Actor Kelsey Grammer has plans for a new pastime now his hit sitcom Frasier has come to an end - baking.

Grammer, who is expecting his second child with wife Camille to arrive in September (04), admits he'd like to reignite his passion for the kitchen now he's no longer filming his show.

He says, "I've been thinking about baking. I used to bake when I was younger, when I didn't have a job at all. So I thought now that I have a new baby daughter...

"John Lennon, when he sort of left public life, baked, so I thought maybe I should bake a little. I'll have something to do with my kids."
