The chef opened up on the one downside to judging the nation's best bakes.
Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith has revealed she gains weight while filming the show because of having to sample all of the sweet treats.
Prue, 78, told The Sun: "I'm terrible because I really get fat at the drop of a hat.
"I reckon if you just ate what you felt like, and it is delicious, you'd eat your way through a showstopper, and that would be 3,000 calories."
Prue added: "It's hopeless - you just have to discipline yourself."
She went on to claim co-star Paul Hollywood has better self-control and "only cuts off a little bit" of the sweet treats.
Many fans felt her exit was unfair and instead felt that Rahul Mandal should have left the show after three disappointing bakes from the 30-year-old research scientist.
Viewers took to Twitter to rant about the results of the quarter finals with fans even pleading for 'justice for Manon'!
The strong opinions came after all of Rahul's three bakes were panned by judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, with his signature bake even being labelled 'not safe to eat'.
