Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

@EmilieT 

I did and think it looks as if it will be an excellent series.

There is a slight change of format this year. 13 contestants and apparently they could eliminate 2 at any one given time. They only eliminated one last night and they appear to be very closely bonded already as they were all seriously upset when they named the one who went.

I thought the opening week was more challenging than usual. I wont say anymore as you have yet to watch it. innocent

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

Watched it on catch-up last night. Thoroughly loved it. The contestants seemed to get along - with no inflated egos. Without giving too much away, as there are probably some who have not yet watched it, I agreed with the judges` decision on Star Baker [going on the design, work, and finished product] but also impressed with the young woman who did the Sweet Shop in the Showstopper and think she could be in with a shout in future weeks slight smile

I also love the fact there is a male university student in it this series. Same age as my grandson. Now my grandson would be hard pushed to produce a spag bol. rofl

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

At the end of this week`s programme, they announced next week will be Biscuit Week.

One of my favourite weeks is Bread Week - I love freshly baked bread.

I was wondering - does anyone else have a favourite GBBO week?

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

I certainly didnt expect them to do the showstopper on the first week, as that's usually my favourite!

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

@Mi-Amigo I love all the weeks, it's hard to pick a favourite one but I'll think about it a bit more and let you know if I can device on one 🤔

 

@Cleoriff Sounds like a great start! I'll try to catch up tonight so we can talk about it before the weekend 👩‍🍳

@Cleoriff Not too much of a spoiler, don't worry - if anything it makes me want to watch it right now, but I'll have to wait until tonight sweat smile

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

Just a quick update today: I caught up with the first episode last night, and what an episode! It was a really impressive start of the series, most of the contestants seem to be really good. Some of the showstoppers were gorgeous as well Angel
