The Great British Bake Off returned to screens last night with a fresh batch of celebrities geared up and ready to cook.
And drama ensued just four minutes into the show, as YouTuber Joe Sugg obtained a pretty *tiny* cut on his finger and ended up fainting - albeit for about 30 seconds.
Yep, the former Strictly Come Dancing star had barely started his tray bake when the paramedics had to be called, as James Blunt, Alison Hammond and Alex Jones looked on from the sidelines.
As he got up again, Joe declared: "Did I pass out? That's a good start..."
But he'd already made TV history, with fans flocking to claim the moment even topped Gillian McKeith's infamous collapse on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!.
"Gillian McKeith: I did the best faint ever on reality television Joe Sugg: Hold my beer. #GBBO," one fan wrote.
While another joked: "But who fainted better? Gillian McKeith of Joe Sugg #GBBO".
A third concurred: "@Joe_Sugg has just done a Gillian McKeith #Bloodgate #GBBO".
In Joe's defence, despite descending to the floor, he was a true trooper, and - unlike Gillian - was back up in minutes asking how much time he'd lost on his bake.
Plus, he even went on to win Star Baker at the end of the day. That's quite a comeback.
While the mishap gave everyone a good chuckle, it was soon forgotten thanks to his co-stars Alex Jones' rather interesting showstopper bake, which also got the nation talking.
Moulding a little figure, which she claimed was a man, The One Show presenter Alex seemed pretty proud of her creation.
But viewers at home spotted what looked very much like a vagina on the figure where Alex had tried to stick the two legs together.
Take a look for yourselves...
"WHY has Alex made a fondant vagina?," one viewer gasped.
As another exclaimed: "Wait... did that little fondant figure have a giant vagina on show?"
"I'm a bit behind but did Alex's little person have her vagina fully on show or was that just my twisted mind?," a third wrote.
LOL. Bake Off really is the light relief we need at a time like this.
