling one contestant: ‘I remember worrying a bit about your very large nuts.’

She then went on to add: ‘That one’s a sort of squirt.’


Great British Bake Off airs Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4.
