    Two channels tweeted each other, and a delightful pun battle was born.

    You *might* have heard that The Great British Bake Off is back tonight.

    You *might* also have heard that it has now moved over to BBC One.

    So last night BBC Two tweeted this lovely message.

    Goodbye, Great British Bake Off. Have a great time on @BBCOne. Never forget where you came from.

    Bake Off ordered cake. “You don't want a starter or anything?” we asked. “No, Two,” Bake Off said. “There is only cake.”

    As the night went on we laughed, we cried, we reminisced. Soggy bottoms, Paul’s sapphire eyes, Mary’s floral jackets. It was lovely.

    Later we dropped them off at One’s country mansion. "Goodbye, Two," said Bake Off. "We’ll always have the squirrel." And they were gone.
