Top TV baker Paul Hollywood has shown he is as comfortable on the grid as in the kitchen after getting behind the wheel at a Norfolk race track.

The Great British Bake Off star was a celebrity attraction at Snetterton Race Track on Saturday as he took part in the opening round of the Alfa Romeo Championship.

The 50-year-old was taking part as he gears up to compete in the second half of this year's British GT Championship.

With regular championship campaigners Bianco providing the car, Hollywood was driving in the Twin Spark Cup class.

And he turned in a solid performance to finish 12th out of a field of 18.
