Did Channel 4's Bake Off continued to rise, or did the cracks start to show in Biscuit Week?

Bake Off 2017 episode 2

Channel 4’s The Great British Bake Off faced a crunch test in Biscuit Week this Tuesday. After a strong start that saw over six million tune in for the opening episode, could the show continue to rise?


Well, judging by the early comments online, viewers were just as happy with the new-look show this week, settling into the same rhythms of previous series: namely, laughing at Bake Off innuendos and celebrating contestants through good times and bad.

New presenter Sandi Toksvig even managed to add a touch of philosophy to proceedings as the bakers shared their stories of biscuit-based romance.

Noel Fielding’s fashion sense might not yet match Mary Berry’s floral bomber jackets, but his style still got thumbs up from fans.

Although considering this was Biscuit Week, surely someone could have baked something a bit more… traditional?

Two weeks in, and the connections between the bakers are growing. Liam, the youngest baker in this year’s competition, shared a sweet moment with the oldest ever contestant, Flo.

While, in classic Bake Off style, everybody pitched in to make sure everyone finished on time.

Best thing about Bake Off biscuits? Booze! Although, all this talk of spiked bakes had fans thinking of a dearly departed former Bake Off judge…

…Which was made worse when new judge Prue Leith said there was “too much” in one of the bakers’ creations.

But it was OK, there was plenty of another Bake Off ingredient: innuendo.

Although in the showstopper biscuit board game challenge, EVERYONE missed an o-pun goal.

There is one problem with Bake Off on Channel 4: with the addition of adverts, the episode doesn’t end until 9.15pm. That gave some viewers a tricky decision to make at 9pm, with Doctor Foster series two on the other side.

What did you decide? Bake Off’s episode two ratings tomorrow will tell all…


The Great British Bake Off continues next Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4
