As the broadcaster is celebrating its 40th anniversary, bosses invited five of the channels ‘icons’ to enter the tent.

The celebrities were tasked with baking a batch of eight individual cakes, shaped and decorated like festive baubles.

Their baubles had to include a filling or an icing and the decorations were to have a personal meaning to each star.

When it came to Tony, he revealed how he’s never baked before – not even a fairy cake.

He told judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith how his creation would be inspired by his character Baldrick from Blackadder.

“The thing that he loved more than anything else was and would’ve just adored for Christmas was turnips,” he said.

The actor then said he would make turnip Christmas baubles by carving vanilla sponge.

He filled them with sherry buttercream and wrapped them in fondant.

But the 76-year-old was reduced to tears when his creations were tasted by the judges.

Paul, 56 and Prue, 82 complimented Tony’s abilities – with the actor left stunned as Paul offered him one of his famous handshakes.

After the moment, Tony said: “It took me completely by surprise.

All I was hoping was that I wouldn’t make myself look like a complete twit.”

He added: “I’d happily swap my Knighthood for that handshake.”

Taking to social media, viewers were also left emotional watching Tony.

One said: “Aww poor Tony what a lovely bloke he is.”

Another said: “Tony must be protected at all costs.”

“I think I now love Tony, said a third viewer.

While a fourth posted: “Tony is a national treasure and I won’t hear otherwise.”
