GREAT British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood is set to embark on a live tour.

Paul Hollywood Live will see the baker appear before an audience in Brighton in a fully equipped kitchen in Brighton next year.

The 55-year-old said he will share “tricks of the trade and maybe even reveal some sugar-coated secrets along the way”.

He will perform 18 live tour dates across the UK-wide tour, which will begin at the New Theatre Oxford on October 20, 2022.

He said: “This is a really exciting announcement for me.

“It is some years since I’ve been on tour so I can’t wait to get back on the road and get baking live on stage once again.

“We’ll have some fun and you’ll learn some tips along the way so it’s the perfect recipe for a great night out.”

The date of the Brighton show is not yet known.

He will also perform in Newcastle, Harrogate, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Newport, Sheffield, London, Bath, Liverpool, Ipswich, Southend, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stockton-on-Tees, Nottingham and Manchester.

Ben Hatton, director of theatre at tour promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “Taking Paul Hollywood on tour is something we have wanted to do for some time.

“Paul is a British baking legend and I have no doubt audiences will flock to see him working his magic on stage while imparting some of his famed humour.”

Tickets for Paul Hollywood Live go on sale at 10am on Friday.
