Great British Bake Off's Candice Brown has hit back at nasty trolls who have been ridiculing her pout by declaring: "It's just my face!"

Candice, a 31-year-old PE teacher from Bedford, is currently among this year's GBBO hopefuls battling it out each week in the tent, but she has sadly fallen foul of Twitter trolls.

However, rather than get down about it, Candice has reacted in exactly the right way - by making light of their mean comments.

Following Wednesday night's Batter Week episode (14 September), Candice tweeted a picture of the cartoon character Daffy Duck. She added: "Night all!!! Loveliness appreciated as always!! Time to rest the duck face #daffy #loveliness #itsjustmyface."

She also reacted to one Twitter user, who compared her to Greta from the movie Gremlins, by RETWEETING their post. The message read: "I figured it out! Candice reminds me of Greta from Gremlins #GBBO #Candice."

Candice, meanwhile, has posted of herself and her partner, which was taken at a wedding.

She captioned it: "Wedding face!!! #duckface #troutpout #itsjustmyface #haaaaa."

Aww, you go girl!

GBBO continues at 8pm, BBC One, on Wednesday 21 September.
