Do these silhouettes reveal who the new Bake Off presenters will be?

Will Young? Tamal Ray? Konnie Huq? We analyse their silhouettes for clues.

By Media Mole


This mole’s whiskers are quivering as This Morning announced that two new Great British Bake Off presenters will be revealed on their show today at 10.30am. But what can we tell from the graphic released on Twitter this morning, and will the newbies be able to fill the void left by Mel and Sue’s departure?

Update: It turns out this was a joke from the This Morning team. A JOKE. My sides are splitting, This Morning, thanks to your excellent wit. This mole is furious. I will have my revenge. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But be warned, Phil and Holly. Revenge will be mine.
