Bake Off fans can't cope with Rahul Star Wars reaction

We just felt a terrible disturbance in the Force, as if a million Great British Bake Off viewers suddenly cried out in disbelief and hilarity at Rahul's latest reaction.


On last night's (October 16) Bake Off, a stressed-out Rahul was trying to get on with baking his Showstopper when Noel Fielding decided to give him a bit of encouragement.

"I believe in you," Noel, the wise Jedi Master said. "Have you seen Star Wars?"

Rahul then admitted that he had not, with Noel adding: "You're Luke Skywalker now, and I'm Yoda."

"What are you talking about?" a confused Rahul further asked, leading Noel to launch into an ace Yoda impression.

The baker clearly had no idea what the presenter was on about, as Noel added: "You were probably too busy studying science. While I was pretending to be a Jedi."

Viewers at home clearly could not cope with Rahul's reaction, and thought that Noel's brilliant Yoda impression was wasted:













The Force clearly was not strong with Rahul in last night's episode, as his three bakes didn't exactly impress the judges – so much so that he faced the axe and was convinced that he'd be going home.

However, in the end it was Manon who was sent home and many viewers hit out at the decision, arguing that Rahul should have been eliminated instead.

The Great British Bake Off airs on Channel 4.
