‘Great British Bake Off’ star Ruby Tandoh has taken to Twitter, praising her fans supporters for their kind words after her coming out tweets.

The ‘Bake Off’ alumna made the decision to come out on Thursday afternoon, and in possibly the best string of tweets we’ve ever seen, Ruby shared her thoughts - and threw in a Diana Ross video for good measure.

Since then, hundreds of people have sent Ruby supportive messages, including a number of celebrities such as Caitlin Moran, David Baddiel and ‘Bake Off’ presenter Sue Perkins.

A number of people have also been inspired to come out following Ruby’s decision.

Ruby has now thanked her many supporters with a series of new Twitter posts:

However, one person who wasn’t completely chuffed by Ruby’s tweets was Paul Hollywood, and the ‘Bake Off’ judge has questioned why Ruby mentioned him in her tweets.

“Very happy for you Ruby... but why do you feel it necessary bringing me into your announcement?” he wrote on Twitter, later adding: “For all those having a pop over what I said I'm thinking of my family seeing it too .. X”

Ruby received numerous unpleasant messages when she appeared on ‘Bake Off’, and a number of people accused her of flirting with Paul to get ahead - which was clearly not the case.

Writing in the Guardian after the series had been screened, Ruby stated: “The criticism ranged from the gently cynical to the downright obnoxious, but as the series went on I noticed an increasing degree of personal vitriol and misogyny.”
