GBBO is leaving this huge part of the show out this year… and fans are GUTTED

great british bake off

Say it ain’t so.

With just days to go until the new season Great British Bake Off, we’re already placing our bets on who we think might take home the title.

And after this year’s lineup of contestants was announced yesterday, now Channel 4 is sharing more news about the upcoming season and fans of the show, including us, are really disappointed.

According to reports, Channel 4 is ditching the much-loved sexual innuendos for the next season and instead including more skits from hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Tokvig.

Yes, the first episode of the new season doesn’t contain a single dirty joke and we’re not OK with it.

“I think innuendo is funny,” Paul Hollywood said of the change.

“I suppose it’s been part of Bake Off for a few years, but it’s not the be all and end all in Bake Off.

“Maybe we should do an outtakes thing after 11pm.”

The news comes after reports say challenges will be “reigned back” to make the show more accessible for viewers.

And there are even more changes expected on this year’s series with challenges expected to get an update with the introduction of vegan week and weeks based on different cultures.
