‘Great British Bake Off’ Host Prue Leith Given Full-Time Security Protection To Guard Her From Threats

Prue Leith1 has revealed she s been given 24/7 protection ahead of her debut on The Great British Bake Off2 .

The food critic and restaurateur was announced as Mary Berry3 s replacement on the show earlier this month, following its move to Channel 4.

But the 77-year-old says she was shocked by the level of security provided by Love Productions, who make the show, after it was confirmed she would be joining Paul Hollywood as a judge.

But when Prue returned to her home in the Cotswolds, she discovered she had been granted the security protection anyway.

Prue is set to replace Mary Berry on the ‘Bake Off’ judging panel.

Prue also revealed that Mary Berry has been in touch to reassure her not to worry about any threats.

She revealed that Mary told her: Look, if there s a big story there might be somebody at the gate, but most people like the show.

It s quite nice walking into the supermarket and being asked: Are you the lady off the telly ? That happens to me now and I always enjoy it.

The Great British Bake Off is expected to launch on Channel 4 later this year.

‘Great British Bake Off’: Where Are They Now?

Edd Kimber (winner, 2010)

Fresh from being crowned the winner of the first ever Bake Off , Ed quit his day job as a debt collector for Yorkshire Bank (which he hated) to follow his baking dream with a job in Raymond Blanc s restaurant Le Manoir as a pastry chef (what else?) . He s gone on to carve himself a career as a food writer with articles appearing in BBC Good Food magazine and on his blog theboywhobakes.co.uk . In 2011 he published his first cookbook, ran a pop-up bakery in Fortnum & Mason and is also the resident baker on The Alan Titchmarsh Show . Bake Off changed my life in the most amazing way .

It allowed me to follow my passion and fulfil my dreams in a way I never imagined, he said recently.

London attack a reminder of fears for post-Brexit security cooperation

BRUSSELS Hours before Wednesday’s attack in London, the head of the European Union police agency Europol warned that a large group of radicalised individuals posed a constant threat to Britain and Europe.

“Some of these are likely to succeed in the future,” Rob Wainwright, who is British, wrote in a blog to commemorate the attacks in Brussels that killed 32 people on March 22, 2016.

In the year between those incidents and the attack that killed three people and injured dozens near Britain’s parliament, European security officials say intelligence sharing on potential threats has increased 10-fold.

More work is being done to tighten security by streamlining databases, clamping down on identity fraud and making reporting of suspicious individuals obligatory.

Britain is one of the top three users of Europol data . But as it leaves the EU, there is a risk that it will be shut out of this cooperation, becoming more vulnerable to Islamist radicals who have killed 300 people across Europe over the past two years.

The suspect in the London attack was British-born, and Britain is not part of the EU’s open-border Schengen zone . But London still shares with its EU peers fears – and information – about Islamists, often radicalised online, returning home after going to train or fight with jihadists in the Middle East, North Africa or Afghanistan.

British security officials warned parliament last year of the dangers of leaving Europol and the agreement covering the European Arrest Warrant, which requires all EU governments to arrest a suspect wanted in another EU country.

5,000 EXTRADITIONS

A year ago, when she was interior minister, Theresa May said that Britain’s close intelligence relationship with the United States “does not mean we would be as safe (outside the EU) as if we remain”.

May, now prime minister, said the Warrant had enabled Britain to extradite more than 5,000 people in the previous five years.

Being outside Europol, which was founded in 1998 to help combat organised crime, cybercrime and militant groups across borders, would leave Britain reliant on individual links with each of the other 27 EU governments, former officials say.

Before Europol existed, coordination was done “on the basis of who you knew and who you could ring up”, according to Bill Hughes, ex-director-general of Britain’s now defunct Serious Organised Crime Agency . He told parliament it was a “labyrinthine exercise”.

Besides Europol, Britain is also party to intelligence-sharing protocols of the Schengen agreement, and to a deal to exchange airline passenger data between EU security forces.

EU diplomats have refused to discuss Britain’s future defence and security cooperation until London triggers the formal exit proceedings, but one senior British diplomat said the government was likely to seek a “special relationship”.

“The European Union is not good at involving third parties and we need to be able to talk intimately,” the diplomat said.

May, expected to start two-year EU exit proceedings next Wednesday, has said she wants to retain a close relationship with the EU on security and defence, and the EU has expressed similar sentiments, but tensions are apparent.

She said in January that Britain’s intelligence capabilities were “unique in Europe” and that its military and counter-terrorism resources should help it to secure a better exit deal.

But EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier is dismissive. “Security cannot be weighed off against economic and commercial interests,” he said in a speech in Brussels on Wednesday.

