New Great British Bake Off host Matt Lucas reportedly made himself sick by overindulging in the contestants' bakes.
The comedian - famous for characters including cake-loving Marjorie Dawes - has replaced Sandi Toksvig as co-host to Noel Fielding for the new series of the popular Channel 4 show, which is currently being filmed at a closed set in the Essex countryside.
According to The Sun, the 46-year-old wound up giving himself a baptism of fire by sampling all 12 of the contestants' creations as filming got underway.
"Matt was naturally very excited about his new role and really threw himself into the Bake Off experience," a source told the newspaper.
"When he saw all the treats on offer he took the opportunity to do what he couldn't as a viewer - taste them.
"He certainly felt the effects of overindulging. But it was worth him learning this valuable lesson early."
The new series of Bake Off is expected to air on Channel 4 from September.
