Bake Off mourners drive hearse outside the BBC

center_img Outside @BBC in London today! Suck it @Channel4 #RIPGBBO #GBBO— Majid Ravandi (@majrav) October 27, 2016 The stunt was to acknowledge the end of the Great British Bake Off as we know it, as Love Productions is carting it off to Love Productions.The final episode of the final BBC series aired on Wednesday night and had a record 14.8 million viewers.This was even more than when it was at its 2015 peak- an average of 13.4m watched as Nadiya Hussain was crowned winner of the show. Eagle-eyed commuters around the Oxford Circus area may have noticed an unusual hearse heading for the BBC on Thursday morning.Wreaths adorned the vehicle, reading “RIP GBBO”.Mourners holding Victoria sponges stood all in a row.Whether this is in good taste or not is up for debate, but the culprits behind the prank seemed to find it funny.The whole affair was a publicity stunt by the London Dungeon, and the press team clarified the attraction is “always happy to celebrate the darker side of life and baking”.last_img read more
