A lot of viewers have found themselves really cut up about the recent news that Mel and Sue will be leaving the Great British Bake Off for good when the show departs from the BBC.

Earlier this week the comedy duo revealed that they would leave the Bake Off after the BBC announced the show would depart for Channel 4 or ITV.


With the painful knowledge that Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins will be leaving The Great British Bake Off when it moves to Channel 4 from BBC One, fans were feeling particularly emotional watching the latest episode.

The duo sang a little ditty as they introduced us to the Bake Off’s first ever batter week and it sent tearful viewers into a tailspin.
