Queer Eye meets Great British Bake Off? Yes please, universe

Jonathan Van Ness, aka Queer Eye’s JVN, has got Twitter all of a flutter…

It all started when JVN posted a picture of Great British Bake Off presenters Paul Hollywood, Sandi Toksvig, Noel Fielding and Prue Leith – with a familiar face photoshopped over the top of Sandi’s…

“I’ve heard a rumour… #GBBO” read JVN’s tweet, after it was announced that Sandi would be “departing from the Great British Bake Off [to] spend more time with [her] other work” last week.

Since then, the tweet has been liked over 45,000 times and has attracted over 2,000 comments. In short, wow is Twitter here for this imagined all star line-up:

“DON’T EVEN TEASE US WITH THAT LITTLE BABY CUPCAKE FACE”

“I am HERE for this”

“MY GOD, YOU WITH NOEL FIELDING. AAAAAAH.”

“Would 10/10 start watching again if this is true. I stopped when it moved to C4 out of principle, but JVN in the game? Okay, I’m more in than 12-year-old me in a closet 😍😍”

“Can you IMAGINE Jonathan squaring up against Paul I’ve never wanted anything so badly in my life.”

Though it remains nothing more than a (rather wonderful) rumour at present, with JVN – who recently came out as non-binary – making history after their recent Cosmo magazine front cover, releasing a best-selling autobiography and, with their ever-adoring, international fan-base – you never know…

Channel 4 would be missing a trick not hiring this sweet, sweet cupcake, don’t you think? Let us know below…
