It’s happened. Five weeks into The Great British Bake Off 2020 and Matt Lucas has finally dug out one of his iconic Little Britain characters, but it wasn’t the obvious choice – Fat Fighters spokesperson Marjorie Dawes.
Pastry Week was another calamity for the bakers last night as they rustled up pasties, eclairs and tarts in a cage. Make of that what you will.
And after a disastrous time in Chocolate Week, Lottie Bedlow pulled it back with her toad in the hole pasty, which sounded like a dream from the gods of deliciousness.
She not only proved a skeptical Prue Leith wrong and produced a mouth-watering display of pasties packed with sausage, gravy, and mashed potato, but evoked the spirit of a Little Britain favourite.
Andy – aka one half of Lou and Andy.
Basically drooling over the pasties, Matt pushed the baker for a sample.
‘I’m serious. I want that one,’ he said, before quipping: ‘That one!’
Fickle Andy caused Lou (played by co-creator David Walliams) endless anguish demanding ‘I want that one’ before always following with ‘I don’t like it’.
Obviously Bake Off fans lapped up the return of Andy:
While Lottie sailed through to Bake Off’s first-ever Japan week, Linda Rayfield was sent packing after her pastry cage fell apart and her eclairs were one of the saddest sights the tent has ever seen.
If you didn’t sob over her exit, you might over her goodbye letter.
Great British Bake Off airs Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4.
