It’s official: Mary Berry has quit The Great British Bake Off.
It comes as the show prepares to move from BBC1 to Channel 4, her exit following that of hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.
For a show so determined to avoid soggy bottoms, the mood in that tent must be pretty damp.
While some fans are pleased with Berry’s decision to stick with the Beeb, others are pretty sure this is the continued crumbing of GBBO…
Some are chuffed with Mary Berry’s decision
The wink says it all
Meanwhile, others are wondering, is it even Bake Off anymore?
There’s really no other way to put it than turn to Destiny’s Child
Some are quitting life
There are tears
Of course Channel 4 is getting rather a lot of jokes about a pricey tent…
And people assuming the BBC will just swoop in with its own self-made baking show
There are unconfirmed reports that this is how Mary Berry entered the BBC today
Sheer panic here
Elsewhere there should probably be some rousing music playing
Meanwhile over on Gogglebox…
