Out UK comedian – who presents the Bake Off on the BBC – disclosed that she has been living a brain tumour for the past eight years.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping, she said:

I was at a point where I was spending so much of my life doing TV that I only found out about my real life through a television procedure.

I’m lucky that it’s benign so it’s not in itself a worrying thing. Sometimes it’s big and makes me mad, and sometimes it’s small and is in the background.

Sometimes it screws up my hormones. I have various tests now to make sure the side effects aren’t too onerous.”

She also revealed that the tumour has stopped her from having children, because of its impact on her reproductive hormones.

We live in a time and place where we think everything is possible… I don’t know if I would have gone on to have children. But as soon as someone says you can’t have something, you want it more than anything.”

Tweeting since the interview went live, Perkins said:

The Bake Off star and fellow presenter Anna Richardson earlier this year revealed that they are in a relationship together.
