The Great British Bake Off is back in just one week (a week!) and to say we're excited would be an understatement. And it's not just because of Mary and Paul. And it's not just because of Mel & Sue. And it's not just because it gives us something of an excuse to eat a whole tent-load of cake.
We love all that - and we love that Gbbo is a gentler, softer reality show. But that doesn't mean it's not without its scandals - and let's be honest, we all secretly love being hysterical about a primetime series about competitive baking, don't we? So we've rounded up six of the best Bake Off brouhahas...
Meet this year's Great British Bake Off contestants, from a bodybuilder to the Dalai Lama's personal photographer

It's time to face the music. Possibly unable to bear saying "Cheryl Fernandez-Versini" one more time, Peter Dickson - the voice of X Factor itself - has announced that he's decided to "check out and cut loose". Oh well, at least we'll always have Rachel Adedeji.
But the paradox is that while Peter Dickson is irreplaceable, he must also be replaced. It's not going to be easy, but we've come up with a list of eight people who could possibly lend their voices to the tricky task of introducing various hopeful acts as they pursue their dreams on the biggest stage in Britain...
The obvious choice. Marcus is best known for his dulcet Geordie tones on Big Brother, which have become increasingly exaggerated as time has gone by ("Toniiiiiiiiiiiiight," he yells, sounding like a gruff puppy whose tail has just been stomped on). He has voiceover experience, he »

What's the fastest way to make John Cena blush? If you're Amy Schumer, feed him a glass of wine and describe yourself. That's exactly what the comedian does in the brief but hilariously sexually explicit promotional video for Trainwreck below. Warning: This video contains very adult, very Nsfw language. Enjoy...

Well, that just throws an entirely different context on an otherwise family-friendly tourist attraction. Amy ends her description by smiling »

‘Having ditched those baffling ads featuring latex pensioners, it’s now rebranding itself as the lender of choice for the sort of people David Cameron successfully wooed at the last election’
Pity Wonga. Go on, try. Clobbered for £2.6m by the Financial Conduct Authority for sending out fake legal letters, faced with losses of £37.3m in 2014, considered so morally inferior for its exorbitant interest rates that even MPs and archbishops feel able to have a go at it, and all the while suffering the stigma of association with Newcastle United Fc. Its name is worse than mud. It is Wonga.
Having ditched those baffling ads featuring latex pensioners, it’s now rebranding itself as the lender of choice for the sort of people David Cameron successfully wooed at the last election. Hence this latest ad. “What are you responsible for?” asks a sensible lady voiceover, as we meet a dinner lady, »

Two-time Oscar winner James Horner, whose emotive scores for modern classics including Titanic and Braveheart cemented him as one of Hollywood’s most adored composers, died in a California plane crash Monday, his agency, Gorfaine/Schwartz, has confirmed. The Los Angeles native was 61.
A beloved figure in the entertainment industry, Horner was perhaps best known for his work on the 1997 film Titanic, which won the Oscar for Best Picture. The James Cameron-directed romance led to two Oscar wins for Horner – one for original dramatic score, and the other for original song (shared with lyricist Will Jennings and performer Celine Dion) for “My Heart Will Go On.” His score sold 27 million copies worldwide, becoming a financial phenomenon in the composing world.
Horner is believed to have been flying a single-engine S312 Tucano turboprop plane when the vehicle crashed in a remote area approximately 60 miles from Santa Barbara, killing the pilot. »

Los Angeles (AP) - James Horner, who composed music for dozens of films and won two Oscars for his work on "Titanic," died when his plane crashed in Southern California, his agents confirmed Tuesday. He was 61.
Agents Michael Gorfaine and Sam Schwartz issued a statement saying Horner had died, although official confirmation could take several days while the Ventura County coroner works to identify the remains of the pilot, who was the only person on board.
People who fueled the plane at an airport in Camarillo confirmed that he took off in the aircraft Monday morning, said Horner's attorney, Jay Cooper.
The S-312 Tucano MK1 turboprop crashed and burned in a remote area of the Los Padres National Forest, about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
Horner's credits ran the gamut From big-budget blockbusters to foreign-language indies. He even composed the theme song for the "CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. »

On Monday, composer James Horner died in a plane crash outside Santa Barbara, California. He was 61.
“No matter how [‘Titanic’] turned out, and no one knew at that point — it could have been a dog — I knew it would be a great score.”
“I was doing a lot of thinking about James when I heard the news and I checked online. The beginning and end of his filmography are films that he did, or would have done, with me. It’s a curious bookend. We both started out on the same film in 1980, and his last listed films are the Avatar sequels, »
