I want to comfort some people who might think, Oh, I don't want to go to Channel 4 because I don't want to have the ads. You don't have to watch it in real time, do you?feedback

Prue Leith quotes

Aug 10 2017 - Women

Because Leith's was a success, I started to be invited on to other people's boards. I was so flattered I almost always said yes, even though I knew that the chief reason for the invitation was probably that the Chairman needed a woman on his board for appearance's sake.feedback

I really thought twice about accepting Bake Off. I've spent my life campaigning about children learning to cook and healthy meals in schools, but I reasoned that, actually, baking is the best way to get people into general cooking. And that's what we need the nation to do: to get interested in the kitchen.feedback

On the day that they announced who the line-up was, they wanted to send a close protection officer. What did they think is going to happen? I'm not likely to be trolled. This is a nice family show. They sent somebody down to the country to look after me. And they sent someone to look after my agent. I mean, who do they think I am? Do they think I'm Prince Philip or something?feedback

When I got home that night at 11 at night, there's a chap in a van, a security guard.feedback

Mar 17 2017 - Cambodia

Adopting Li-Da was just as wonderful, satisfying and fascinating as having [son] Daniel the way nature intended. The two of them are chalk and cheese, but are devoted to each other. Li-Da was, if anything, too good a child, conscious of her luck and suffering from classic survivor guilt, which she later channelled into making films about Cambodia and working for charities to help the country.feedback

Mar 17 2017 - Cambodia

At the age of 14, I had this bolt-upright-in-bed situation. I was trying to imagine what my parents looked like, and I realised I couldn't. I'd never met a Cambodian. The only images I had were from documentaries. But you never see Cambodians in those. You just see skulls.feedback

Mar 17 2017 - Cambodia

I realised I was totally English. The Cambodian culture was so foreign to me. I grew up with South African expat parents in England and lived in a manor house and had a very charmed lifestyle. Having had no influences from Cambodia before, it was a huge shock in every single way possible. I didn't really feel connected.feedback

Mar 16 2017

I am just so thrilled to be joining Paul, Sandi and Noel on the biggest show on TV and I cannot wait to see what the real stars of the show – the bakers – are going to create for us. It is such an honour to be part of The Great British Bake Off team.feedback

Mar 15 2017

It's surprising how you can behave like a 16-year-old in your 60s or a 17-year-old in your 70s. You know, it's exactly the same. You fall in love with somebody, you start worrying about why the phone is not ringing and thinking 'Can I ring him?'. Is romance dead for me? I got married five months ago. He's a great guy too. He's lovely and he's my toyboy. I'm 77 and he's 70, so he's a mere boy. It's enlivening.feedback

Mar 15 2017

I think it's silly to ignore it. An awful lot of older women do have love affairs or wish they were having love affairs.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I don't like the word romantic, because it's got such a soppy connotation, which it doesn't need to have. I think that love stories are the most successful - the most successful plays, operas, novels are all about love. Nobody says Shakespeare is a romantic novelist or that Jane Austen is a romantic novellist. And they never say men are romantic novellists. Sebastian Faulks, Ian McEwan - they write wonderful love stories, or stories about relationships and love, and you never find Ian McEwan on the romantic shelf.feedback

Mar 13 2017

It won't happen because guys don't need to. They get put on the shelves upstairs, the women get put on the shelves downstairs, called romance.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I don't like being confined to the romantic shelf, but I thoroughly approve of what romantic novelists do. We're not all what used to be called Mills and Boon. The Romantic Novelists' Association (RNA) does try to show that this is literature, like anything else. We're just women who write about relationships.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I think I'm close but I know there are two people in the running. One other person [...] I've had two auditions with them and lots of meetings. I can wish. I can dream [...] Of course I'd love to do it. Who wouldn't want to do it? I've known Mary for years and she loved it.feedback
