“Don’t worry about it, it’s fine,” Dave assured her. “I’m sure they can go by what they looked like before they went over.”

Sura knocking Dave’s pineapple upside down cakes off his slate is still the biggest disaster of 2020.

New host Matt Lucas told them: “The good news is, the front two [cakes] are fine… we’ll tell Paul [Hollywood] what happened.”

Shortly after, Sura stood weeping over what had happened and presenter Noel Fielding comforted her.
