    Great British Bake Off. 22nd Aug 17 at 10:37 AM
    Were you a fan of Bske Off, it was one of BBCs most successful programmes, and now it's ready to return. But on C4. Will you still be watching it every week, or do you think the loss of some of the presenters, and the fact that there'll be breaks for adverts, spoil it. Didn't C4 pay a lot of money for it, then they must think it's going to work, even if they do get less viewers.
    I don't think i ever watched it, i saw clips when it was getting advertised.

    I thought the scones i made were ok, i didn't think they were that hard. That was until Donald Trump offered to buy them, he said he'd use them as bombs to drop on Nth Korea.

    I think that was the first time i've ever watched Bake Off. I never saw the other one on Bbc. Only had that on 'cos i was washing dishes in the kitchen and there was nothing else to watch.
    But some of those cakes that didn't look like cakes, were fabulous. Even the couple that wasn't very good, were much better than i could do.

    I quite enjoyed it and will be watching again next week. It was just as enjoyable as when it was on the BBC, which I was pleased about

    I liked it, those illusion cakes were amazing.

    I preferred Sandy and Noel I thought they worked really well together. I liked Pru about the same as Mary. That just leaves Paul who I never liked anyway (wish they had changed him).

    I didn't mind the adverts they were placed at the right intervals and it gave me chance to get a cup of tea (next week I will get some cake in ready )

    I will carry on watching but to be honest I think the show is getting towards its sell by date now anyway. None of these types of shows go on forever.

    I've been an avid watcher for years. I watched it last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll definitely be watching the series.

    Meanwhile the BBC's new effort 'The Big Family Cooking Showdown' is distinctly underwhelming.

    I was never a fan of Sandi Toksvig, but I've changed my opinion - she's really good on Bake off, and I've always loved Noel Fielding...they make a great team and bounce off each other...Pru Leith has slipped very well into Mary Berry's shoes and is also very good...and Paul? well, he's still very good eye

    I get my cakes from Greggs. Waste of time baking them yourself imo.
