The Great British Bake Off star Sue Perkins has issued a warning after her experience taking a psychedelic drug.

The TV presenter, 54, hosted the beloved Channel 4 programme with comedy partner Mel Geidroyc between 2010 and 2016, before fronting various other programmes including travel shows.

Her latest of these includes Sue Perkins: Lost In Alaska, a three-part series on Channel 5, which sparked a bit of confusion during a discussion behind-the-scenes of This Morning.

Sue was a guest on the ITV programme to talk about her latest game show, Double The Money, when the chat turned to her travel series’.

It was revealed that earlier in the morning, she’d been speaking to This Morning host Cat Deeley and journalist Tom Swarbrick, where the word ‘Alaska’ was mixed up with the similar-sounding name of psychedelic Ayahuasca.

The South American drug has hallucinogenic properties, leaving Sue warning: ‘Don’t do it kids.’

Cat had been explaining: ‘We were having a really interesting chat, where Tom was talking and he thought, where was he talking about?’

Sue clarified: ‘He was talking about Ayahuasca, the hallucinogenic drug that is often taken in South America, and you were talking about Alaska, the final frontier.

‘I mean, it was an incredible… a very different concept. I was trying to entertain both of these concepts it was amazing!’

‘Couple of extra consonants and a different continent,’ Ben Shephard chimed in with.

Sue added: ‘I’ve done both! Don’t do it kids!’

Talking about her adventures in Alaska, Sue went on to reveal a moment that turned rather violent.

‘I absolutely loved Alaska, it’s one of the last places on Earth where you can go somewhere and you’re the first boots on the ground, I’ve been to places where no human being has been,’ she said.

‘I feel conflicted because on one hand it’s great and on the other hand they could have had anybody, but most of the places I go are much busier than that.’

Probed on her ‘run-in with the wildlife’ in Alaska, Sue went on: ‘It was quite a full-on experience.’

‘I was going to feed the baby moose, and then baby moose was much bigger than I expected!’ she added.

‘It was quite violent, my shoulder was almost dislocated during that feed!’ she said, recalling how she was ‘blasted against the fence and panicked’.

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV1.
