Sue Perkins Reveals She'd Adopt A Child In The Future, After Being Told She Can't Have Children Of Her Own

‘Great British Bake Off’ host Sue Perkins has revealed her hopes to adopt a child one day, after being told she’d be unable to have children of her own, due to a benign tumour in her pituitary gland.

The TV personality, who makes up one half of presenting duo Mel and Sue, has said that just because she’s unable to conceive naturally, she hasn’t been put off becoming a mother in the future, and would like to adopt a child if the opportunity arises.

Speaking to MailOnline, she said: “One day, maybe, I might be privileged enough to adopt a kid.

“But I don't know where you find a child. There aren't just children wandering around, and if there are you should probably go to a police station. You can't take them into your house. Who knows, every door is open. It's good.”

Sue is currently in a relationship with her fellow presenter, Anna Richardson, and recently revealed that the doctor who delivered the news she was unable to have children shocked her with a homophobic comment.

In excerpts from her autobiography, she claims the doctor told her, “well that makes it easier”, after discovering that she was a lesbian.

She writes: “Does not a lesbian have a fallopian tube? Am I not human, and [am] I not somebody who could be a lovely, wonderful mother?”

Last month, she told reporters: “We live in a time and place where we think everything is possible. I don’t know if I would have gone on to have children. But as soon as someone says you can’t have something, you want it more than anything.”

On Wednesday, Sue will co-host this year’s ‘Great British Bake Off’ live finale, with Nadiya Hussain the bookies’ favourite to be crowned 2015’s winner.
