No smilies, no avatars, no flashing gifs. Just discuss the issues of the day, from last night's telly via football to science or philosophy.

It's 2017 – it's Channel 4 – it's The Great British Bake Off!

At great ££££££ cost, I have moved the GBBO thread from 'Food and Drink' to here.

Please give this new thread a chance (and try to ignore the adverts).

Blimey, Mel and Sue are looking rough nowadays ...

scottscott - 08 Sep 2017 00:43:39 (#2 of 384)

Welcome, upgoer.

Come, smell my poppadoms.

Macpaddy - 08 Sep 2017 01:13:05 (#3 of 384)

Do NOT sample his raita.

scottscott - 08 Sep 2017 01:17:21 (#4 of 384)

Oh, Macpaddy, you remember!

yumyum - 08 Sep 2017 05:14:04 (#5 of 384)

Hopefully the mods can merge the two threads.

scottscott - 08 Sep 2017 23:15:40 (#6 of 384)

(Thanks mods. And sorry for the inconvenience.)

I'm enjoying Extra Slice more this year as well - having Pru last week and Sandi this week makes it feel more a part of it.

Macpaddy - 09 Sep 2017 19:10:02 (#8 of 384)

Oh, Macpaddy, you remember!

Remember? I still can't get the taste out of my mouth.

Aw, sorry for whingeing, scottscott - I assumed you'd ignore me like everyone else does!

Anyhow, I almost feel sorry for the male judge... http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-41218525

Macpaddy - 10 Sep 2017 15:21:39 (#10 of 384)

A genuine...FFS moment.

Brookes - 10 Sep 2017 18:34:54 (#11 of 384)

That's quite an obscure character to go as, isn't it? Not quite Gorden Kaye.

TommyDGNR8 - 10 Sep 2017 19:22:37 (#12 of 384)

Rene wasn't particularly distinctive, though. What would you do short of putting a divot in your head?

frantastic - 10 Sep 2017 19:34:57 (#13 of 384)

I thought he'd come as Prince Harry.

Splattsville - 10 Sep 2017 20:12:29 (#14 of 384)

If he went with a bunch of mates (which apparently he did) as Allo Allo, then it would be quite difficult for one of them not to dress up as a nazi, given the percentage of nazis in the show.

frantastic - 10 Sep 2017 20:44:11 (#15 of 384)

Was he a well known type then? Surely you'd think it through what with people taking photos and the like.

Splattsville - 10 Sep 2017 22:36:02 (#16 of 384)

The BBC article says the photo is from 2003 - well before bake-off.

scottscott - 10 Sep 2017 23:13:28 (#17 of 384)

No worries, Tommy – gave me a welcome chance to re-title the thread. :o)

Arjuna - 11 Sep 2017 08:05:51 (#18 of 384)

reminds me of this

Ha! I like how her relates that her son explained it to her with reference to the Horrible Histories.

Arjuna - 11 Sep 2017 08:59:13 (#20 of 384)

and that his Hitler outfit is actually a bit rubbish
