Although the BBC has earned a reputation for leaning towards Remain, tonight's Question Time shed light on the various political allegiances at the BBC. Prue Leith – the Great British Bake Off judge and Spectator writer – told the audience that she had backed Brexit in the EU referendum:

‘There was a life before we were in the EU. I ended up voting for Brexit but I dithered and dithered for ages because there were really good arguments on both sides, and really intelligent people on both sides, it’s such as pity we have everyone fighting.’

With GBBO fans taking to Twitter in dismay at their heroine's revelation, Mr S hopes that viewers will take Leith's advice on board going forward.
