Apparently 9.3 million viewers tuned in the other day to watch the Great British Bake Off – a whopping 43% of all TV viewing in the UK. Those of us who didn’t watch it were subject to non-stop Twitter and Facebook updates, and knew what was going on whether they liked it or not. Here are 12 faces that people who really don’t care about the Great British Bake Off will instantly recognise; mainly because they’re looking back at them in the mirror.
We really don’t care about Sue and Mel’s rubbish food puns.
Or their not so subtle innuendo.
We aren’t concerned about how finely the nuts are chopped in a walnut cake.
Nor that there are two blokes with the name Paul – Oh the horror!
We’re not bothered that someone on the show is so middle class that they don’t know how to turn an oven on. #firstworldproblems
Or that there was another fridge disaster. #bingate
We’re more concerned that Mary Berry can’t taste seven shots of gin in a bloody Madeira cake. What a waste!
And that Sue Perkins got told off for being annoying.
It really doesn’t matter that the winner may have already been leaked, because we weren’t betting on it anyway.
We’re not bothered that Stu the hipster musician left first.
Or that Marie was the star baker.
Frankly, if we’re not eating the cake, we don’t want to know.
Tell us what you think. Do you love or hate the Great British Bake Off? #GBBO
