Perkins has 574,000 followers on Twitter
TV presenter Sue Perkins has said she is taking a break from Twitter after receiving threats over reports she was replacing Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear.
Perkins, who presents BBC One’s The Great British Bake Off, was among several names being speculated over as possible replacements for Clarkson.
Clarkson was dropped by the BBC in March after a “fracas” during which he punched producer Oisin Tymon.
Perkins said she is “off Twitter for a bit”.
