Paul Hollywood has confessed he is "obsessed" with his Aston Martin and cleans the sports car "every couple of hours".

The Great British Bake Off judge admitted he loves the motor "a little bit too much" and fears he is suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, The Sun has reported.

"You look for little nicks and if I see one my heart misses a beat," he said.

"It (the nick) is just sitting there winding me up ... it's ruining the car. It is OCD. I'm obsessed with my Aston."

The 49-year-old said he also "suffers from OCD" when baking.

"I've got it in the bakery and now I've got it with the car," he added.

His comments were reportedly made on his one-off BBC2 car show Licence To Thrill: Paul Hollywood Meets Aston Martin, which will be aired at 8pm on Sunday.
