A GBBO contestant's snail bread looked exactly like a penis and it was the star of the show last night

Now affectionately known as Penis Snail.

THE THIRD INSTALLMENT of the new Channel 4 Great British Bake Off graced us with Bread Week last night – always one of the most anticipated evenings of the series.

But last night’s episode was ~different~ – thanks to contestant Julia and her idea for a showstopper.

She was going to make “The Snail Under a Mushroom” Bread Sculpture

But when it came out of the oven it seriously looked more like a penis than a snail

No matter how mature and serious you claim to be, there’s just no way that snail doesn’t look like a little bread penis.

Julia knew it as well.

“I’m making a snail. It just looks inappropriate”

Everyone watching at home called it instantly

Ignore it? It’s all anyone was talking about.

It was an early contender for moment of the season

He needs his own spin-off show

It was then presented to the judges

Paul Hollywood broke down laughing, of course

The judges needed to settle themselves

All of them were loving every aspect of the snail in terms of texture, design and taste – but it’s only ever going to be remembered for that shape

Julia went on to win Star Baker on the night – in part down to the legendary Penis Snail and the plaudits it won from the judges.

Bow down to the Penis Snail – it knows all and sees all.
