Bake Off reaction was 'misogynistic' says Ruby - Telegraph.co.uk

But Tandoh, who claims she would "rather eat my own foot" than "seduce" her way to victory, said the gender specific criticism should not exist.

She added: "I am tired of defending myself against the boring, inevitable accusations of flirting with Paul Hollywood, of emotionally manipulating the judges and of somehow surfing into the final on a tidal wave of tears."

Tandoh and Kimberely Wilson were runners up in the competition after Frances Quinn, a children's clothes designer, was crowned the winner of Great British Bake Off by judges Hollywood and Mary Berry.

The show has been such as success BBC bosses have decided to move the next series from BBC2 to BBC1 next year after it attracted the highest viewing figures for the channel yet of 7.8 million. On average around seven million people have tuned into the show each week.

Ruby bites back - her top five best quotes:

"We (female) finalists are supposedly too meek, too confident, too thin, too domestic, too smiley, too taciturn … If I see one more person used the hackneyed "dough-eyed" pun I will personally go to their house and force-feed them an entire Charlotte Royale."

"My self-doubt has been simultaneously labelled pathetic, fake, attention-seeking and manipulative."

"Kimberley's self-assurance – a character trait so lauded in men– has been rebranded as smugness, cockiness and even malice."

"I have defended myself against accusations of being a "filthy slag" based solely on me being a woman on a TV screen."

"Despite the saccharin sweetness of the Bake Off, an extraordinary amount of bitterness and bile has spewed forth every week from angry commentators, both on social media and in the press."
