    If #BinGate didn't end his baking career when his Baked Alaska was sabotaged, his beard hairs mixed into cake batter would surely bring his health & safety score down. Which is fine, because his choice of retro mustard knitwear is all he needs to get through life.

    Wearing an American star jumper on a British show? We need more stylish bad boys like Ali on the show, like someone who'll guesstimate the amount of vanilla extract needed rather than follow strict instructions laid out by Mary. Yeah, take that society.

    Paul Hollywood

    The name of a porn star, the baking skills of a god. Everyone is excited for the return of GBBO's infamous host with his open collar shirts and unreadable deathly glances. Pray that he likes your cake, Hollywood does not forgive easily.

    Stuart Henshall

    He may have been the first to leave last year's show, but his legacy of hipster accessories such as felt trilbies and western collar tips lives on. Until the 2016 season starts anyway.

    He may look like a Norman Bates mama's boy in his knitted tank, but turn your back for a minute and he'll steal your girl with his class A baking skills. Chicks dig Fair Isle jumpers and cake.
