Celebrity Bake Off fans flabbergasted as host Noel Fielding shares his real age

There were new a batch of celebrity hopefuls on tonight's instalment of Channel 4's The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer.

The Masked Singer host Joel Dommett, actress Caroline Quentin, Queer Eye's Tan France and tennis player Johanna Konta were flexing their baking muscles.

And viewers weren't left disappointed, as all of the traditional Bake Off innuendos were dropped, with Caroline telling Joel: "I'm going to get them out now," (in reference to her eclairs).

But there was one big shocker for fans at home, when host Noel Fielding revealed his age.

Sitting on top of one of the fridges in typical quirky Noel style, the comedian divulged he's 46.

He told co-host Sandi Toksvig: "Look at me. I'm 46. Not a job for a grown man is it?

"I thought at this stage I'd be settling down, maybe writing a few novels."

Viewers were shocked by Noel's age revelation, and flocked to Twitter to share their surprise.

One social networker said: "I'm in shock – Noel is 46! What is his secret?!"

While another continued: "Noel Fielding is 46! I'm sorry, what?!"

A third added: "Noel Fielding is 46?!"

While a fourth remarked: "Did Noel just say he's 46?!?! Forty f*****g six. WHAT #GBBO"

Noel is gearing up to have a new co-host, with it recently being announced that Little Britain's Matt Lucas will be replacing Sandi Toksvig.

Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will also be staying on.

The Great Celebrity Bake Off for SU2C airs Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4
