Channel 4 bosses have reportedly banned any naughty banter from the new series of The Great British Bake Off.

Apparently, innuendos like soggy bottoms, stiff peaks and nice baps have all been axed in order to make it more family friendly.

So just in case the rumours turn out to be true, we have rounded up some of the best Bake-Off #bants from series' past!

You can meet the class of 2018 below and scroll down to check out the full list of innuendos...

1. “Some of them have got a good forking”

Back in the BBC days, even Mary Berry helped lower the tone (and widen the smiles)


2. “I’m ganaching my buns”

Contestant Diana was literally stating a fact. What’s wrong with you??


 3. “It’s all in the wrist action”

Whisking. Mary was talking about whisking. Obvs.


4. “The terror of a soggy bottom has been keeping me up all night”

Despite the fear, Kimberley made it through to the series four final
