    Now I know who won the Great British Bake Off and I am not happy about this – maybe take this headline down or modify it because it is pretty spoilery?

    • http://www.OpposableThumbsBlog.com Joanne Mallon

      To be fair, the Bake Off final was screened 5 days ago and has been very widely reported since then. I don’t think Stephen has done anything wrong here.

      • mirjoy85

        Fair enough. It hasn’t aired in the US yet. I’ve been trying to stay caught up with the BBC stateside, but those of us on the other side of the Atlantic haven’t seen any headlines yet.

    • Stephen

      Very sorry about that! I’ve changed the headline to be less spoilery

      • mirjoy85

        Thanks! I’m sure other fans will be grateful.
