PA:Press Association Sandi Toksvig admitted she and Noel Fielding give contestants extra time
The host, who joined when the show transferred from the BBC to Channel 4, made the shocking confession this week as the show's new season gets into full swing.
Sandi, 59, told The Mirror: "There have been odd times where we have slowed down the final 10-second countdown as we can see they’ve got one quick thing left to do.”
But a spokesman for Channel 4 insisted Sandi and Noel do not give anyone an unfair advantage.
They said: “Any slowing of the countdown is a matter of mere seconds and gives all the bakers the same amount of time.”
It comes after viewers were treated to the sauciest show yet as last night's episode was packed with hilarious innuendos.
Bread Week certainly gave both the contestants and judges the chance to work on their puns, as well as their buns.
