GBBO host Noel Fielding just made a lame gay sex joke about him and Paul Hollywood

The stars of the Great British Bake Off

Noel Fielding, one of the hosts of TV show the Great British Bake Off, has made a tone-deaf gay sex joke on Twitter.

In the post, the comic shares a picture of GBBO judge Paul Hollywood standing behind him, along with the caption: β€˜This should put to rest any rumours that me and blue eyes @PaulHollywood don’t get on πŸ™‚ ha ha ha x’.

‘Gay sex isn’t there for your cheap & nasty humour’

While some thought the post was hilarious, others weren’t so amused.

There were also some amused, albeit less nuanced responses

Known for his eccentric sense of style, Noel made his name in the comedy The Mighty Boosh, on which he played Vince, a character that was hinted to be bisexual.

He co-hosts GBBO with Sandi Toksvig, one of the highest profile gay women on British television.

The Great British Bake Off recently moved from the BBC to Channel 4.

The new series has won positive reviews and record-breaking viewing figures for the broadcaster.

Channel 4 and Noel Fielding have been approached for comment.
