Oh gosh. They are all so nice! But I can’t warm to Stephen for some reason. :(

And I’m loving Noel and Sandi. :luv:

I wasn't happy with the hair either; I had a bit of a cringe each time she did it.

Enthusiastically agreeing on both counts .... Stephen sooooooooooooooo wants to win ... it's almost painful to watch him on the days when he doesn't get Star Baker :rolleyes:

I’d love Liam to win but I think Sophie has got it sewn up, but........it’s all in the editing and most years whilst the favourites get into the final it’s not who you expect that wins.

Hmmm. Thought I had mentioned earlier on that my swimming friend’s daughter is a chum of Stacey and was a guinea pig for some of the recipes. Of course they are sworn to secrecy and I have no idea how far Stacey got.

Agree

But did she enjoy the tasting?

I think if I was having a flutter I'd go for Sophie atm, calmness and flair, but it could all change. I was with her on the mascarpone, not a fan of sugared ricotta myself

I have a friend who thinks Stephen's wonderful but she and I have never shared the same taste in men :lol: . I seem to remember some small hoo ha about him already being semi-professional as well. He does do quite well but is far too smug. I can't remember which woman is which but would have a wager on next week's exit.

I think the move to C4 has been quite good all in all, the challenges are good. Still not mad about Noel for that particular job although he's a nice guy. I guess really I don't care who the presenters are, it is the bakers and judges who interest me.

Really enjoying it! Loving the presenters, and judges. PH isn't as annoying as on the beeb. Or was it MB making him annoying?

I really want Liam to win. Sophie seems a bit too up herself. The blond woman (why can I not remember her name?!) seems to always be on the verge of leaving, hasn't really excelled. Stephen is far too competitive. I always like the one who lacks self confidence to win (hmm, wonder why!?)

I thought this week that the C4 four seem much more of a real team, and I think it was MB stopped it happening previously. Just a feel

Well, the challenges get more interesting! Makes me wonder what they'll come up with for subsequent years. I liked the look of that tart.

I think that sadly, they made the right decision this week. Not who I'd have put my money on before the programme this week - she'll be next week I suspect :).

Mr Smugpants was a bit put out not to get star baker I think ;) .

I wonder if Noel should undo the top button of his shirt, what do you think?

I don’t know, he certainly had an off week but Kate has had a run of off weeks.......I think she should have gone. Either way I doubt either if them would/will make the final.

P.s. thought the challenges were good, the Cumbrian pie looked delish!

Saw it last night and was thinking of Suffs when they were asked to make Bedfordshire clangers and wondering if she could hear her Ma turning in her grave.

Mr smartypants is getting up my nose too.
