Celebrity Great British Bake Off: All The Best Reactions To Episode 1

The combination of Louis Theroux and Love Island's Ovie Soko made many viewers very happy.

The latest series of Celebrity Great British Bake Off kicked off on Tuesday night, and Channel 4 was not messing about when it came to the famous contestants.

Alongside comedians Russell Howard and Jenny Eclair, Love Island favourite Ovie Soko and Louis Actual Theroux all put their baking skills to the test in the first episode of the series, in a bid to impress Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood.

The Stand Up To Cancer special was a particularly jam-packed affair, with baking triumphs, choice footwear and an almost gratuitous number of Hollywood handshakes flying around the tent – and of course, viewers had plenty to say about it all on Twitter.

Here are some of our favourite reactions from the first episode of the new series...

Louis Theroux got the first triple handshake in Bake Off history, when Paul, Prue and Noel Fielding all showed their appreciation for his efforts

But it didn’t take long before viewers felt the judges were being a bit liberal with their handshakes...

...With many even suggesting the timing might have been a little inappropriate 

And while the aptly-named Jenny Eclair emerged the winner (with some even calling for her to stay on as host)…

...it was Ovie who once again stole everyone’s hearts (just like he did last summer)

Apart from one thing, that is

The current series of Great British Bake Off will be Sandi Toksvig’s last outing as host of the hit show, after announcing she was quitting back in January.

Noel Fielding will be staying in the tent, while Channel 4 has said the “hunt is on” for his new co-presenter.

Celebrity Bake Off continues on Tuesday nights on Channel 4.
