Speaking of bakers...

I'm quite surprised that no-one has mentioned anything anywhere I can see about how close Iain Watters is to my name.

I don't watch Great British Bake Off, but even I realise that he's just become reality-show-famous...

It's a BBC TV 'reality' game show where people bake stuff, with one person being kicked off until you get a winner.

It is in its fifth series and is very popular - 8.5 million people saw the 'Baked Alaska controversy' episode this week, apparently, and that will go up with use of the iPlayer catch-up. The US version is 'The American Baking Competition'.

.. so important is it to the UK, that the contestant whose Baked Alaska was ruined got onto the flagship BBC TV news programme, Newsnight, to talk about it:

Ahh
I did wonder (couldn't remember your surname).
But when I read his name I was like "That's oddly familiar".

But it's also similar to a business friend Ian, and then the paedophile Ian that got (and possibly still gets) Twitter abuse for being the singer, rather than the retired IT guy :-/

Randomly, that's an Ian Watkins.

Must be something in the name :-)

Hadn't heard his surname before

Some of us thought it. :-)

I noted it. I enjoy watching the show and the Jo Brand sequel on Fridays too. Ian came over well on that. Do you bake much?
