The Great British Bake Off finally made its return to Channel 4 on Tuesday night (August 28), and while it brought us some hilarious innuendo, there was one big change people weren’t exactly chuffed about.
Ever since the first series on the BBC all the way back in 2010, week one has always been Cake Week. But this time, week one was Biscuit Week and Cake Week is going to be week two.
Ok, we got regional themed biscuits, actual wagon wheels and 3D selfies made entirely of biscuit. But longtime fans of the iconic baking show just wanted to see cake, cake and more cake.
Some people even especially bought cakes to eat while watching the show, only to be faced with fricking biscuits.
And someone else went even further and made an actual cake. Not cool, Bake Off bosses. Not cool at all.
Biscuit Week replacing Cake Week wasn’t the only thing that upset viewers, though. Judge Prue Leith also riled a few with a certain catchphrase.
As she and Paul Hollywood sampled the new bakers’ biscuits, Prue praised one as being… “worth the calories”.
Just what we wanna hear when we’re watching a show about baking, Prue!
Also on Wednesday night, producers were forced to deny allegations that the new series is a fix after it was revealed that contestant Manon Legreve had already made her cooking competition debut.
Manon, who was crowned the first Star Baker of the series, originally appeared on the BBC’s The Box, which was hosted by James Martin a few years ago.
Still, other than all of that, we really are delighted Bake Off is back in our lives!
The Great British Bake Off continues with Cake Week (FINALLY!) next Tuesday (September 4) at 8pm on Channel 4.
