All the best groan-worthy innuendos from the Great British Bake Off


Baking provides ample possibilities for double entendre, and Great British Bake Off hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins have been famously quick to come up with innuendos.

Judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood are also prone to suggestive statements, and this year promises to be no different.

Paul recalled: "We started the first challenge we did with Madeira (cake). The first thing out of Mary's mouth: 'Nice crack'. And that set the tone really. It was hilarious."

But Mary complained that she was innocent, explaining: "I have real, real trouble. This goes on the whole time, all the way through, and I try and gather them up together - but all three, they're all encouraging each other."

Here are the best innuendos from past series:

"Stop touching your dough balls."

"Some of them have got a good forking."

"I've never eaten a nun before."

"Get those lady's fingers soggy!"
Sue gives the contestants advice about trifle-making.

"It's all in the wrist action."
Mary shares her whisking techniques.

"Good morning, bakers. The following signature challenge has been assessed by the double entendre police and I'm delighted to inform you that Paul and Mary would love you to make cream horns. And there's nothing fun to say about that whatsoever."
Sue tries to swear off innuendos.

"15 minutes till you give Paul the horn."
Sue makes an innuendo after all.
