The contestants admit they have foul mouths

Great British Bake Off finalists John Whaite and James Morton have revealed that they had a sneaky plan to stop their culinary mishaps getting aired on the BBC2 show.

The pair – who’ll fight it out for the top prize with fellow contestant Brendan Lynch tonight – swore at each other because rude words can’t be shown before the watershed.

‘A good technique that James and I developed was to swear like troopers so that in edit our errors couldn’t be part of the show,’ says John, 23.

John and James, 21, have both admitted to putting on a couple of stone while filming the Great British Bake Off.

James says that’s just one of the things about taking part in the programme that he and his family won’t miss.

‘When practising for the first week, my girlfriend eventually took me aside and said, sternly: “No more cake,”‘ James tells the Daily Mirror.

‘I never tire of eating bread but I’m not a cake fan, to be honest.’
