Well, tonight's the night. Tonight's the night that one of the greatest televisual events of the year returns to our screens. If any of you at this juncture are even so much as thinking that I am referencing the Rose of Tralee - even in spite of the fact that the Great British Bake Off has been liberally referenced in both the title and images used for this article - then I want you to hang your head in shame, and leave this article now. I am of course talking about the fact that, at 8pm tonight, the Great British Bake Off returns to our screen.
That's right, tonight we will, as a society, gather round our respective television screens/laptops/tablets/phones/inexplicably fancy fridges that for some entirely unnecessary reason possess the capacity to display video, and begin our journey with this year's Great British Bake Off. For one hour and thirty minutes this evening we will give ourselves over to watching 13 people enter into the closest thing the 21st century has to the blood-thirsty, competitive furnace of Rome's Colisseum - a gazebo in rural England. For the following 10 weeks we will allow ourselves to be enraptured by dough, yeast, creams and all manner of icings. All else will fall into insignificance, as we become slaves to Bake Off.
In anticipation of the big moment, we've created a quiz to test your knowledge of televisions greatest competitive baking show - if you dare point out that this isn't exactly the most hotly contested genre, then I would like you to follow in the footsteps of those 'Rose of Tralee' chancers from earlier, and shoot your chuff on out of this article. See how you fare below!
