A MATRONLY Bake Off fan is questioning everything she knew about herself after realising she is attracted to a man who dresses like a lady.
Margaret Gerving, a retired headmistress from Guildford, originally found Fielding scruffy but soon found herself so smitten she could not wait to see him again.
She said: “I’d never watched Channel 4 after 5pm before Bake-Off changed channels, because I thought it was dangerous. How right I was.
“That beguiling creature, like a baby giraffe wearing the stubbled chin of a man but the lustrous lashes and shapely limbs of a girl, has touched me in ways I did not know I could be touched.
“I want to scrub him clean and set him right, I want to take him dress-shopping, I want him to scandalise my book group by kissing me after a thoroughgoing discussion of Middlemarch, I want him to do me proper over my tombola stall.
“I yearn to tear him away from the predatory claws of Prue Leith and to keep him caged like a goth canary.
“To think I used to like Paul Hollywood. He seems so vanilla now.”
