And as for those viewers who complained the show had been sullied with smutty innuendo? They can lick my spoon.

Plaudits all round for a successful series that stuck to the recipe. It was a good bake.

This has been a show-stopping year for the cake-making contest.

Some might say it was the icing on the cake of a classic Bake Off series that also had delightful bakers and a seriously high pedigree, with Richard Burr getting five Star Baker awards and still not winning the series.

Mild, mouth-watering baking contest great fun for all ages.

Dec 15, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With no obvious prizes at stake it's always been the niceness and the quirks of the Bake Off candidates that has won the viewers over.

Apr 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Great British Bake Off's move to BBC One could have gone badly wrong. Thankfully, judging from the opening episode of the show's fifth series, the change of channels is purely logistical.

The Great British Bake Off is back and promises to be as addictive as a Mary Berry signature scone.

Apr 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Thankfully, the humble baking competition, which has become national must-watch fare, is back and not a moment too soon.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Nancy Birtwhistle, grandmother of eight, microwaver of dough, bottler of homegrown fruit and the one with decades of wily kitchen knowhow, had gloriously come from miles behind to win.

It's likely there has never been anyone on American reality television quite like Martha Collison.
