This Twitter Conversation Between BBC One And BBC Two About “The Great British Bake Off” Is Lovely

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

1. 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.

2. So last night BBC Two tweeted this lovely message.

3. BBC One responded with this.

4. And a lovely exchange was born.

@BBCOne The puff gets doughing?

— BBC Two (@BBCTwo)

@BBCTwo We knead to stop these baking puns my dear friend. We have nothing to prove. #GBBO

— BBC One (@BBCOne)

8. And the public? Of course they joined in.

@BBCTwo @BBCOne At yeast they let you have a spin off show.

@bbcone @bbctwo Doughnut give in to them, Two. You will rise again.

10. BBC Two also tweeted this touching final dinner.

As Bake Off is going to @BBCOne tomorrow, tonight is technically our last evening with the programme. We went for a farewell dinner. #gbbo

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.
