THE Great British Bake Off returned to screens tonight with new host Matt Lucas making an instant impact.
The Little Britain star, 46, performed a pitch-perfect parody of Boris Johnson at the start of the show - moments after the PM addressed the nation for real.
He roped in co-host Noel Fielding and judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith as he mocked government U-turns.
Wearing a blonde wig, Matt told viewers: "Bake in a tent. But please don't bake in a tent."
He stood behind a lecture bearing a caked-up version of one of the government's early coronavirus slogans, reading: "Stay alert, protect cake, save loaves."
Fans were delighted with the sketch with one calling it the "perfect opening" to the long-awaited series.

Another wrote: "Opening with a parody of the #covidbriefing that aired immediately before is peak 2020."
The skit saw 'Boris' taking questions from Noel Fielding who asked the correct way to pronounce 'scone'.
Matt's Prime Minister then turned to his experts, Paul and "Prue Whitty" who were standing at lecterns on either side of him.
