    Should we not have a new thread? People might be slow to watch but it’ll soon get going.

    We're going to lose dear old (probable) queen Terry straight away aren't we?

    It's very GAY and very ASIAN. Again.

    Who’s the ANNOYING one this year? So far I’m finding the Irish lady for whom everything is HORRENDOUS the frontrunner on that count.

    I found Ruby quite irritating.

    Kim-Joy FTW, obvs. She's giving me Lucinda Ledgerwood vibes.

    I couldn't stand Kim-Joy. Just her face.

    I quite liked Mumsy Michael McIntyre and the jolly Indian chap.

    Yes everything from the yellow teeth to the complete lack of awareness that that his baby looked like a PENIS.

    I was waiting for someone to suggest that Kim-Joy looks like me, then I remembered that it's not 2006 and I don't have a fringe anymore.

    It’s all a bit by-the-books, in fairness.

    The shame of it so far is that the tent conditions are doing some of the bakers a disservice.

    I suppose that’s always been the case, but it’s disappointing how some of the bakers are unable to achieve their showstopper purely because of the humidity in the tent, whereas others get away with merely average bakes, simply because they haven’t melted.

    Oh yes he's hilarious. But he generally is. I saw him live at Latitude the same day as Katherine Ryan and he was x1000 times better.

    I love how they’re painting Rahul as a completely TRAGIC figure.

    “Rahul moved to the UK eight years ago and now regularly bakes to try and make friends”

    Friendless Rahul and Terry are my favourites so far. Terry looks like he’s on the verge of a complete mental and physical breakdown so I hope they keep him in long enough that he can bow out feeling proud of himself. I do also like the delightful KimJoy and Briony, whose little hand mesmerises me.

    Penis Dad or Straight Man’s Man to leave next, please.

    I quite liked Briony in the first week but I've gone off her a bit with all the crying.

    Hopefully Rahul hasn't peaked too soon.

    I’m quite fond of Karen and her fetching red beret.

    Ruby's disdain for Dan was the highlight of this week. He is the worst.

    Just caught up with episodes two, three and four over the last couple of days. It's not a vintage year by any means, is it?

    I'm very much TEAM RAHUL at the moment. I'd quite like to bring him home and keep him in a cupboard somewhere. Disappointed Manon hasn't lived up to her early promise. Obviously I ought to be behind Briony as she's a local, but it's hard work with the tears.

    And obviously I'm still very much here for Kim Joy's magnificent eye shadow.

    Rahul's endless, stuttering self-deprecation is even worse than Briony bursting into tears at everything. That said, neither are as bad as the cutaways to Tory Dan's life as a 'gay-at-home father' to little Barnabus and Clytemnestra.

    Kim-Joy is the best.

    Dan gets more awful week on week. Hopefully he will carry on being shit and the double culling will do for him.

    Rahul worries me. I fear he's going to either kill himself or everyone else in the tent as soon as he gets a negative critique.

    Gay Dad's t-shirt. I don't think he has the charisma to pull it off.
