Laura said she found the seven-week Great British Bake Off filming process “tiring” and claimed she received no support during the process.

“We filmed Bake Off in a heat wave,” she explains. ‘I was away from home for seven weeks. Frankly, I was mentally and physically exhausted.

“We didn’t really get support from the counselors they promised or anything and by the end of the shoot I was literally like, ‘I’m done. I don’t even want to do it.’

“I just cried so much, but when I came out of Bake Off it really hit my confidence every time I was baking.

“I would be so in the back of my mind. I’d say, “You’re a motherfucker, you’re a motherfucker, you’re a motherfucker, you’re a motherfucker, you’re a motherfucker.”

“I bake a little now, but not as much as I used to. I had lost my love a little bit.’
