Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood has said that his affair with a US TV presenter was the 'biggest mistake' of his life.

The TV host admitted to having an affair with the co-judge of The American Baking Competition.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon: "It was the biggest mistake of my life - because actually I still love my wife... we are talking, working together but it's going to take time."

"I was shocked about the whole thing kicking off the way it did... but I deserved it and I've taken it. It was my punishment."
