The Great British Bake Off - Episode 1

Thursday, 6 August 2015

The Bake Off has begun! I have been looking forward to this as much as the finale to PLL, no exaggeration. I love The Great British Bake Off and I've really enjoyed the build up on social media this year. I read up on all the contestants weeks ago and I must say I am very surprised at who went on week one.

This is your warning **Spoilers Ahead**

Just from the write ups I knew Flora was going to be awesome. I always love having a very young contestant as they always show that age doesn't matter when you are passionate about something. I really liked Stu and Paul's write ups too, not that that helped Stu in any way this week. 

I think Stu just tried to hard to be different and original. His recipes just didn't work and every round was a bit of a disaster for him. It was a shame to see him leave this week but I don't think he would have lasted very long anyway. I liked Paul mainly because of the whole living in Wales thing, but actually watching him I think he could do OK in the competition.

Dorret didn't have the greatest of first weeks, but I think she will use that to her advantage and push herself next week. I don't think anyone has every been that upset over some chocolate mousse in week 1. 

A favourite of mine from this weeks episode is Alvin. He was so lovely and think that he could be one of the under dogs of this series.

What did you think of the first episode of series 6? Do you have any favourites yet?
