The Great British Bake Off is the monster BBC hit to rival Top Gear, but if you think it’s just about throwing together a fancy pastry or cake then you’re sorely mistaken.
GBBO, as fans like to call it, is the filthiest, naughtiest show on TV – and it’s all down to good old fashioned innuendo.
Hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are masters of the rude one-liner, while judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry often find describing sweet treats a minefield for double entendres.
With the show returning to BBC One, here are a handful of spectacularly funny Great British Bake Off innuendos from past series. Expect a lot more of this over the next few weeks…
