Video Vox Pop: Have you got the Great British Bake-Off bug?

Have your say

Reporters Victoria Bull and Natalee Hazelwood spoke to people outside Hemel Hempstead’s XC Centre to find out their views on the TV baking phenomenon.

Ben O’Mara, Long Chaulden:

Vox Pop: Have you caught the Bake-Off bug?

Vox Pop: Have you caught the Bake-Off bug?

‘Paul Hollywood, what a legend. That man makes bread like no-one’s ever made bread before. I haven’t caught the bug but it’s an epidemic – a lot of people are going down with Bake-Off flu.’

Neil Leicester, works in Apsley:

‘I do watch it sometimes, it’s quite a good show. I like to cook so I pick up some tips from it. I have to admit I’m not the biggest dessert fan, but what they cook on the show looks delicious.’

Bex Perry, works at The XC:

‘I love it, I’m a big fan. I’m not much of a baker myself, so it’s more of a respect thing. I’m a big Mary Berry fan so I mainly watch it for her, and it’s on a par with Masterchef.’

Jacqui Joyce, Abbots Langley:

‘It’s amazing, I watch it every week. You can learn so much about baking from it, you should watch it!’

Ed King, works in Bennetts End:

‘I don’t really watch it but I think I’m going to start. The food on it looks really good.’
