“No Boris. You cannot schedule your address to the nation at 8pm: that is Bake Off,” added fan Hannah Alderson.
“We need comforting cake baking TV action at this troubling time #GBBO.”
A third named Nell Goddard added: “I’ve had many questions about the government communications schedule.
“But there is one which I believe to be the most pressing question of our time: What in the world has led them to schedule a key prime ministerial announcement at the same time as a new season of #GBBO begins?!”
Therefore, it’s clearly good news there will be no clash stopping baking fans from being able to watch the competition show tonight.
The Great British Bake Off starts tonight on Channel 4.