LIMITS OF COOPERATION

Britain does already have additional bilateral security agreements with fellow EU members France and Germany, as well as the long-standing “Five Eyes” intelligence sharing pact with the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

But cooperation agreements between Europol and non-EU countries Russia, Turkey and Ukraine took several years to negotiate, and there are limits on what data can be shared.

Under EU agreements, transferring fingerprints and DNA data can take minutes . With Britain outside the EU, the Global Risk Insights think-tank says it could take months.

Some critics do note that information-sharing within the EU is still far for perfect .

While France and Germany have large, well-staffed intelligence agencies, years of neglect in Belgium’s secret services were exposed by last year’s airport and metro blasts.

And militant Anis Amri, who killed 12 people at a Christmas market in Berlin last December, was on watch lists but still managed to avoid detection by using 14 different aliases in different countries.

However, the recent attacks have pushed the EU to try to plug gaps with a proposal in December to make it obligatory for states to issue alerts on individuals who pose a potential threat, and to float a plan to build a shared database of biometric data, such as fingerprints.

Claude Moraes, a Briton who chairs the European Parliament’s Liberty, Justice and Home Affairs Committee, said the stakes for Britain were high: “We need to have a much tougher discussion about what it is we are going to lose.”

The gaps in their security were exposed when Kim Kardashian3 was victim of a terrifying robbery at gun-point in Paris 4last October. And the 36-year-old reality television star tells her sister Kendall Jenner5 that she can’t get to sleep without four security guards outside her home, in a sneak peek of Sunday’s all-new Keeping Up With The Kardashians6. The wife of Kanye West 7is seen coping with the aftermath, including anxiety from the entire family about their safety, in the clip released on Tuesday.

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

Bodyguards: Kim Kardashian she can’t get to sleep without four security guards outside her home, in a sneak peak of Sunday’s all-new Keeping Up With The Kardashians Kris Jenner, 61, looks concerned by the breach in security, as they assess their protection going forward. ‘It’s my job to take care of everybody,’ she tells the assembled family, as she’s seated wearing a camouflage hoodie. Clearly Kris had been advising her daughters on the exposed parts of their life, as Kourtney is heard on the E ! show saying: ‘Mom is saying I should tint that window…’. Taking care ! Kris Jenner, 61, looks concerned by the breach in security, as they assess their protection going forward

‘As a security measure,’ Kris interjects, in case anyone thought it just a style statement. Kris is then asked, over a family meal which included a make-up free Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian: ‘Do you think we have enough security?’ to which she replied a definite, ‘No’. Kendall, 21, relieved her own terrifying ordeal at the hands of an alleged stalker at her home last year.

Boost ! Kris thinks their security isn’t good enough

Prayers: The family gathered for a meal, and chatted through their next security moves

Too much ? Kourtney is heard on the E ! show saying: ‘Mom is saying I should tint that window…’

No prying eyes: Khloe checks out the window which Kris is concerned about, over a family meal

Concerns: Kim took part in a conversation about increased security over dinner

Describing the incident last August to Scott Disick, the model explains: ‘I’m freaking out . I look in my rear view mirror and he was standing right there. ‘He’s in my window banging on my window screaming at me,’ she told the sympathetic father of Kourtney’s three children.

‘Oh no,’ empathised Scott. Chow down: The family meal also included a make-up free Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian

Supportive: Model Kendall listens as Kim describes her anxiety since the terrifying robbery Kendall told a court last October that she has never been so scared in her life, reported TMZ8 at the time. Shavaughn McKenzie was found not guilty of stalking, but guilty of trespass.

Kim recounted the horrific night she was robbed at gunpoint on last Sunday’s KUWTK, and afterwards took to Twitter to react to the very emotional episode. She wrote: ‘I can say I’ve become so much better because of it….thank you for allowing me to share my story tonight #KUWTK.’

Intruder: Kendall, 21, also relieved her own terrifying ordeal at the hands of an alleged stalker at her home last year

Drama! ‘He’s in my window banging on my window screaming at me,’ she told the sympathetic father of Kourtney’s three children

Describing the incident last August to Scott Disick, the model explained: ‘I’m freaking out . I look in my rear view mirror and he was standing right there’

‘Oh no,’ empathised Scott to Kendall, as he listened to her story

Getting head round it ! Scott looked shocked by her tale The reality star elaborated more as she added: ‘I took a tragic horrific experience and did not let it diminish me, rather grew and evolved and allowed the experience to teach me.’ In the actual episode Kim revealed that she believed she was going to be raped and killed on the night of her Paris robbery . The heist was France’s biggest jewelry theft involving a private citizen in more than two decades. There were 17 people arrested in connection to the armed robbery and ten have been charged so far . The thieves stole an estimated $10million worth of jewels including her 20 carat engagement ring.

