Jason Gardiner takes on Paul Hollywood in GBBO

Thursday January 9, 2014

Jason Gardiner is known for his acerbic tongue on Dancing On Ice, but this time he's on the receiving end of the criticism.

The judge is taking part in The Great British Bake Off for Sport Relief – and Paul Hollywood has some choice words about his culinary skills.

"It's as dry as a bone, a bit like sawdust and it's got the texture of hardboard. But besides that, it's alright!" Paul says after being served Jason's ginger biscuits.

He also describes Jason's banoffee pie as a "disaster", and his chocolate showstopper cake – complete with an iced scene from Swan Lake – as undercooked.

The Great Sport Relief Bake Off, judged by Paul and Mary Berry, will see 16 celebrities battling for the ultimate baking prize.

Michael Ball, Samantha Bond, Emma Freud, Jason Gardiner, Jane Horrocks, Rochelle Humes, Jamelia, Doon Mackichan, Alistair McGowan, Victoria Pendleton, Greg Rutherford, Helen Skelton, Johnny Vaughan, Michael Vaughan, Bonny Wright and Kirsty Young are all taking part.
