Selasi GBBO Bake Off

This year has been dreadful for a number of reasons, so we were delighted to see the arrival of a fresh, lovely, advert free, uncontroversial (bar a dick bread) series of The Great British Bake Off.

But, as it’s 2016 and absolutely everything goes tits up, it was announced that the show would be MOVING TO CHANNEL 4 AND MEL AND SUE QUIT.

We consoled ourselves that we’ve still got this series at least, and, more importantly, we’ve got Selasi Gbmorittah to obsess over.


We recently told of all the reasons why he was definitely our boyfriend, not yours(not really) – but it turned out we were WRONG and he’s got a girlfriend back home.

During the Yorkshire pudding challenge, he said: "This recipe is from my girlfriend’s mum."


Deep down we knew, but hearing him say it was hard.

As literally everyone is in love with Selasi, Twitter went into meltdown.

And our personal favourite:

The nation was obviously distraught at the news that Mel and Sue had resigned as hosts, and theories about who could replace them started propping up – including a very alarming one about David Cameron.

But the more sensible suggestions but forward by the bookies are pretty good, and include Jo Brand, Jennifer Saunders and Davina McCall.

We can see it now – "Bakers, you are live on Channel 4 – please do not swear."

That would be kind of great actually.

Jo Brand, who hosts the spin off show An Extra Slice, is favourite at 6/1. Jennifer Saunders is 8/1, Sarah Millican is 12/1, and Ed Byrne is 16/1.

Other names tipped include: Emma Willis, Clare Balding, Gino D’Acampo and Rhod Gilbert.
