Catherine Tyldesley is facing backlash after she hit out at a bakery that refused to make 100 free cakes for her birthday in return for ‘exposure’.

The bakery in Bradford recently received praise after they rejected an offer to provide a freebie for a ‘well-known celebrity’.

The Three Little Birds, in Keighley, shared a Facebook post on 27 July, which included screenshots of a conversation with the unnamed celeb’s PR company.

It wanted the bakery to make not only 100 cupcakes but one 40th birthday cake with a theme of ‘camp as t**s’ plus a ‘smaller cake’ to surprise the star’s husband with.

Sarcastically captioning the post, the bakery wrote: “This poor celebrity can’t afford to pay people for their products and services. Spare a thought!

“What happened to women supporting women…”

In return for making this big batch of baked goodies, the PR company said the ‘opportunity’ would get the bakery ‘payment in the form of promotion on their socials’ as well as in OK Magazine.

Well, the Daily Mail has since revealed that the party planners were organising the bday bash for ex-Coronation Street star Catherine, who played Eva Price on the soap.

In the clip posted to her story, the actor said: “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."

She went on to call the situation ‘utterly bizarre’ and added: “I hope the cake lady got the exposure she was craving.”

Posting in the comments on Tyla's Facebook page, one person wrote: "Imagine defending someone extremely wealthy grifting goods for free lol. Some people are really brainwashed nowadays. Good on that bakery."

A second added: "I could have felt bad for her, if she said they weren't acting on her request and she has questioned why they would do it, but to blame the cake maker for standing up for her business and pointing out people are deserved a fair price shows a whole different side of her not the cake maker!"

And third remarked: "Catherine saying that the bakery owner was craving attention is just unnecessary, and given she wasn't even named in any of this, her making a video about it actually screams that SHE'S the one wanting attention."

Tyla has contacted Catherine Tyldesley's reps for comment.
