'No medication' for Bake Off jokes

Great British Bake Off presenter Sue Perkins has revealed that her bad gags on the show even earned a rebuke during a visit to a consultant.

She and co-host Mel Giedroyc have had the nation groaning with their jokes on the BBC1 cookery contest.

Perkins, 45, told the Radio Times they were even raised when she attended a recent appointment with a doctor.

She explained: "He said, 'I can give you something for your problem but there's no medication possible for your terrible Bake Off jokes. You should both be ashamed of yourselves'. This is a consultant."

The presenter, who launches a new ITV daily afternoon show with Giedroyc later this month, has said she is trying to make a difference to her life by performing "random acts of kindness".

She told the magazine, which is out today: "It has to be done so that the person you're being kind to doesn't know you've done it - so there's nothing of the self in it."

Perkins also told how she is trying to emphasise the positive things about each day. She said: "Every single day and every single night I also write down three things that I have loved about the day - so you're always thankful and you're always trying to do something good.

"I've done it for the last six months and I will do it for the rest of my life."
