BAKE Off fans have been left baffled by Paul Hollywood's 'rude' remark about a contestant's age.

Tuesdays edition of Bake Off saw the contestants tackle Dessert Week.

As usual, Paul, 56, and fellow judge Prue Leith, 82, made their way around the tent to find out what the bakers were making.

As they approached Dawn, 60, Paul said: "Morning mum, erm, Dawn!"

He added: "You do remind me a little bit of my mum…"

But Dawn was quick to point out: "I'm not that much older than you!"

Indeed, there's only four years between the pair, but Paul said: "No, I know, but I'm just saying you remind me a little bit of my mum…"

However, viewers weren't impressed by his comments, with one writing on Twitter: "Woah Paul Hollywood is just 4 years younger than Dawn and he’s calling her mum. #rude #gbbo."

Another added: "Lol Dawn is 60 and Paul is 56 #Mum #GBBO."

A third tweeted: "Dawn is four years older than Paul #GBBO…"

One wrote on Twitter: "Can’t believe Dawn wasn’t voted off there. #GBBO."
