I was a Great British Bake Off finalist but got DEATH threats after I made it through to the last episode | The Sun

A GREAT British Bake Off contestant has spoken out about how she received death threats after she made it through to the final round.

Laura Adlington, 32, was a finalist in the beloved baking competition in 2020.

However, the blonde star later shared that she felt suicidal after being mocked by fat-shaming trolls, and has now spoken about the death threats she received for being a runner up.

The Go Love Yourself podcast host was interviewing Katie Price when she revealed how bad the harassment got after she participated in GBBO.

When Katie asked if she had experienced online bullying, she said: "Not as much now. I don't know if you know, I was on Bake Off, but I got trolled to sh** after that.

"Like horrific. Death threats, because I got through over someone else. Press outside my house. It was a bit rough."

Laura has also previously spoken about the personal insults trolls threw her way when she was on the reality show, including mocking her for her weight and fertility problems.

She also shared that she never received counselling that was promised to her by Channel 4.

"When it was all really kicking off was on the week of the final. People were just being awful and it was really personal stuff as well," she said on Should I Delete That? podcast with Em Clarkson and Alex Light.

"It was personal stuff like infertility and other personal things. People were saying things like 'It was no wonder you can't have a baby'
