GBBO: What's happened to Prue Leith's voice? Fans worry about Bake Off judge

Prue Leith is one of the main Bake Off judges, alongside Paul Hollywood. But fans think something has happened to Prue’s voice

She has tasted and tried baker’s cakes, biscuits and pastries since joining The Great British Bake Off in 2017, replacing Mary Berry.

The renowned chef also regularly sets contestants with a technical challenge during every episode.

But when doing so, fans have noticed that her voice has changed. So has anything happened to Prue’s voice? If so, what’s caused the change?

Fans react to Prue’s voice

During the current 4th series, viewers have begun noticing that Prue’s voice sounds like she is “always losing her voice”.

One fan wrote: “What’s happened to Prue Leith’s voice? #GBBO.”

 

While another viewer said: “Does Prue Leith of GBBS have a medical issue that affects her voice?

“She so often sounds as if she has trouble speaking–her voice is breathless, gravelly, very weak.”

When did viewers notice Prue’s voice?

The majority of fans say they’ve been wondering what has happened to her voice for the last 2 weeks.

However Prue has not publicly spoken out about any changes in her voice.

One viewer said: “I hope she has had it checked.”

Has anything happened to Prue’s voice?

  • At the time of writing, there have been no confirmations that anything has happened to Prue’s voice

However, in Bake Off’s 2019 series it was reported by the Express that Prue had been dealing with a fall she had two years prior.

She said it has taken a long time to recover and that her main worry is the fall happening again.

Otherwise, the change in her voice could be related to Prue’s age, as she turned 80 years old in February.

As reported by UK Healthcare, as you grow older, you may not be able to talk all day without your voice getting tired or hoarse.
