Great British Bake Off viewers fume over technical fault in premiere

  Great British Bake Off viewers fume over technical fault in premiere "Not the sort of technical I was looking forward to this evening."Channel 4's on-demand service All 4 wouldn't allow viewers to log in online to watch the show and instead just presented an error page, which wasn't ideal for the premiere of one of the most popular series of the year.

Great British Bake Off viewers have been left concerned about Noel Fielding after he was left unable to present the last half of Tuesday night's episode.

When it came to judging the showstopper round, Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith and Matt Lucas emerged without Noel in tow.

Matt then addressed the elephant in the room and told contestants that Noel felt unwell, before presenting the final part of the show on his own.

During his solo presenting, Matt also leapt into action and stopped one of Giuseppe's cakes from falling off the table.

The Little Britain actor said that Noel was “feeling a little under the weather”, before proceeding to invite Lizzie to be the first person to come and present her showstopping bake.

The teenager has since addressed her exit. In a letter shared by the Bake Off's official Twitter, she wrote: "Golly gosh, where to start. This was by far the best experience of my life. I never imagined to meet so many incredible people in such a short amount of time.”

“I feel genuinely blessed to have had the chance to share my love of vegan baking with the world. If I have inspired just one person to give being vegan a go, that is more of a success to me than winning any day of the week,” she continued.

Meanwhile, Italian baker Giuseppe was named star baker for the second time.
