Great British Bake Off judge PAUL HOLLYWOOD will embark on a nationwide live tour.

PAUL HOLLYWOOD LIVE will see the expert baker appear before the audience in a fully equipped kitchen as he shares “tricks of the trade and maybe even reveal some sugar-coated secrets along the way”, according to a statement.

And after a year that’s seen us all take to the kitchen and don our pinnies, there has never been a better time to take a lesson from the master himself.

He will perform 18 dates on the tour, which starts at New Theatre Oxford in October, getting to the ICC Newport later that month.

Paul has been one of our favourite TV chefs for over a decade, delighting audiences with his easy humour and enthusiasm for baking in Bake OffPaul Hollywood’s City Bakes and Paul Hollywood: A Baker’s Life, amongst many more.

On a personal note, I have had the pleasure of working with Paul at BBC Good Food, and I can tell you he is an absolute delight on stage and will entertain you all evening long.

Speaking about the tour Paul told us…..

“This is a really exciting announcement for me. It is some years since I’ve been on tour so I can’t wait to get back on the road and get baking live on stage once again.

“We’ll have some fun and you’ll learn some tips along the way so it’s the perfect recipe for a great night out.”

It’s a big old tour this one, Paul will also perform in Newcastle, Harrogate, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Sheffield, London, Brighton, Bath, Liverpool, Ipswich, Southend, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stockton-on-Tees, Nottingham and Manchester.
