Paul Hollywood’s bakery failed a technical challenge
Paul Hollywood opened his debut bakery, Knead, at Euston station to a mixture of anticipation and sighs. Anticipation, because, as the only Great British Bake Off judge who judges precisely and the arch archduke of the Technical Challenge, fans of the show would expect Hollywood’s baking to be stellar. Sighs, because, as the only Great British Bake Off judge seemingly obsessed with his own blue eyes and by proxy himself, that prowess puts Hollywood at risk of great schadenfreude.
And so it proves, with his bakery demolished in favour of a new station entrance. SSP, the transport catering specialist that operated the cafe, has said it will consider opening a new one of the opportunity arises; for now, Hollywood has more time to work on his Instagram. [Daily Mail]
