Ok so I had heard of it but was massively behind actually watching this show (as I was with Girls). I settled down in front of the sofa last night and saw it was on. Figuring the other choices may be pretty poor I decided to settle for The Great British Bake Off.
And I can see what the appeal is!
It’s great fun to see everybody stressing and scrutinising about how much flour to use and whether the oven is at the correct temperature and getting told off when their creation is 30 seconds underdone.
I think I also enjoyed it so much as a couple of my closest friends (who live far away so I don’t see often) love it, so we were all sending each other messages (mainly criticising everyone) throughout the programme.
As I’m new to the show I’m yet to decide my favourite (contestants?) but I’ll be keeping a close eye on it!
