The Great British Bake Off's Candice has actually out-innuendoed Mel and Sue

The Great British Bake Off’s Candice Brown is on a roll, bagging the title of Star Baker – and also blurting out the best innuendo of the week.

Sue Perkins and her co-host Mel Giedroyc usually drop most of the innuendos, with judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry chiming in.

However, they were very restrained in Wednesday’s episode, leaving the field open for PE teacher Candice.

Here are some of the best innuendos of the week:

Candice, making her sausage meat, black pudding and apple amuse-bouches:

“Just giving it good squeeze together to make sure I can see the distribution of it, see if I need a bit more sausage. It’s good to get your hands in and give your sausages a good squeeze.”

Mel, to Jane Beedle as she prepares her breakfast pastries:

“Would you call that a little lattice, or Jane’s open pocket?”

Paul, admiring Mary’s Bakewell tart:

“No soggy bottom there, Mary.”

Paul, explaining how small he likes his amuse-bouches:

“I know I’ve got a big mouth, but I’m talking inch and a half max.”

Instead of innuendos, Sue was mistress of puns, making the most of pastry week’s potential. Here are her best:

Saying goodbye to Tom Gilliford, who was incorporating Weetabix into his breakfast pastries:

“As we say in the breakfast cereal world, Cheerio.”

Announcing the end of the Danish pastries signature challenge:

“Okay bakers, you’ve got five minutes for your Danish to make a killing.”

To the bakers during the technical challenge:

“I don’t want to put you in a frangipanic but you’ve only got an hour left.”

The episode also features Paul and Mary getting closer than ever, with Paul giving his co-judge an affectionate nickname: “Well done, Bezza.”
