The BBC Said Goodbye To "Bake Off" In A Devastating Montage

"I've enjoyed every minute" — Mary Berry.

The biggest British television story of the year was the news that Bake Off is leaving the BBC and heading to Channel 4, resulting in the departure of Mary Berry, Mel, and Sue as judges and presenters.

The fallout has been a bit weird and awkward.

We literally JUST redecorated the canteen at the BBC 😒 #GBBO

The two Christmas specials were the last episodes to air on the BBC. Filmed months before the contractual dispute between Love Productions and the BBC spilled out into the open, there was no opportunity for the presenters or judges to address the move whilst it was on.

However, after the end of tonight's episode, BBC One unexpectedly aired this Bake Off montage.

It is unclear whether this was made solely by the BBC, or involved Love Productions. Both Love and the BBC have been contacted for comment by BuzzFeed.

The montage featured some of our favourite moments...

It's really quite devastating to watch.

That was properly classy. Well done @BBCOne on your goodbye to #BakeOff... now if you'll excuse me I've got something in my eye.

The final episode on the BBC was also an absolute belter, too. It featured peak innuendo.

There was even a Mary Berry booze joke.

The best moment was when Mary Berry was given an eight inch horseradish by contestant James Morton.

It really was a sight to behold.

When someone in the future asks me why Bake Off was such a great show I will just show them this clip #gbboxmas

An added weird bonus was that this was one of the last Showstoppers presented on BBC One before the show heads to Channel 4.

Thank you Bake Off on the BBC.
