Former Apprentice contestant Katie Hopkins has launched a vicious attack at The Great British Bake Off finalist Ruby Tandoh.
The reality TV star, who also competed in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, branded 21-year-old former model Ruby a "crybaby" who got to the final by "playing the pretty girl card".
Katie wrote in The Sun: "I was sick of her fawning over Paul Hollywood at every turn.
"Ruby saw Paul as her ticket to the final and jumped on board the Hollywood train to fame. Toot! Toot!"
Katie was responding to Ruby's comments in The Guardian, in which she complained The Great British Bake Off had attracted "lazy misogyny".
The Great British Bake Off final drew 9.1 million viewers at its peak, more than Saturday's X Factor and a record for BBC Two.
