All the bakers are observing each other to work out when best to take their scones out of the oven, not realising that the other bakers are also doing that.

Michael Chakraverty

Yes yes, the knives are sharp. I remember well. I still have the scars (both inside and out).

Let’s unleash the beast. “Sc – ON”, or “Sc – OWN”? Let us know BTL.

I’m enjoying the celebs squeezing their sacks dry with varying looks of disgust on their faces.

Scott Bryan

Or just, you know, just eat the cream by itself, out of the pot.

Michael Chakraverty

I LOVE this challenge. Sounds complicated, but it’s actually quite simple. All you have to do to make butter and buttermilk is whisk cream until it separates. A good way to use up double cream that’s going out of date!

The bakers have to make six buttermilk cheese scones.

Scott Bryan

Served with a butter of their own making.

Kelly is now moving like a spinning top. We love to see it.

James’s sounds delicious. “That pastry is one of the best I’ve had in a while”. Sounds like a compliment, but the bar is fairly low given the circumstances.

Michael Chakraverty

David titled his bake “Revenge for My Mother’s Disappointing Desserts”, but it would appear that his mother got the last laugh. Perhaps it should be retitled “David’s Mother’s Revenge for Dismissing Her Best Efforts Throughout His Childhood”.

“It’s extremely original,” says Prue. Not sure she realises that when she says things like this, they never really sound like a compliment.

Michael Chakraverty

“A little thick, that’s the problem”, says Prue to Anne-Marie. I *think* she was referring to the tart.

Prue and Paul are now judging the tarts.

Like me on a night out in Soho. (Remember those?)

David Baddiel adding the decoration to his bake: “They’re like orange fish in a very polluted sea.”

Michael Chakraverty

“This will cool it down”, says David as he pours hot curd onto his hot pastry. Across the tent, Kelly has gone quietly intense, Anne-Marie is gasping for air and James has reached for a blowtorch.

Michael Chakraverty

Is Anne-Marie the most competitive celeb baker we’ve ever had? She is having a GLORIOUS time as her fellow celebs succumb to the chaos. Same, to be fair.
