Great British Bake Off fans were horrified during Tuesday's show as Paul Hollywood came out with a filthy innuendo to Prue Leith.

The judges were discussing how to make the perfect Horn of Plenty, and Paul asked: "So Prue do you want to try some of my horn?"

"You can have that piece," he added, as Prue thanked him and took a slice.

One fan tweeted: "Horn of plenty? #GBBO excelling itself tonight. And Paul asking Prue if she'd like a bit of his horn…."

"Paul Hollywood asking Prue Leith if she would like some of his horn?! Classic Bake Off innuendo!" added another.

"Paul’s delivery of that “Prue, would you like some of my horn?” was just so awful omg. Hard to believe a British tv star can’t be bawdy but here we are," complained another.

A fourth wondered: "Did anyone else find Paul's offer of his horn to Prue ever so slightly creepy and ill judged?"

Paul went on: "It's the perfect challenge, I think, for the bakers, it's got no flour in this so it's supposed to be ground almonds in there.

"Once you've actually made the dough, you've got to divide it up and then they've got to shake it."

The show took an emotional turn when Laura Adlington burst into tears as she struggled to read the confusing recipe.

“Never heard of it. Never eaten it. Never seen it. It's going to be fun isn't it?" she said.

And weeping at the pages of instructions, she added: “This is like literally my worst nightmare, I don't have a logical brain, I can't do this.”

Seeing her crying, Matt said: “Stressful isn't it?”

He reassured her: "There is something in you that will get you to the next step.

"Because if there wasn't, you wouldn't be here. You're going to smash it.”

“Bless you, you're the best,” Laura replied.

“If I achieve this I'm going to have the biggest glass of gin and sambucca chasers!"
