THE Great British Bake Off viewers couldn’t hide their amusement as one of the contestants uttered a very suggestive innuendo on Tuesday’s episode of the cooking programme.
Baker Stacey, who made it into the top six in the competition, was in the middle of working on her showstopper piece – a hand-raised hot water crust pastry pie with a savoury filling – when she told presenter Noel Fielding of a humorous problem.
She admitted: “I’m trying to patch up a crack.”
Noel couldn’t hold back his laugh as he replied: “You’re patching up your crack?”
She said: “I’ve got a big crack… it’s going to leak everywhere. A leaky crack is not a good thing.”
Naturally, viewers flooded to Twitter to share their thoughts and giggles over the remark.
One wrote: “I am an absolute child, leaky crack!!”
Another said, using plenty of laughing emojis: “No Stacey, a leaky crack is NOT a good thing!”
One remarked: “Noel’s joy at the term ‘leaky crack’ means me and him would be great pals.”
However, others thought Stacey was taking things perhaps too far in the comment, and might have been a step too far to be considered an innuendo.
One Bake Off fan said: “Leaky crack isn’t even innuendo. She knew. She kneww.”
“Patching up her big leaky crack,” another viewer wrote. “This is no longer innuendo, it’s just pure filth.”
Another said it was not innuendo, but “just rude”.
Elsewhere, viewers were delighted that the programme’s famous “soggy bottom” made a return, although a few were disappointed that it was judge Paul Hollywood that used the term for undercooked pastry, rather than former Bake Off judge Mary Berry.
A fan wrote: “How dare Paul Hollywood use the term “soggy bottom” If Mary Berry was dead… She’d turn in her grave. #GBBO #PastryWeek.”
One viewer said: “A soggy bottom just isn’t the same when Mary Berry isn’t saying it.”
While another said: “How dare Paul say the words ‘soggy bottom’ without Mary be his side.”
One incensed viewer added: “How DARE Paul use Saint Mary’s soggy bottom catchphrase! Blasphemy!”
Another agreed as they tweeted: “sorry Paul mate but ur not Mary so let’s not use the “soggy bottoms reference xxxx #GreatBritishBakeOff.”
