Thursday night’s episode of the Sport Relief version of ‘Great British Bake Off’ was a huge hit with viewers, though many were left asking the same question: what on earth has happened to Geri Horner’s accent.
Geri - who changed her name from Halliwell to Horner after getting hitched last year - triumphed on the show, but it wasn’t her baking abilities that left everyone stunned:
Am I imagining it, or has Geri Halliwell developed a posh accent? #GBBOSportRelief— Kathy (@kathy136) February 17, 2016

We're watching this late but how long has Geri Halliwell been fancy? Where has that accent come from? #GBBOSportRelief— Charlotte Wood (@char_j19) February 17, 2016

Basically, we were having flashbacks to this flawless moment:
Funny accent or not, Geri triumphed over Louise Redknapp, John Simpson (whose baking skills were, frankly, beyond awful) and footballer Jermaine Jenas.
Previous episode of the special charity version of the show have seen the likes of Samantha Cameron, Chris Kamara and Jason Manford battling it out in the ‘Bake Off’ tent.
