Paul Hollywood

Paul Hollywood

If Paul Hollywood went to Hogwarts, you just know he’d have been sorted into Slytherin – but for all the right reasons. He’s resourceful, hard-working, charismatic, ambitious, and cunning, and let’s not forget that he has hypnotic eyes (just like a snake, obviously). Just like Paul, you are the sort of person who expects the best… but you’re prepared to deliver the goods yourself, too. Just try to be a little more sympathetic next time someone’s crying over their soggy bottom, okay?

Mel Giedroyc

Mel Giedroyc

Yes, you’re funny – that much is undeniable. But, if your friends were asked to describe you, they’d probably also lavish praise on you for your kindness, your warmth, and your willingness to get stuck in and help out when the going gets rough. It’s for this reason that they turn to you in times of trouble; your advice is always spot on, you never make them feel embarrassed for showing their emotions, and you can always put a smile back on their face with a well-timed joke. If you were a cake, you’d be moist.

Sue Perkins

Sue Perkins

One of the funniest people around, you often employ your razor-sharp wit to ease the tension in the room, or, on occasion, to bring big-headed friends down a peg or two (we’re looking at you, Paul Hollywood). You’re also courageous, daring, and kind – and you have a knack for putting people at their ease. GBBO won’t be the same without you, Sue.

Mary Berry

Mary Berry

You may be warm-hearted, but nobody could ever accuse you of being a softy; you demand the very best from those around you (only sieved flour, if you please), and are constantly challenging people to do better. They don’t mind, however, as you’re famed for your wisdom, talent, curiosity, and wit – not to mention your fondness for a boozy bake, and that dazzling smile when you get it. In short, you’re too good for this world, Bezza – and that’s why you’re a national treasure.

The ballsiest squirrel of all time

The ballsiest squirrel of all time

There’s not many squirrels who can say that they’ve exposed their most intimate nuts to the nation, but you’ve been there, done that, and bought the batter-splattered t-shirt to prove it. You’re always ready to laugh at yourself, have a sunny attitude, are constantly the centre of attention, and dance to the beat of your own drum. All hail the ballsiest squirrel of all time!
