Gay comedian Sandi Toksvig has hit out at the British media.
In an interview with The Guardian, the former Great British Bake Off presenter, who revealed she was gay in 1994, said: “I came out, and the tabloid press thought that I was Cruella de Vil.”
She continued: “They’ve stopped putting ‘lesbian Sandi Toksvig’ whenever they mention me. I don’t know whether it’s because it’s a given, or they’ve just given up. I’m still a lesbian.”
Toksvig, who entered a civil partnership with her partner Debbie in 2007, the couple renewing their vows in 2014 when same sex-marriage became legal in the UK, added: “For a long time, Deb and I didn’t live in a house - we lived in a ‘love nest’. What do they think is going on here? We’re basically going: ‘Do you think these tomatoes have gone off?'”
