‘We need 12 muffins to go!’: Great British Bake Off’s Paul Hollywood reveals he once served Tom Cruise a hefty room service order

Great British Bake Off’s Paul Hollywood has revealed he once served Tom Cruise a special room service request at the Dorchester hotel in London.

The celebrity chef, 56, who was working at the hotel before finding fame on the hit TV show, recalled the moment where he had to cook up 12 muffins for the Top Gun star, 50.

He told The Mirror: ‘I remember Tom Cruise was in and we used to do blueberry muffins with pumpkin.’

‘And we’d run out of them for room service for some reason and one of the room service guys came down and said, ‘We need 12 muffins to go’.

‘I went, ‘What? Why? We need to make some but we’re not making them yet’. He said, ‘No, Tom Cruise wants them’. I went, ‘What? OK!’ I said, ‘Right lads, we’ve got to make some – we need to get these out’.

Paul concluded: ‘So we made these blueberry muffins for him and they were very nice.’

The 13th series of The Great British Bake Off is set to kick off later this year.

And as Paul gears up for another judging stint alongside Paul Leith, he revealed in a new interview that he purposely says the word ‘moist’ in ‘every show’.

The chef admitted that after a viewer branded the word ‘inappropriate’, he went out of his way to utter it at every opportunity when critiquing contestants bakes.

He told The Mirror: ‘Someone once said to me they did not like the way I say ‘moist’ on Bake Off. They said it was an inappropriate word but I think it is a great word. I have made sure that I now say it in every show.’

Another personal quirk that he likes to display on the show is his love for destroying the contestants showstopper bakes, which they painstakingly spent hours constructing.

Opening up on the great pleasure he takes from plunging a knife into the cakes, he said: ‘I cut everything. I don’t care. I like to see them wince. Our job is to get in there and sometimes their flavours are in the middle.’

But while the TV star opened up on his penchant for winding up viewers and the bakers, Paul told how participants in the Channel 4 show have a lot of ‘bottle’ to bake for himself and Prue, 82.

He explained: ‘You need to be very brave to do Bake Off as you have to come in front of Prue and myself and be timed. It takes a lot of bottle to go into that tent and bake.’

He went on to say that timing is ‘the hardest part to deal with’ and says that he will also ‘walk away’ if contestants ask him to.

It comes after in May, the star admitted that he would never have taken the Bake Off job if he knew how it would affect his private life.

He told FEMAIL: ‘Would I have done Bake Off if I’d known all this stuff was going to happen, the loss of my private life?

‘No, I wouldn’t have done it. The financial benefits are great. It’s a job, and to earn money you have to work hard, but ultimately what matters is your private life and your anonymity.

‘Anything to do with family, you have to be careful. Trying to maintain family relationships is really difficult when they’re in the public domain.

‘It’s hard enough outside the public domain, but to do it in the public domain is impossible.’
