Everyone likes Great British Bake Off — it’s really just a case of having watched it or not. There’s nothing not to like — a group of people getting ridiculously emotional over a ‘good bake’. It’s easy watching at its easiest.

That’s why the whole of Britain is up in arms about, first, the news that BBC has lost the rights and it’s moving to Channel 4 (with all the adverts) and, secondly, the arguably bigger news that presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins won’t be moving with it.

The duo split opinion; some find them the most annoying people on the planet and others love them, but everyone can agree that they’re a pretty vital part of GBBO. Who's going to do the innuendos now?
