A GREAT British Bake Off star has broken her silence on her unexpected Hollywood role alongside The Rock and Keanu Reeves.
Val Stones, who became a firm fan favourite back in 2016 on the Channel 4, has confirmed that her voice was used in this year’s kids super hero flick DC League of Super-Pets.
Speaking about dipping her toe into La La Land, Val, 72, told The Sun: “The biggest thing that has happened since Bake Off is Keanu Reeves and The Rock having to wait until I say my words in the latest DC League Super-Pets movie.
“Honestly, I had people saying, ‘Val we heard you in the latest movie,’ and I said ‘oh I don’t know anything about this.’
“So I put it out there and more and more people said 'yeah it is you Val.’
“So I got in touch with them and said, ‘can you find out if it is me?’
