Noel and Sandi make hilarious Drag Race pun on Bake Off

The new version of Great British Bake Off may be finally winning over viewers, and it’s done it with a Drag Race pun.

That wouldn’t have happened on the BBC.

With new judge Prue Leith joining original Paul Hollywood, along new hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig, the show now airs on Channel 4.

The pun came on Bread Week, and the hosts were unveiling the technical challenge to the new crop of bakers.

Asking Hollywood and Leith to leave the tent so they can judge the round blind, they started joking what they were getting up to while they were baking.

‘It’s alright, they’re going drag racing,’ joked Fielding.

‘It’s the “Prue-Paul Drag Race”, added Toksvig.

‘That is the pun to end all puns,’ Fielding laughed.

The viewers definitely appreciated the joke.


We knead this Drag Race/Great British Bake Off crossover to happen ASAP.
