'Great British Bake Off' judge Paul Hollywood lives off bacon butties during the daytime and then polishes off a McDonald's when he finishes filming

Paul Hollywood lives off bacon butties and McDonald's meals.

The 'Great British Bake Off' judge - who has been a baker since his teens - gorges on the pork-filled sandwiches on a daily basis when he is filming the BBC Two show and then ends his day by munching a McDonald's, much to the frustration of his co-star Mary Berry.

She said: "He lives on bacon butties and I have a real go at him.

"For breakfast he'll have a bacon buttie - that's allowed - then what does he want for lunch? Bacon buttie. And if he's offered an egg on it, he'll ask for two. And then what happens on the way home?"

Paul replied: "A McDonald's, usually."

Despite the 47-year-old baker's penchant for calorific treats, Mary insists the tasty snacks are not having a negative affect on Paul's physique.

She told heat magazine: "Doesn't he look fantastic in a shirt? I think he looks smashing.

"If I catch him in those T-shirts, I say, 'Paul, you look just like everybody else.' Also, his trousers - have you seen them?

"He's going with the trend, but it looks like he can't afford any without holes in them."
