Steph’s Packed Lunch star breaks silence saying they’ll have to ‘sell OnlyFans nudes for cash’ after show axe | The Sun
A STEPH's Packed Lunch star has broken his silence after its axe, revealing they'll have to 'sell their OnlyFans nudes'.
The popular Channel 4 daytime show is being culled from the schedule after three years on air.
Yesterday The Sun exclusively revealed exes made the decision as they try to compete with streaming giants like Netflix and Disney+.
And now John Whaite has paid tribute to Steph McGovern and the show in an emotional Instagram post.
John, 34, won The Great British Bake Off in 2012 and has been a regular fixture in the Packed Lunch kitchen.
He told his followers: "Breaking my little insta-pause to post about this. I’m sure you’ve read the deeply sad news that Steph’s Packed Lunch will not be returning after December.

Here's who is on Steph's Packed Lunch today
"I want to shout, as loud as possible, about how brilliant the team have been. The eclectic mix of folk from a hodgepodge of backgrounds and generations worked tirelessly to try to keep the integrity of a 100-year-old industry alive, and bring lunchtime entertainment and company to many a household.
"What they created was a show that was as diverse as it was welcoming, and I hope each and every one of them continue to thrive wherever the wind next takes them, because they deserve nothing but success.
"The food team – Courtney, Sarah and the talented home economists – have been a lifeline to me on so many occasions, and it’s been an honour to work with them (and the rest of the production and editorial teams) for the past 3 years.
"And finally I hope that Steph, Vivek, Matt and all the people at the top feel nothing but immense pride for creating a ground-breaking, inclusive show.
