The 77-year-old celebrity chef has joined Paul Hollywood to critique the show's contestants baking ability in the new series of the competitive programme, which airs on Channel 4, but the 52-year-old television personality has described the newcomer as a hard task master.

Speaking on ITV's 'Good Morning Britain' on Wednesday (04.10.17), Piers said: "I've got to say, it feels like it hasn't missed a beat.

"And you are brutal.

"I mean I thought I was a tough judge on these things, but you! Wow! You get your drizzle wrong!"

Although Prue has made her mark as a harsh judge on the show, she does enjoy being a part of the programme and working alongside hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.

When asked if she enjoys her new venture, the former 'Great British Menu' judge said: "I love it, it's lovely."

However, Prue has been praised by fellow culinary mastermind James Martin who thinks she has done an "amazing job".

Speaking previously, he said: "Prue did an amazing job. A good format will stand the test of time. It's a TV show, it can move from channel to channel. People will find it. If they don't like it, they'll find something else."
