You may be surprised at this… but here at heat we absolutely love a bit of Bake Off!

So now that the line-up has been released, we're getting ever so slightly over-excited. Don't you think that Andrew looks like an absolute cutie?

heat's Boyd Hilton had a cuppa and a chat with the show's best dynamic duo.No, not Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood – Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, OBVS.

We found out some VERY interesting and rather shocking facts… Did you know that Mel once snogged the face off none other than the dishy Dermot O'Leary?

Sue was present (of course), and appaz remembers more about it the 40 MINUTE SMOOCH SESSION than Mel herself.

"You said it was 40 minutes because I came back 40 minutes later... isn’t that right?" Mel questioned.

"I was bloody there video-ing it!", Sue told us. "You told me you had a very interesting conversation with him – I didn’t know about the snogging until later. I think it was about five minutes..."

"Oh was it only five minutes? I’ve embroidered the story," Mel 'fessed.

At least she's honest about it.

"I think it was five minutes of snogging and 35 minutes of chat. I mean who snogs someone for 40 minutes? Unless it’s some kind of endurance challenge."

We'd challenge anyone to complete a 40-minute snogathon and live to tell to the tale.

But that's not the only dirt the pair had to dish. There seems to be something weird going on between Sue and Paul… We know, it doesn't make sense, does it?

Sue had already met Paul before the show started, and Mel remembers that she "loved his hands", and was "going on" about them, with Sue saying, "He had these doughy fingers."

And it doesn't stop there.

Sue dropped another bombshell saying: "Weirdly, he’s always punching me. I think he’s sort of in love with me. And maybe I’m in love with him."
