Our favourite female cooksTuesday night's episode of The Great British Bake Off attracted more male viewers than Arsenal's Champions League second leg qualifying match against Fenerbahçe. This statistic, as recorded by Attentional and reported by Broadcast magazine, can point towards one of two things: men are no longer interested in football, or there's a certified hottie baking bread. Judging by several Twitter comments, the latter was true, and it was Ruby Tandoh who appeared to be keeping the lads away from the football.Click on the image above to see some more snaps of Ruby, and the rest of our favourite ladies keeping things hot in the kitchen.topMen choose baking over cooking!
