The "Great British Bake Off" judge accused the 48-year-old presenter of "abandoning" the cooking show last year after she, Mary Berry and Mel Giedroyc quit the programme out of "loyalty" to the BBC when the rights to the format were swiped by Channel 4.

But, although the foursome have always claimed there was no bad blood between them, the brunette comedienne was clearly annoyed by the silver fox's recent dig as she decided to cut him from her social networking site - even though he still follows her.

However, her publicist told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It was an accident and she very much still follows him."

The 51-year-old celebrity baker came under fire last year when he announced that he was moving with the cooking show when Channel 4 bagged the rights as part of a mega-money deal, but he can't understand why he was the one to get all the stick when it was his co-judge and presenters who had decided to walk away from the series.

He said: "The girls abandoned it. But I was the one put under siege. I became the most hated man in the country! It's not fun for someone that doesn't like being in the limelight. I didn't set out to be on the telly, I set out to be a good baker. And I didn't want this..."

Paul has admitted it wouldn't take a lot for him to walk away from television.

He added: "If you give me a cheque, you'll never see me again."

Asked how big a cheque it would take, he replied: "Not much, to be honest."

However, despite hitting the headlines when he revealed he was moving to Channel 4 because the tent - where the bakers prepare their delights - is where he "belongs", it worked out well for Paul as he was given a new presenting team in the shape of Prue Leith - his co-judge - and Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding as the hosts.

And, although many were skeptical about the show's new home, it has done well in the ratings, with 10 million people tuning in to see Sophie Faldo win the last series.
