Tom’s posh cinema snacks may have won him Star Baker on The Great British Bake Off’s Botanical Week, but we were slightly distracted this week by something else cooking in the Bake Off tent.
Benjamina and Selasi’s sneaky asides and sideways glances had everybody talking as Bake Off entered its sixth week. Here are some of our favourite reactions to the new Great British Double Act.
We weren’t the only ones to notice something was up between the Bake Off pair.

They had both ‘independently’ planned to make grapefruit meringue pies. But there was no animosity between these star-crossed bakers…
Selasi fist-pumping for Benjamina just made my grinch heart grow five sizes #gbbo

Benjamina and Selasi have such good banter like how are they so cute! #GBBO

How cute is Benjamina smiling in the background while Paul compliments Selasi? Would so ship them #GBBO

And blooming friendship.

Or maybe something more?
Selasi + Benjamina = Flirtationship Goals #gbbo

Now, not to get ahead of ourselves. Last week Selasi mentioned he had a girlfriend…

But that doesn’t mean viewers can’t imagine a first Bake Off romance…
Selasi and Benjamina – Curd it be magic now … #GBBO

Please don't let Selasi go home. Surely they can't split up the blossoming romance of Selasi & Benjamina #GBBO

selasi and benjamina are goals #GBBO

I mean, THINK OF THE WEDDING CAKE.
Could we just discuss Benjamina & Selasi? Can we have a #GBBO wedding cake as the final showstopper?! ????

Well, even if there is no Botanical Romance, we’re pretty sure the BBC can come up with a show for the pair.
I want to see a show starring Selasi and Benjamina as a crime fighting duo who speak entirely in baking puns #gbbo

After all, there will be a gap in the schedules next year…
