Former Great British Bake Off star Sue Perkins and Anna Richardson are said to have split, according to reports.

The 51 year old former Bake Off star is said to have called time on her seven year-long romance with Naked Attraction host Anna, 50.

A close friend of the couple have said: "It’s really sad.

"Both Anna and Sue are devastated.

"We’re all hoping they can patch things up and sort out their differences but for now it appears to be all over," they added to The Sun.

The couple have been dating in 2014 after meeting at a Halloween party in 2013.

Sue and Anna are said to have kept their romance a secret for several months before later confirming the news later in 2014.

The couple haven't mentioned marriage during their romance, but last year Anna discussed hopes to have kids with Sue someday.

She revealed: "For some time I've toyed with the idea of fostering or adopting a child.

"I can only speak for myself, not Sue, but I really want to do the training [to foster] and welcome a child into my life."

Anna, who shared a house in London with Sue, continued: "I feel keenly that I'm getting older, that time is running out.

"With the Covid-19 pandemic on top of this, it's focused my mind on the things I still want to do."

"I didn't have children and there's something seismic about your fertility coming to an end with the menopause, which I'm now going through.

"You suddenly think: 'But I still have this desire to look after someone, to make a difference to a child who perhaps didn't have the same opportunities as me.' So I'm keen to explore that."

Before meeting Sue, Anna had divorced from her film director husband Charles Martin.

She previously said of the night she met the Bake Off host: "That night was one of the most extraordinary, memorable evenings where literally the planets aligned.

"Something was in the air that night, and that was the night we got together.

"There was an absolute understanding between us, and we’ve been together ever since. And it’s been profound for me."
