The Great British Bake Off has returned to our screens with a brand new season of innuendos, soggy bottoms, and outlandishly bright shirts. 

Hosting duo Noel Fielding and Sandy Toskvig returned to the baker's tent with their usual balance of gothic charm and sunny sense of humour and, by the looks of things, the tenth series is set to take the biscuit.

Bread Week
Last night on GBBO, the contestants broke bread with the judges, and while some rose to the occasion others had a crumby time as their creations went a rye...  

With veggie burgers, show stoppers and a 'tear 'n' share' technical challenge on the menu, tensions were high in the tent as bakers scrambled to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith. 

Star baker
Theatre manager and fitness instructor Michael earned himself a Hollywood handshake (the first of the series) and the title of Star Baker thanks to his Mediterranean campfire creation.

Sent home
Sadly, fashion designer Amelia was sent home from the show following a "clumsy" caterpillar bake and cough-inducing chili-infused tear 'n' share creation.

Elsewhere in the tent, David was told he kneaded to improve as his work was described as "all style and no substance" by Paul, Rosie got the nod of a-PRUE-val for her safari showstopper and fan-favourite Henry was named winner of the technical challenge thanks to his chicken and pesto tear 'n' share.


If there's one thing more satisfying than thinking up food puns, it's catching up on the hot-takes, declarations of love and the conspiracy theories that go down on Twitter:

I agree...

Henry forever

So. Many. Innuendos.
