If you’re still crying into your tea over the demise of The Great British Bake Off at the BBC, then The Great Pottery Throw Down could be your saviour.
The potter’s version of the cake contest is back for a second series at the Beeb and viewers are finding its slow-paced creativity incredibly soothing.
People were so happy to see that it was back.
Who cares if the world is burning when we have The Great Pottery Throw Down to watch 😀😃😍 #potterythrowdown— 47mum55 (@47mum55) February 2, 2017
Just watching the wheel had a hypnotic effect.

Could it be the new Bake Off?
This pottery show is the new bake off, I want to make ALL THE POTS now!— Vic (@vickielli) February 2, 2017
It certainly ticked the innuendo box for the jug and cone challenges.
"I liked her jugs tremendously!"

Pottery celebrity Emma Bridgewater even put in an appearance.
But let’s be honest – most viewers were admiring male model contestant Ryan over the plates and vases.

Could this series fill the Bake-Off-tent-shaped hole in our lives?
