"I am working out a little bit – doing a bit of walking and running and tinkering… just watching what I’m eating really.”

Explaining what exactly he ate, Paul continued: “Every morning I have a couple of eggs from the farm down the road and I make my own toast.

"So, it’s chucky eggs and soldiers and then in the evening I may have another slice of bread with tomato soup.”

The TV chef added: “I’m on about 1,100 calories a day. I drink about two litres of water as well. I haven’t had alcohol for about four months.”

His Bake Off co-star Prue Leith, 81, also admitted that she always wants "to lose a stone."

She continued: "In fact, I don’t know a woman who doesn’t want to lose a stone, but I never manage it.”

This comes after former host Sue Perkins reminisced about the fun she had filming with Paul.

She told The Sun: "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.
