The Great British Bake Off is returning to our screens THIS MONTH, and before the annual slew of soggy bottom jokes and spotted dick quips start, we thought we’d revisit some old GBBO classics.

From Norman’s baffled introduction to pesto to that time the squirrel got his nuts out on the actual BBC, here are the maddest moments of GBBO history.

Join Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins for the seventh season of GBBO, starting Wednesday 24 August at 8pm on BBC1.
