The Great British Bake Off's hosts, judges and contestants are known for serving up some saucy innuendos alongside the dishes.

And this week, as the contestants tackled Tudor-inspired recipes, was no different.

Here are some of the best cheeky remarks of the week:

Mel Giedroyc to judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry as they left the tent during the technical challenge:

"Chase Mary around the maze Paul."

Jane Beedle, explaining that Hollywood had just given her pies a feel:

"Paul's just given them a squeeze and gave me a look."

Candice Brown, on the perfect consistency for pies:

"To my eye a pie should have a bit of leakage that comes out of the top."

Benjamina Ebuehi, as she discussed making her pastry:

"My pastry is so wet. It's wetter than normal."

Andrew Smyth, talking about his marzipan showstopper:

"I don't think Mary is going to want to see any cracks."
