Matt Lucas left viewers in stitches as he impersonated a bumbling Boris Johnson in his Great British Bake Off debut on Tuesday night. 

The comedian, 46, who has replaced Sandi Toksvig as host, was a spitting image for the Prime Minister as he recreated a spoof press conference with the slogan 'Stay Alert, Protect Cake, Save Loaves'.

Series 11 of the show was postponed by 15 minutes, after Boris addressed the nation with the new lockdown measures in the fight against coronavirus.
