BBC trolled over the death of the Great British Bake Off with hearse and wreath


Channel 4 recently acquired the rights to BBC flagship show, the Great British Bake Off, leaving the broadcaster without its flagship show following its conclusion last night with the victory Candice Brown in the final.

Mocking the loss, London horror-themed tourist attraction, the London Dungeon, (no doubt aware that Halloween fast approaches) grabbed the low hanging fruit, opting to troll the BBC.

The BBC broadcasting house was visited by a hearse and a squad of mourners carrying a wreath stating RIP GBBO, which is also the hashtag the group is using to gain leverage on Twitter.

Around 14 million people tuned into BBC’s GBBO final on Wednesday (26 October), it will be Channel 4’s job to secure these viewers following the relaunch on its channel.
