Great British Bake Off 2020: Fans can't believe how old Prue Leith is

Great British Bake Off fans were left seriously shocked as judge Prue Leith revealed how old she is.

During Tuesday night’s quarter-final show, Prue had set the bakers a particularly tricky technical challenge where they had to try and make a Sussex Pond pudding.

Just watching it looked near enough impossible and the stress of the bakers trying to perfectly steam their puds was real, with judges Prue and Paul Hollywood being left pretty underwhelmed by their efforts.

To quote Prue, the bakers ‘made a complete mess of it’, but viewers were quick to let her tough criticism go, as they were too preoccupied with finding out how old she really is.

While discussing her love of a Sussex Pond pudding, a traditional 17th century dessert, Prue dropped in conversation with hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas that she is in fact 80 years old.

Nobody seemed to care that Paul remarked he was 40 and still loved a steam pudding, with pretty much everyone flocking to Twitter to share their shock over Prue’s age.
