The Great British Bake Off host Sue Perkins has revealed that her eyebrows became an issue in the earlier stages of her TV career.

In an interview in the March edition of Reader's Digest magazine, she said: "I can remember a two-hour meeting about what should be done with my unibrow."

Perkins continued: "Times have moved on and for every stunning Tess Daly on the screen, there's now room for a speccy weirdo like me.

"I'm also more confident, so these days if someone brought up [my appearance] I'd be likely to say, 'Isn't there something a bit more interesting we could be talking about?'.

"There's not one ounce of me that cares about the way I look."
