Twilight star Robert Pattinson has said he is a huge fan of BBC Two’s The Great British Bake Off.

Speaking to Yahoo he said "I really love The Great British Bake Off, I've been watching it on iPlayer. The BBC still make great TV and this is one of their best in years.

"I think it has probably inspired me enough that I am going to take up baking, which makes me even less rock and roll than I am now."

Speaking about his life in Los Angeles Pattinson said "Everybody wants to believe that LA living means partying every night, that isn't my reality.

"Fans probably don't want to imagine their idols are at home doing unbelievably mundane things, but for most of the time that is the case.

"People are aware I am not a big fan of the limelight, I'd much rather be at home."
