I love the Silver Fox and all his ferocious solemnity.
He can come knead my dough any time.

Competitive baking..... sigh
I don't respect myself for this but it is the case I can't deny it.

Thanks for the reminder. Surely this will be the best thing on TV all year? I am Sky+ing it now.

MmeLindor. Tue 06-Sep-11 16:35:06

Oh, thanks for the reminder. Must watch.

Who do you think is going to win? I don't know the names yet, but the woman last week, MNetty kind of a woman. She was good.

I love it and I am gluten intolerant. hmm
It all looks so yummy, but forbidden fruit to me. Just so bloody unfair.

It is great!! I have bought the book and I hope I can do the recipes justice.

Is it brandy snap night?

Oh don't! I am so jealous. I was back in UK and caught the first 2 episodes and now I'm missing it. Have even tried to download it somehow but can't sad

Who was the 3rd one to be evicted? Who was star baker last week?

I have missed so much of it! But I WILL be watching it tonight.

Have a go at some of these Dirty! They look yummy.

Macarons. Mmmmmm!

gilbonzothesecretpsychocunt Tue 06-Sep-11 18:27:40

Love it.

Must get out more.....

ViviPru Tue 06-Sep-11 18:30:25

YANBU - I can't work out who I'm more in love with - Rob, Sue or the DeVol kitchen units....

georgie22 Tue 06-Sep-11 18:30:53

I'm also ridiculously excited about the Great British Bake Off. Not watched previous series but it's like a beacon of light in the mire of awful TV! I'm turning into my mom!

LadySybilPussPolham Tue 06-Sep-11 18:32:46

I LOVE it. DH keeps going on about how great Paul's silver fox look is...

BupcakesandCunting Tue 06-Sep-11 18:34:50



He can ice my buns any day.

EnglishMumInSouthOfFrance Tue 06-Sep-11 18:51:06

Rob is rather tasty but a little on the young side!

I watched last season and loved it, so far am not disappointed this season either.

Whats the name of the guy with the grey hair, he's far tastier than any of the baking they've been doing!

BupcakesandCunting Tue 06-Sep-11 18:58:19

Paul Hollywood and he looks like my DAD so can you not say sexy things about him because it's too close for comfort for me. Cheers!

HowlingBitch Tue 06-Sep-11 19:00:09

Oh my Bupcakes, Can I call round to yours at Christmas?


ViviPru Tue 06-Sep-11 19:00:29

ferocious solemnity how did I broaden my vocabulary before MN?

BupcakesandCunting Tue 06-Sep-11 19:01:36

You can but then you'd have to fight off my stepmum. Who looks like Jennifer Aniston.


JodieHarsh Tue 06-Sep-11 19:03:31


I am Not Permitted to watch without DH and he is on the night shift for the next FOREVER so I can't watch until FRIDAY sad angry

If I find out who gets sent home before I get to see it I shall thcweam and thcweam and thcweam until I'm thick.

allhailtheaubergine Tue 06-Sep-11 19:04:45

Paul Hollywood is a bit orange though, isn't he?

GreenEyesandNiceHam Tue 06-Sep-11 19:05:06

Rob flirts with Paul Hollywood.

Jaquelinehyde Tue 06-Sep-11 19:05:10

Oh God I love the programme, I look forward to Tuesdays now!

I'm loving Jason the student guy.

I'm going to get the book and my Mum has said I should get a Be-ro book as apparently it's has the best recipes?

I am an absolute novice and haven't baked anything for years but I have the bug now!

ViviPru Tue 06-Sep-11 19:06:04

haha amused and comforted at the extent of the phenomena that is rules about not watching programmes without the OH.

I make DP watch it with me but he gets all crotchety because it makes him "want a pudding now and there's never any sodding pudding in this house"
