Creme de la Creme dubbed mean and pretentious by disappointed Bake Off fans

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't Bake Off...

Bake Off was back last night on BBC2, four months early and looking a little different. Instead of Paul, Mary and 12 eager amateur bakers in a bunting-clad tent we had teams of professional pastry bakers, Tom Kerridge and three brand-new judges in an imposing manor house.

GBBO lovers were incredibly excited about Bake Off Creme de la Creme, but let’s just say we weren’t immediately enamoured…

The new judges seemed a bit, well, mean…

And there was bitchiness amongst the bakers. And swearing. On Bake Off. 

But don’t get us wrong, it’s not like we hated it. It just wasn’t what we were expecting. 

We were impressed by the bakers’ magical skills…

Our mouths were still watering…

And we liked presenter Tom Kerridge… 

But it’s not going to get anyone attempting their own bread lion or biscuit tower: 

I guess we just all missed Mary Berry, eh?
