Prue Leith's husband loves her "leftover" meals.

The "Great British Bake Off" judge rediscovered her love for cooking after meeting retired clothes designer John Playfair - who she married in 2016 - and she has opened up about her man's favourite dish.

Appearing on ITV's "Loose Women" on Tuesday (20.11.18): "The thing he likes best is a plate - it is just leftovers.

"I open the fridge on a Sunday night, I look at all that stuff that's in. There's a little bit of mayonnaise, whatever's in there.

"And I put it on biscuits, or in an egg cup, make it look nice - put it on a lettuce leaf, little bites of different things."

Prue, 78, met her man at a friend's house, and she admitted getting to cook meals for someone else has made her enjoy food more.

She added: "We did meet each other at somebody else's house. He is amazing - people call him my toy boy because he's seven years younger than me.

"He is great, and one of the reasons I'm back to the cooking business is because I have someone to cook for every night."

After 25 years working on other projects including novels, Prue has also been inspired to write a new cookery book which is titled "My All-Time Favourite Recipes".

Explaining the reason behind the new tome, she said: "In a sense, it was "Bake Off" because I kept finding I was pinching the bakers" recipes and I was doing what cookery writers always do, which is begin to stack up bits of paper.

"I had sworn for 25 years I wouldn't write another recipe book because I was writing novels. But then when I realised I had this stack of stuff - I was even nicking recipes from Paul Hollywood - I better write a book."
