Someone set up a helpline: last night (September 12) it was announced that Great British Bake Off will be moving from the BBC to Channel 4. From the way Twitter reacted you’d think Mary Berry had been revealed as one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Some vented their anger via a lot of swearing, others made rash statements that will make you scream at your screen in rage. Prepare for the Great British Overreaction…
Someone’s clearly never had a nightmare
Waking up and thinking it must all have been some sort of twisted nightmare, realising it is isn’t #GBBO

Obviously it’s all Corbyn’s fault…
If Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t call for the renationalisation of #GBBO, then what exactly is the point of him?

What would Mary think of your language?

Because adverts haven’t been a thing for the last, I don’t know, FOREVER
So #GBBO will be heading to Channel 4…HOW WILL PEOPLE COPE WITH ADS?!?!

These people don’t like change
I am in shock. #GBBO is tense enough as it is. If you add in Ad Breaks I don’t think I could cope. I don’t like change

Calling this an overreaction might be an understatement

Good to see classism is alive and well
What a way to make a nice middle class show cheap and nasty…channel 4 is the worst. Plain tacky #GBBO
