The Great British Bake Off is back for another year, filling every Tuesday evening with a healthy dose of baking envy and some hilarious one liners from Noel Fielding, Sandi Toskvig, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood.

As usual, each week the contestants will face a signature bake and a technical challenge, before being asked to create a showstopper on a theme. Last night's episode, aka the first in the series, was cake week for the 13 contestants, who were asked to make a beautifully decorated fruit cake, some angel slices on the spot, and then the elaborate childhood cake of their dreams.

And as well as some serious cake-y creations, the Channel 4 show also delivered some excellent memes. Here are some of our favourites:

When you promised to never forget Paul and his majestic lion loaf

When we STILL missed Jamie and his garbage bakes

When you forgot for one second that Michelle was Welsh

When we were all fed up of Prue being a big baby

When we were all enamoured with how spooky-kooky Helena is

Especially Noel

When Jamie got the boot and nothing in life made sense anymore

When Henry had only just taken his Eleven Plus




When Prue had her first cheeky Nandos





When the fig rolls weren't actually that appetising

When you didn't know Alice had lived in New Zealand (except, you did)

When the sugar house collapsing was a metaphor for your life


When you gain a michelin star overnight


When a cake is compared to your dating life


When you've got your priorities right


When it's the thought that counts

When your tagged photos look a little different




When you're finally content again

Ahh, GBBO. It's good to have you back.
