26 October 2016 | by (England) – See all my reviews

It is absolutely amazing! I don't have much else to say other than it's one of the best shows on TV!

You can get very attached to it and the contestants because many of them have such amazing personalities and its just great seeing all their amazing bakes. They're all so creative and look amazing! It's just an amazing show overall, it was a great idea and it's one of my favorite shows in the whole world!The presenters are funny and they know what they're talking about. This show cheers me up a lot, it makes me very very very very hungry!I definitely recommend this to everyone, of all ages! It's suitable for everyone and it makes you smile on gloomy days. I wish i could make such amazing bakes like many of the contestants!
