The Great British Bake Off's best innuendos this week: the good, the bread and the downright doughy


Bread week on The Great British Bake Off gave rise to many cheeky innuendos, once again many of them from host Sue Perkins, who was back after an absence last week.

But she wasn't the only one kneading her funny side to get the best dough-based jokes out of the third episode of the series.

Check out some of the best innuendos of the week:

Sue and baker Kate Barmby on how her Technical Challenge was faring.
Sue: Kate, how are your balls?
