Bake Off viewers are letting off steam as they’re NOT happy about last night’s episode

You DON'T want to piss off GBBO viewers

Bread week on The Great British Back Off is usually one of the best. They have three tasks as usual and create some wonderful bread designs.

Last year it gave us the bread lion so the bar was set considerably high for this year’s amateur bakers.

And while there were some marvellous breads made during the last task, it was the technical bake-off which has annoyed people. ‘Bake’ being the operative word.
