And now Mel and Sue have refused to ‘go with the dough’ when The Great British Bake Off moves from the BBC to Channel 4 next year as part of a controversial multi-million-pound deal. Before our tears were even dry, Mary Berry followed suit. Val’s exit (Vaxit) at the end of the pastry episode this week bought us further sadness – it’s been emotional. Could the baking…
