Any Great British Bake Off fan worth their weight in dough will forever remember the insanely brilliant bread lion constructed last year.
Paul Jagger, who looked remarkably like judge Paul Hollywood, created the fabulous carby cat creation during Bake Off’s bread week in 2015.
It was certainly one of the series’ best moments, and Hollywood dubbed it “one of the best things I’ve ever seen in bread”. Massive accolade right there.
Can you feel the loaf tonight?
In 2015 #BreadWeek gave us The Lion Bread King.September 7, 2016
However, it was also a controversial moment as Paul somehow wasn’t named Star Baker that week, and people are still getting over it.
So, for this year’s bakers, they had a lot to live up to and – as the third episode kicked off – Twitter was abuzz with chatter and memory lane posts about the now-famous lion of bread.
Will anybody be able to create anything quite as wonderful ever again?
Twitter didn’t seem to think so.
Nobody can beat that grey haired guy last year making the bread lion! #GBBO— Bethaney Hayes (@Bethaneyx) September 7, 2016
Bread week is my favorite. #GBBO Going to be hard to top last year's lion, though.— Jennifer (@bibliojenni) September 7, 2016
Paul himself also tweeted, joking that bread week is his favourite. Good man.
