This week vastly improved by the absence of Russell Brand.

Brand did great. I thought he was going to deliberately self-sabotage the bakes like Tim Minchin did last year, trying to be a rebel on Bake Off, but he did rather well.

I have nothing against his baking.  It's his person I find massively annoying. Not a moral objection, just an interhuman allergy.  I thought the rest were fine, though; John Lithgow was endearing, and Hannah Cockroft presented as athletes often do on these things: competent, low-faff effort.

I found James Acaster's doomed efforts far more entertaining, though.  (His fondant amusement park mascot was so comparatively competent that I was suspicious of its origins.)  And Rylan Rylan-Rylan was more likeable than I anticipated; I appreciate it when they're surprisingly skilled but not cocky about it.

JV was robbed, some good looking bakes from him.
Really enjoyed the "smash the patriarchy" cake.
Show improved when Big Narsty left - him and Vegas kinda occupy the same energy (but Narsty's loud, belligerence isn't funny or charming).
Liverpool jumping girl was good too - her last cake was hilarious.

Are Mel and Sue going to be contestants on this thing?

Agreed on Big Narstie's departure.  I think Prue poisoned him for the greater good.

I was curious to see if Johnny's ceramics experience translated at all, and it seemed to--he's deft with his hands and comfortable mucking around in a way inexperienced bakers often aren't.  That stout cake had a gorgeous color.  I thought he might win as well but I'm guessing Jess's stuff just tasted better overall.

Next week Joe Wilkinson and Jeremy Paxman, together as they were always meant to be.  I might need to cover my face with my hands and watch through my fingers.
