Russell Brand has talked Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood into giving him a “virtual handshake” for his cakes.
The comedian was recently among the contestants on the celebrity Stand Up To Cancer episodes of the Channel 4 show and won star baker after creating a birthing scene out of biscuits.
But he did not stop there, and on Wednesday tweeted Hollywood with some pictures of his latest bakes in a bid to secure one of the judge’s coveted handshakes, which are reserved for only the very best creations.
“Hollywood! I’ve been non stop mate – have a look at some of these beauties!!!” said Brand.
“You should be shaking my hand till our wrists snap!!”
The judge replied: “I’m impressed R, virtual handshake.”
A thrilled Brand replied: “Whilst still a baking novice I have received the top accolade available.
“I am the M’bappe of baking. Alexander The Cake.”
