Huh. Looks like the I Have Drawn You meme may be due for a reinvention - anyone with halfway decent face-morphing skills care to start I Have Baked You?

Jesus fark that episode was truly nightmare fuel.  This round of bakers have some serious work to do to convince me they aren't all chosen simply because they were the only people willing to risk COVID-19 to get on TV.

Honestly.  From the opening WTF-ed-ness of dumbass cake flavors and people who don't know what a f*cking Battenburg is, to people who don't know to prep their pans when making a pineapple upside-down cake (Seriously?  THAT'S a challenge to you mooks??), to the f*cking "Nailed It!"-level carnage of the "showstoppers", it was all awful.  Seriously awful.

And then there's the vapid walking thumb they now have in place of one of the best hosts on TV.

What happened to you, GBBO?  You used to be cool.

Isn't there an American spin-off of this called "Nailed It"?

Change the show's name to 'The Great British BM' & Bob's yer uncle tickety-boo!

In the spirit of 2020, I am hoping for more trainwrecks like these. It's what we need and all we deserve.

I did see it, I just didn't think it was worse than what happens to animals during Anthony Bourdain re-runs, which I'm also watching.

Thought it was amusing seeing a David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust face that made him look clinically obese, which isn't exactly something that Bowie was ever known as.

Sandi wanted to do other projects, one of which might be the show that's been airing after Bake Off on Channel 4 in the UK, concerning adult illiteracy.

Also, dude has alopecia. Bit harsh to criticise him for that.

I think the problem is that Noel and Matt are both kinda cloud cuckoo landers, Sandi at least could be the, for want of a better term, straight woman.

What happened to you, GBBO?  You used to be cool.

shiat, it's not like this is even the original lineup. There was a bit of wailing and gnashing of teeth when Mel, Sue and Mary left, too.

The worst part is this new Matt creep. Hideous and unfunny. He manages to be less funny than Noel, which is a feat.

Not criticising him for hair, though he does look like a thumb, he has no neck.  I'm criticising him for being a total numpty.  His act is "airhead".  Paired with Fielding, it's not a good balance, and he's pretty useless.  They needed a better replacement is all I'm saying.

Well - that and holy f*ckballs did you SEE the crap they were putting out?  I've never seen an episode go like that.  Ever.

Divine as Ziggy Stardust. I think it kind of works.

Sporadic re-runs of the original Great British Baking show here. Along with their Master Classes-which are quite useful. Have no interest in watching the new Flop Sweat version, it looks awful. As the pics easily proved.

Matt Lucas is a brilliant comedian, but I was so disappointed in his 'hosting'.
