Hollywood said: “This is a really exciting announcement for me.

“It is some years since I’ve been on tour so I can’t wait to get back on the road and get baking live on stage once again.

“We’ll have some fun and you’ll learn some tips along the way so it’s the perfect recipe for a great night out.”

He will also perform in Newcastle, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Newport, London, Brighton, Bath, Liverpool, Ipswich, Southend, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stockton-on-Tees, Nottingham and Manchester.

Ben Hatton, director of theatre at tour promoters Cuffe & Taylor, said: “Taking Paul Hollywood on tour is something we have wanted to do for some time.

“Paul is a British baking legend and I have no doubt audiences will flock to see him working his magic on stage while imparting some of his famed humour.”

Tickets for Paul Hollywood Live go on sale at 10am on Friday.
