Jake Gyllenhaal has admitted to being a huge Great British Bake Off fan and is "mesmerised" by judge Prue Leith.

The actor explained how he began watching the programme after developing a love for baking during the pandemic.

Speaking to PA news agency, he said: "I have always cooked and I’ve always loved to cook.

"And there are many things that I have hoped and wished that I would be able to do, that I had always deemed in my mind to be impossible.

"And then I made them and it’s opened my entire world. Things like, literally no joke, a black and white cookie.

'I’ve searched the world for the perfect black and white cookie and never found it, and so now I get to try and make the perfect one for myself."

Could we be seeing him cooking on the small screen anytime soon?

He responded: "In my mind, there’s literally nothing that can beat The Great British Baking Show [the US title for GBBO]. So no, the answer to that is no.

"Though Prue is my favourite. I’m mesmerised by her spectacles. Her coats or spectacles change and it’s almost as if they change every shot.

"Or do they change every show? I can’t figure it out. And I just adore her. Prue’s fantastic. I do really love Mr [Paul Hollywood], but you know, she’s amazing."
