Ruby posted a string of tweets which - we’re pretty certain - were aimed at Paul on Thursday (22 September), after the ‘Bake Off’ judge announced that he would be jumping ship to Channel 4, despite the fact that presenters Mel and Sue and fellow judge Mary Berry had opted to stay at the BBC out of “loyalty”.
Accusing Paul of “lingering where the money is”, she also branded him a “peacocking manchild”, before going on to share details about him showing up to work when she was a contestant on the show in a sports car.
Following this, Ruby admitted that she would be “told off” for her candid Twitter thread, but insisted: “I did it all for you my friends.”
This isn’t the first time that Ruby has been less than complimentary about Paul Hollywood since she was a runner-up on the 2013 series.
She branded him a “walking gammon joint” in a tweet last year, which came during an ongoing debate about the show’s British values.
Ruby also rubbed Paul up the wrong way when she came out on Twitter in April 2015, explicitly referencing the fact she’d faced accusations that she flirted with him to get to the ‘Bake Off’ final.
Addressing her detractors, she said: “For those who thought I fancied Paul Hollywood or that I’d ever bang him to get ahead - JOKE’S ON YOU, YOU MASSIVE SHITTING MISOGYNISTS.”
Paul later hit back: “Very happy for you Ruby... but why do you feel it necessary bringing me into your announcement?”
Since her memorable stint on ‘Bake Off’, Ruby has enjoyed success as a food writer, even releasing her own cookbook, ‘Flavour’, earlier this year.
