Great British Bake Off: Fans have admitted to abandoning the series for a rival show [Channel 4]

The baking competition returned last week on Channel 4 after moving from BBC One last year.

Though fans were happy to see the Great British Bake Off back on screens, they admitted to ditching the show during the second episode of the series.

Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith, Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding have proved a hit with viewers as the new Bake Off team so far.

But it seems they were no match for the return of BBC One drama Doctor Foster.

Suranne Jones returned as Gemma Foster in the second series of the gripping programme on Tuesday night.

The return of Doctor Foster faced a clash as it started at 9pm – while the all new Bake Off doesn’t finish until 9.15.

Rushing to social media as they realised the overlap, fans fumed that they’d miss the last part of the baking competition.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Who thought it was a good idea to overlap GBBO and Doctor Foster?”

With another posting: “Doctor Foster over #GBBO any day. BBC programmes are just better.”

“Forget #GBBO… It’s time for Dr Foster!” added a third.

While a fourth said: “Can someone let me know who goes home…I’m watching Doctor Foster now #GBBO”

At the end of the episode, Chris was revealed as the contestant who was heading home.

After announcing that he’d been axed, judge Prue admitted that “everyone” was going to miss the star.

Great British Bake Off continues Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4.
