'The Great British Bake Off' made a welcome return to our TV screens on Wednesday night and as the fifth series got underway in its new home of BBC One, the Great British Cake-Loving Public had plenty to say about it on Twitter…

But first it was time to get the official handover out of the way…

Which was graciously accepted by BBC One, complete with a puntastic tweet of thanks…

And it was nice to see the GBBO official Twitter account being all responsible…

Paul Hollywood's baby blues were as icy as ever.

But it seems hygiene standards in the GBBO kitchen may have slipped this year.

And it wasn't long before the double entendres began…

Heck, even the Beeb were getting in on the innuendo act (thanks Sue)…

And as the tension built (it didn't)...

It all got a bit too much for one of the bakers, resulting in the first tears of the series. Some were sympathetic...

Others less so…

Especially when you dare question Queen Mary.

But there wasn't quite so much love for Mr. Hollywood.

And, of course, we all thought we could do a much better job than any of 'em…

Anyway, back to the cakes. Oh.
