AceShowbiz - Russell Brand shocked judges on U.K. TV show "The Great Celebrity Bake Off" for Stand Up to Cancer by paying tribute to his wife by making a biscuit shaped like a vagina.
The 43-year-old comic is a contestant on this year's charity edition of the hit British baking contest, and competes alongside "Shrek" actor John Lithgow in Tuesday's (March 05) opening episode.
According to British newspaper The Sun, the group of celebs were asked to recreate their "finest performance" in edible form by judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, and the famed Lothario told his fellow contestants he planned to make "a vagina".
However, the star, who has now settled down with lifestyle blogger Laura Gallacher, with whom he has two daughters, said his creation was a tribute to the miracle of childbirth rather than his seduction skills.
"The female plays an integral role in the process of childbirth," he explained. "That's why it was a good performance because of my acceptance in a secondary role."
The "Bake Off" judges were still shocked by Russell's choice of biscuit, with 79-year-old restaurateur Prue saying, "You have got this great big vagina! It all sounds extraordinary."
Veteran baker Paul added: "I have never heard of a biscuit quite like it."
Russell's earlier creations were less controversial with the contestants required to make brownies and an orange and black striped Swiss roll. And he chose to make footballer brownies and named one after "Bake Off" host Sandi Toksvig.
He joked to Paul: "Take a bite out of Sandi, Paul. You've been dying to do it since the big move."
