Mel And Sue Comforting Others On "Bake Off" Is Why They Are So Special

Sue: "Every second spent crying is a second less showing them how good you are at baking."

Mel and Sue will not just be missed because of their puns and their positivity. It's the fact that they constantly comfort the bakers when they're emotional.


In an interview with The Telegraph last year, Sue Perkins said that both her and Mel were against using sob stories and manufactured X Factor drama from the very first episode of Bake Off.

Maybe they cry because their soufflé collapsed, but nobody’s crying because someone’s going 'Does this mean a lot about your grandmother?’ Many of the bakers have sad stories, but guess what? We never touch on any of them.
