So Bake Off goes on without Mary Berry
No Mel & Sue either- it’s all so very
Abrupt but it was inevitable,
But still, the outcome is incredible,
Paul is the only quarter of the pie
That’s staying in place but I’m not surprised,
He’s a bit of a (Bakewell) tart and I couldn’t see him leaving
But still next year’s series will have viewers disbelieving.
Some say they won’t watch when it moves to Channel 4
They’ll show no love and leave it forevermore
But I cannot lie- I’ll watch it to see
The new format, the new presenters- I’m interested to a degree
I’m hoping it doesn’t change too much
But with The Big Three departing, the viewers will clutch
Onto anything familiar that remains
But with commercial breaks included, it won’t be the same.
No more soggy bottoms, the innuendo depends
On the new presenters and how they blend
Into the show- I wonder who they’ll pick from the crop?
