GBBO Fans Stunned Noel Fielding Is Older Than Matt Lucas

GBBO Fans Stunned Noel Fielding Is Older Than Matt Lucas

We're more than used to seeing our fair share of shocking moments ion The Great British Bake Off (honestly, we're still reeling from 2014's Baked Alaska-gate) but viewers were genuinely left open-mouthed at last night's episode.

This week's helping of the cookery competition saw our last remaining bakers tackle Eighties Week, which resulted in some difficult (and kitschy) looking bakes.

As always, hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas were left to serve up the banter between each round, with the cheeky pair making several references to the Eighties.

After performing a frivolous dance to 80s kids show Emu's All Live Pink Windmill, Fielding said that the bakers had to be "over 45 to get it".

And fans were left shocked that, after a quick Google, Fielding is 47-years-old, making The Mighty Boosh comedian a whole year older than co-host Lucas.

Taking to Twitter, many were left aghast at the news.

"Yes, Noel Fielding's a vampire, but seriously how the hell is that man 47?" queried one fan.

"Noel is 47?! Am I the only one who is in shock at this revelation?" a second chimed in.

A third added: "I actually had to Google that to double check!"

You may also be shocked to hear that at just 47, Fielding is just seven years younger than old Blue Eyes himself, Mr. Paul Hollywood.
