Paul Hollywood is reportedly set to present a new BBC series about his other great love - cars and motorbikes.

The Great British Bake Off judge is said to be delighted to have landed the new project that sees him branch out from cakes and pies, according to the Sunday People.

Baker Paul, 48, owns cars including an Aston Martin DB9 and a new Aston Martin Vantage, so he is said to be excited about the prospect of working on a programme that indulges his interest.

A source said: "This is just his perfect job. He loves cars and cooking - now he will present shows about both. The BBC have clearly shown how much they are committed to him by doing this."

Paul said recently: "I've been into cars all my life. Aston Martin employs people here - they're British, they're Bond - so when I got my DB9 it was a very special day.

"I'll be paying for it for the rest of my life but it was something I'd wanted since I had a DB5 poster on my wall."
