CELEBRITY baker Paul Hollywood stops off at the Echo Arena in Liverpool later this year as part of his first live tour.

The Wallasey-born star, who rose to fame as the stern judge on hit show The Great British Bake Off, promises fun stories, demonstrations and audience participation during his two Get Your Bake On shows at the riverside venue on November 16.

As well as demonstrating recipes, he will also reveal some secrets of being a TV chef and take the audience on a journey through his life in baking.

The show culminates with four lucky randomly chosen audience members coming on stage to bake with Paul.

Audience members will get a real insight into Paul's life and career which has seen him become a household name.

Among the tales are how his father persuaded him to ditch his path as a trained sculptor and join the family baking business.

It also covers his time as head baker at some of the world’s most exclusive hotels and anecdotes from his time filming The Great British Bake Off.

Audience members will also been given the opportunity to quiz Paul in an open question and answer session.

Paul said: "When I was approached to do a tour, I jumped at the chance, I can’t wait to share my passion for baking with a live audience."