The episode showed Kim explaining to her sisters Kourtney, 37, and Khloe, 32, that her mouth was duct taped to stop her from screaming. ‘He grabs my legs, and I wasn’t, you know, I had no clothes on under . He pulled me toward him at the front of the bed and I thought, “Okay, this is the moment they’re going to rape me”,’ Kim recounted in heart-wrenching detail.

‘They’re going to rape me:’ Kim recounted the events that transpired on October 3, the night of her Paris robbery, on Sunday’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians

She continued: ‘I fully mentally prepped myself – and then he didn’t . He duck taped my legs together and had the gun up to me . I knew that was the moment they’re just totally going to shoot me in the head.

‘I just prayed that Kourtney’s going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed…like, I’m not going to make it out of here . I know how these things go.’ Kim recalled that before she was quieted with tape, she was pleading with the hotel concierge – who had been forced to bring the robbers up to the star’s room – to tell them she had babies and a family. She described: ‘I just said, “Are we going to die ? They can’t understand me, but please tell them I have babies, I have a family, let me live!”‘ After pointing the thieves to her $4million ring, they demanded money.

‘I said I don’t have money . They dragged me out to the hallway on top of the stairs . That’s when I saw the gun clear as day.

‘I was looking at the gun, looking at the stairs.. . either they’re going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don’t, if the elevator doesn’t make it in time or the stairs are locked then I’m like f***ed . There’s no way out,’ she recalled. Instead of shooting the mother-of-two, the robbers – dressed as Parisian policemen – threw her in the bathroom and ran off.

Better now: Kim had a message of positivity on Sunday after the robbery scenes were shown

Strong: The reality star shared her inspirational vibes The gang escaped on ‘velibs’ – hire bicycles which can be rented all over Paris. Kim said that when the robbers left, she hid in a bush on the balcony: ‘It was really hard for me when the police showed up because they were dressed in the same uniform, except for the face masks.’

She also revealed her theory for how the horrific proceedings occurred. She said: ‘What I think happened now, after thinking about it so much, is that there was probably a group of guys that were following us the entire trip. ‘I was Snapchatting that I was home and everyone was going out, so I think they knew Pascal Duvier was out with Kourtney and that I was there by myself…They had this window of opportunity and just went for it.’

Family bodyguard Pascal Duvier had been assigned to protecting Kim’s sisters Kendall and Kourtney when the robbery happened and while the Kardashians said they didn’t blame him for what happened, after four years in their employ, Pascal is no longer working for them. In the immediate aftermath of the robbery, both Kim and Kanye had seemed to show their support for Pascal, who was seen protecting the couple in New York City days later. A shift began to occur weeks later, according to some close to the family, with Kanye becoming increasingly concerned about the safety of his wife Kim and their two children, North and Saint. The bodyguard went underground in the wake of the robbery, admitting he tried to escape the constant harassment from international media. His family – including his two young daughters – were also targeted, with rumours circulating that the heist was an inside job. Having spent years by Kim and later Kanye’s side, Duvier has remained loyal and has declined to comment on his firing in the wake of the robbery. Aomar Ait Khedache, a 60-year-old Frenchman who was thought to be the ringleader, told police the gang melted down and sold off most of the stolen jewelry But they kept Kardashian’s diamond engagement ring because it was too difficult to re-sell. In police statements, Khedache said his team had planned to rob Kardashian during a previous visit to Paris, but got cold feet because she was always surrounded by people.

Ironically, Kourtney brought up that just that day they had talked about what they would do in such an attack, with Kim insisting at the time – unaware what would soon happen – that she would tell them: ‘Have everything, take it all, take it all, I don’t care.’ Soon after the traumatizing event, the Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner spoke to Kim about her worries for her mental health. ‘What I’m worried about is you’re in shock, and you don’t want to get to a place where you get post traumatic stress disorder . I think you should talk to somebody.’ Kim calmed her mother by telling her she thinks she’ll be fine, but that her body is physically exhausted. Kim took a three month break from social media following the robbery. She will testify against the thieves but she reportedly will not be cross examined. Later on in the show, Kim’s family reacted to her ordeal. Her husband Kanye – who had to stop a concert halfway through when he got the news that his wife had been robbed – said that if Kim had been hurt, he would have gone to great lengths to avenge her: ‘If anything happened to you, I wouldn’t have stopped until they were dead.’

Jenner said, through tears: ‘It’s been the most devastating thing to have one of your children fear for their life, thinking at any moment they’re going to die when they have two children. ‘For the rest of us, the thought of losing Kim is emotionally scarring and hard to overcome.’ Kim’s reunion with her children and husband after what she went through ends the tense episode on a heartwarming note.

The robbery caused Kim’s radio silence on social media for three months . After the show she took to Twitter to thank her fans for their support.
