Excitement might be gathering for tonight’s Great British Bake Off denouement. But some of us are feeling rather sad that our weekly excuse to indulge in totally inappropriate innuendo is being taken away from us. No more soggy bottoms! No more smirking Paul Hollywood as Mary Berry comments on a contestant’s nuts.

The BBC might have received complaints from viewers outraged at the “smut” being delivered to licence fee payers in the guise of a cookery competition. But I’d imagine I’m not the only one tuning in to sample the sexual tension between Paul and Mary (commented upon so readily by presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins) - a recipe for entertainment that makes an otherwise pedestrian cookery format prime time telly. 

As Mary would probably tell us, dirty jokes are only funny if you have a dirty mind.
