Catherine Tyldesley cakegate baker speaks out as star says she craved exposure

The baker who sparked cakegate with Catherine Tyldesley has now broken her silence, after the ex-Corrie actress accused her of “craving exposure” by making the row public via Facebook.

The founder of Three Little Birds Bakery, Rebecca Severs, from Keighley, took to her Instagram to speak out after Catherine ranted about the situation on her own social media page.

Posting her brother-in-law’s AI drawing “of the infamous cake request”, which was pink and covered in flamingos and flowers, Rebecca wrote: “I wish I had time to reply to all your amazing messages one by one. But I totally don’t!

“Please know that knowing how much solidarity is out there for small business is incredible and every message of support means a lot.”

The post marks the baker’s first comment since Catherine, who played Eva Price in Coronation Street, hit out at her via an Instagram video yesterday.

The soap star fired back after Rebecca shared a screenshot of an email thread between her bakery and a PR company, representing an unidentified “well-known” celebrity, requesting a cake for a 40th birthday party in September.

The baker added in a scathing remark on Facebook at the time: “This poor celebrity apparently can’t afford to pay people for their products and services.

“Spare a thought! What happened to women supporting women.”

The PR company promised the small bakery would be rewarded “in the form of promotion on their [the celeb’s] socials with over 700k followers, as well as promoted in OK Magazine”.

In her response to the furore, Strictly star Catherine gave a thumbs up to the camera before branding the row “utterly bizarre”.

She also swiped: “I don’t really know what to say. I mean I hope the cake lady got the exposure she was craving.”

Catherine began the video by saying: “Cake gate! WHAT!

“So I had no idea those emails were being sent.

“I’m not working with the lovely OK! Magazine on anything that I’m aware of and NVRLND are an amazing company.

“They’ve supplied me with performers in the past. They’re insane and they’ve been completely misrepresented in this matter.”
