Calling all Great British Bake Off fans, the first image of the new ‘dream team’ were released last night and I’m not happy…
When the news that my all time favourite show ( I don’t think im the only one) would be moving from the BBC to Channel 4 I fully prepared myself for the Sh*t storm to come!
Well, Channel 4 tactfully (not) waited for the storm to calm before announcing the new judges and the two new presenters who will be joining Paul Hollywood ( don’t get me started on Hollywood) in the new series starting this year. When I first heard who would be joining the show I was a little disspointed to say the least, but it wasn’t until I saw the new promo image upon waking this morning that I was really quite put off. It just doesn’t look right… and i’m not talking about the presenter line up, i’m talking about the scones!
Surley the cream should have gone on BEFORE the jam?! Judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood and presenters Neol Fielding and Sandi Toksvig (still not over the choices) have decided to back Cornwall over Devon in their picture as they posed in front of a table filled with scones on which the jam was splodged on before the cream.
Personally i’m a cream before jam girl, simply because cream requires a little more of a spread as opposed to jam which can be dolloped.
I have a feeling that purists across Devon may be creasing at the lack of scone etiquette seen in the image released and an even bigger feeling that this year’s Bake Off will face the scrutiny of fans all across the country throughout the series. So watch your back Hollywood… We’re coming for you!
