With the move to Channel Four, and the resulting line-up changes, a new Great British Bake Off Eating Game was required. Mel and Sue are no longer there to shout Bake and make innuendoes, and the warmness of Mary Berry has disappeared.
Instead, we have Noel to blind you with his shirts, and Sandi to present a challenge to the camera crew as they try to fit her in the same shot as her co-host. And I think the nation has even started defrosting to Prue and her coldness, and despite her bright jackets, she still seems fairly bland.
But, we’re not there for the people. We’re not even there to see Paul get paid a fortune. If the move to Channel Four has taught us anything about the Great British Bake Off, it’s that the baking and the contestants are what makes the show. We’re there to see them and their spectacles.
We were all livid that Channel Four had stolen the most BBC show to exist in recent history. We’ve had a year to calm down, and although we all said we wouldn’t watch the Bake Off, guess what? Most of us are still watching it. And that’s because, under the surface, the show hasn’t changed.

It may no longer be getting the ratings it enjoyed on the Mother-channel, but it is still performing fantastically for Channel Four standards, and with two sponsors, they’re making a fortune from it as well.
After a few episodes, I’ve now gotten a handle on what will make you bloat every week by playing this game alongside watching The Great British Bake Off… Leave your dieting for January, and get stuck in.

Don’t forget to share this with your friends, because when they get fat, it’s not so easy to notice that you’ve been stuffing your cake hole as well.
