Some reflections (I'll spoiler for those who are planning to All4 and haven't been on Twitter since 9:45):


Spoiler:
Show
1) That intro was the best thing ever. Some of the acting in the intros has been quite tiresome but this one was absolutely amazing, especially given (and they obviously wouldn't have known this before yesterday) what it followed. I absolutely lost it when they zoomed out to show Matt, Prue and Paul at the three lecterns. :rofl:

2) Sura seems to have divided the crowd. Had she actually won Star Baker I'd have praised her for winning at all costs, but now it's just a minor act of sabotage.

3) I feel like I don't really know these people yet, so I'm not sure how I feel on the judges' decisions. Star Baker I feel was probably right, but I think Loreia can feel hard done by going home.


4) Am I the only person that thinks Henry from Durham from last year or the year before is probably the same person as Tom Harwood?

A right-wing rent-a-gob, basically a bit like a young Jacob Rees-Mogg, but with no elected mandate or good reason to appear on as many news panels as he does.

He was also a student at Durham a few years ago, which is the reason for the comparison.

How do you remember everyone's names?
One of them looks like they've been on GBBO before.

I think I remember one contestant saying that they had a sibling go on it in an earlier series, not sure who though

I don't remember everyones names until near the end of the series tbh :nah:

Haven’t been a fan of Matt Lucas since he stopped being the baby on Shooting Stars. It all just comes across as too needy and he takes me out of whatever I’m watching.

The black/brownface stuff sat uncomfortably with me at the time and still does as well.
