Bake Off was scorching this yr. Literally. The closing was filmed in the midst of that continuous British heatwave and temperatures contained in the tent have been even worse. “Not good for a ganache,” host Sandi Toksvig tells BuzzFeed. “Not good for a goth or viking either,” jokes co-host Noel Fielding. “I almost got a tan, which is really disturbing for me.”
Nobody anticipated Toksvig and Fielding to host this present till it was introduced. Fielding knew nothing about baking and Toksvig, who does not watch tv, hadn’t watched an episode. “I didn’t know the show but I knew presenting.” mentioned Sandi to Noel. “And you knew the show, but you didn’t know presenting.” But they clicked, their humour particularly, and jokes obtained more and more left-field because the collection went on. This yr? “We’ve found time this year for inflatable snakes and ladders. We played badminton with a gorilla. It’s been a fun season.”
