Another week, another case of Bake Off's Selasi getting viewers hot under the collar

The Great British Bake Off’s Selasi Gbormittah has continued to impress viewers, and his cool, calm and slightly sassy demeanour during bread week stepped things up a gear.

Those sat at home watching the BBC programme were in awe of his impossibly calm attitude – at one point, he even reclined on the floor while waiting for his bread to bake. What a man!

There was also a lot of googly-eyed focused on his “aggressive” kneading skills, thanks to his slapping around of the dough and constant knuckling in.

People were seriously bready for action just watching him, and it all got a bit hot under the collar!

There were plenty of giggles over his inability to plait his bread, especially after he said he was playing football and “not watching the girls” as a youth.

But, overall, viewers just really, really have the hots for him, and didn’t mind getting amorous over social media about him, causing his name to become a trending topic once again.
