Great British Bake Off
Viewers took a collective gasp when it looked like the unthinkable had happened in the tent.
“Barely 15 minutes into the new season and I would happily fight in Alison Hammond’s army.”
Prue Leith certainly set the tone for the latest series of the Great British Bake Off.
The This Morning favourite went down a storm with fans as she joined Noel Fielding in the UK's most famous tent.
A Damehood for services to TV surely awaits.
Things don't always go to plan in the tent – as this lot have proved.
Here's what happened to the previous Star Bakers after their time in the tent.
Yes we know it's childish, but we defy you not to laugh.
For a show with such a cosy reputation, Bake Off has had its fair share of controv.
And Great British Bake Off host Noel Fielding's audition was, perhaps unsurprisingly, even more bizarre than Paul's.
About Great British Bake Off
The Great British Bake Off' (often referred to as 'Bake Off' or 'GBBO') is an amateur baking competition that first aired on BBC Two in 2010. The series sees 12 members of the public compete weeks of challenges in order to be crowned Britain's best amateur baker. The first seven series featured Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry as judges, and comedy duo Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins as hosts. While it started out with modest ratings on BBC Two, the show slowly grew in popularity and was promoted to BBC One in 2015, where it often attracted upwards of 15 million viewers. There have been seven winners of the series - Edd Kimber, Joanne Wheatley, John Whaite, Frances Quinn, Nancy Birtwhistle, Nadiya Hussain and Candice Brown. In September 2016, it was announced Channel 4 had bought the rights to air the show, after a bidding war with the BBC, with production company Love Productions selling the rights to three series for a whopping Â£75m. Shortly afterwards, Mel, Sue and Mary all announced they would be leaving the show out of loyalty to the BBC, and the hunt for their replacements began. In March 2017, it was revealed Prue Leith would join Paul as a judge, with Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding taking over as hosts. The new series of 'Bake Off' launched on Channel 4 in the autumn of 2017.
