Lorraine Pascale isn't keen on replacing 'Great British Bake Off' judge Paul Hollywood on the BBC programme if he decides to quit after his time in America on 'The American Baking Competition', a US version of the show
Lorraine Pascale has no interest in replacing Paul Hollywood on 'Great British Bake Off'.
The TV chef is a big admirer of her fellow celebrity baker, and though the "silver fox" is heading to America to front 'The American Baking Competition', a US version of his hit show, she insists she wouldn't want to step into his shoes if he decides to depart the UK programme.
She said: "No, I love baking and I wish Paul every success but that will always be the domain of the silver fox!"
Perhaps one of the reasons why Lorraine isn't keen to work on such a show is her reluctance to share her kitchen space.
She told BANG Showbiz: "Am I bossy? I don't let anyone else in when I cook!"
Lorraine - who is working with American Express to celebrate and inspire those who are pursuing their passions and realising their potential - admits she is sometimes negative about what she can achieve and pushes herself to do better by surrounding herself with positive people.
She said: "My inner voice can sometimes be quite negative, so it is about attempting to change that internal dialogue which sometimes says that you cannot do things. I suppose reading good books and being around positive people is a good way too. People that want to take you higher mentally and emotionally as they are the building blocks to success in my opinion."
