11 times Mel and Sue proved they are the queens of GBBO

How will we go on without them?

LAST NIGHT, THERE was shock and anger at the news that the Great British Bake Off will be moving to Channel 4 next year. But that’s not all.

The BBC announced earlier this evening that Mel and Sue will be stepping down as hosts of the show once it moves channels.

In a joint statement filled with baking puns (of course), they said that they “made no secret” of their desire for the show to stay at the BBC:

We’ve had the most amazing time on Bake Off, and have loved seeing it rise and rise like a pair of yeasted Latvian baps. We’re not going with the dough. We wish all the future bakers every success.

Every GBBO fan knows that Mel and Sue are a big reason why the show is so popular – here are just a few times they proved they are the queens of the baking tent.

1. Every time they add to the show’s ever-growing innuendo pile

Do you have warm hands? Either on your bag or on you?

2. Not to mention the puns. So many puns

How they didn’t do this every time is beyond us.

5. When they had zero time for Paul’s carry-on

Who’s going to tell Paul to get on with it now? Who?

6. And brought out Mary’s naughty side

The best people to have in your corner.
