Here are the best Twitter reactions to the first Great British Bake Off episode on Channel 4
After a year long build up, the Great British Bake Off made its debut on Channel 4 yesterday evening… and Twitter has spoken.
Last night, viewers finally got to see what their favourite baking show looked like with a new channel and line-up. And nothing could sum up the nation’s judgement more perfectly than some good old Twitter reactions.
Here are some of the finest responses from users of the social media platform to Channel 4’s first ever Bake Off episode:

Noel Fielding is talking like he’s meeting his girlfriend’s parents for the first time #gbbo

Noel Fielding has the manner of a teenager trying really hard to act sober in front of his parents despite smelling of Hooch and Lynx #GBBO

Noel Fielding’s new calm, soft-speaking personality reminds me of the Peep Show when Jeremy joins a cult.

I can accept the new channel and line up. But peppermint in a mini roll? Fuck off #GBBO

Noel on #GBBO is like watching a mate who lied about everything on their CV trying to act like they know what they’re doing, but I love it.

True, it was a little rough around the edges but it still had the same charm, and in time viewers might really warm to the new GBBO team. Noel Fielding was strangely loveable as host, even if he did look like he’d walked into the tent by accident, and Prue Leith actually did a pretty good job of taking on the role of the legendary Berry. Even the ad breaks weren’t as annoying as expected.
Channel 4, you did alright.
Great British Bake Off continues Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
