After kicking off the last series with Matt Lucas’ Boris Johnson impression, the heat was on for the Great British Bake Off team to serve up a similarly iconic opening as the new season kicked off on Tuesday.
Fortunately for them, they just about managed it after letting Paul Hollywood unleash his inner rock star for a special musical introduction.
Donned in mullets and cowboy outfits, they belted out lyrics including: “You can ice your bun, and then when you are done, You can load your quiche with cheese and ham.”
Let’s just say it was clear to see Paul was loving every minute of it...
The first episode of the series saw the new batch of bakers tasked with creating “awe-inspiring” anti-gravity illusion cakes in the first Showstopper of the series.
The Great British Bake Off continues on Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
