Sue Perkins' Girlfriend Anna Richardson Encourages Fans To Share Their Support As Presenter Quits Twitter Over 'Top Gear' Abuse

Sue Perkins' Fans Put A Smile Back On Her Face

Anna Richardson has encouraged fans of her partner, Sue Perkins, to show their support, following the 'Bake Off' presenter's decision to take a break from Twitter, after receiving abusive messages.


Sue revealed on Tuesday that she was going to be away from the social media site “for a bit”, after she was bombarded with abuse from fans of ‘Top Gear’, following reports she was the new bookies’ favourite to replace Jeremy Clarkson on the show.

To “cheer up” her partner, Anna took to her own Twitter later that day, encouraging Sue's fans to share selfies showing their support.

Anna explained: “If you get the chance, draw a kiss on a piece of paper, take a selfie & post. I'll give them to her, it'll cheer her up.”

Unsurprisingly,it didn’t take long for people to get snap-happy, all in the name of putting a smile back on Sue's face.

We were pleased to see that Anna’s idea has clearly done the trick, as she posted another tweet thanking participants for sharing what she dubbed their “Sue smooches”.

Anna confirmed at the tail-end of last year that she and Sue were an item, describing her as “amazing” in an interview with Lorraine Kelly back in January.
