Is anyone watching the Bake Off?

I didn't used to watch but it's grown on me in the last few years.

The Aussie version is on pay TV here, so I can't watch it. They have shown the British version here before, although several months after it aired in the UK.
We have another show here called Zumbo's Just Desserts. Similar concepts to the Bake off show, but all desserts. Each episode the contestants have to make a dessert of their choice based on a theme Zumbo puts to them. The bottom two contestants then have to replicate a Zumbo original dessert in 3 hours which has the same theme. They've used liquid nitrogen, chocolate tempering and traditional dessert methods with twists.
Adriano Zumbo is a dessert master in Australia. He and Rachel Khoo host the show and judge the desserts. Rachel Khoo seems to do most of the talking.

For the last few weeks they advertised the the Zumbo dessert that defied gravity. It was a floating chocolate hat with a surprise inside the hat. The hat was a nod to Willy Wonka. That episode aired on Tuesday night, ironically the same day that Gene Wilder, the original Willy Wonka died.
Zumbo has Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka tattooed on his arm. In the end it was a wonderful tribute to Gene Wilder.

It sounds really good Margi. I like Rachel Khoo.
She's done some cookery TV over here.
