It's that time of year again when a dozen amateur bakers don their baking hats and compete to be crowned The Great British Bake Off champ. Last night's opening episode had the highest ratings yet with over ten million tuning in to get their first look at what will inevitably be a drama-filled, innuendo driven, cake-breaking few weeks. As usual, some of the best craic in watching was in following the reaction of viewers unfold on the old Twitter machine.
You're a funny bunch, you lot.
Here's your best tweets!
