Great Celebrity Bake Off: Alison Hammond

What happened in the latest dramatic episode of this year’s Great British Celebrity Bake Off? Let’s take a look…

Who made six loaves of banana bread over the weekend? C’mon, let’s be honest. Quarantine has led to many of us becoming reacquainted with that dusty mixing bowl and misplaced spatula. That’s why The Great British Celebrity Bake Off, in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, is the most perfect thing to watch right now.

We’ve already seen one of our favourite documentary makers, Louis Theroux, battle it out in the tent (only to lose). Scarlett Moffatt had us in stitches of laughter. And Queer Eye’s Tan France even joked about replacing Paul Hollywood during his turn in the competition last week.

So we knew episode four, which aired on Tuesday 31 March, wouldn’t disappoint us. Here are 29 thoughts I had while watching Joe Sugg, Alison Hammond, James Blunt and Alex Jones take part in the greatest baking competition of all time.

12. Alison calling herself “boring” before “losing” her oven door is just iconic.

13. Officially obsessed with James Blunt at this point to be honest.

21. Yes, Alison! Superb puds.

23. Wait, James owns a pub? *Google searches*

24. Oh, Alex. ANOTHER medical emergency. This is high drama, folks.

25. Did Prue just call out Alex’s bad grouting? Ouch.

26. And why didn’t I stockpile biscuits?

27. James’ gingerbread pub is making me miss my local.

28. Oh Alison, 10/10 for effort love.

29. We have a well deserved winner! Well done, Joe. I hope it was worth nearly losing a finger over.
