Bake Off's Matt Lucas says he's 'so old' as contestant doesn't recognise his rendition of 'Careless Whisper'
While the world may be dealing with the latest goings on in the US Presidential Election, a lot of us Brits were handling a much bigger incident last night: a contestant making us feel very old on The Great British Bake Off.
It was '1980s Week' on Bake Off, with judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith setting challenges involving '80s favourites like quiches and finger doughnuts.
At one point in the show, Matt came up to 20-year-old Peter, asking him what his favourite music was.
When Matt recreated the famous sax solo, Peter at least appeared to recognise it, though we can't help but think he was trying to politely get rid of Matt so he could carry on with his bake...
Then Matt picked Spandau Ballet's 'True', and Peter had no idea what he was on about.
It did at least provide us the entertainment of Matt recreating the music video featuring Tony Hadley's incredibly thin microphone:
"He doesn't know it. I'm so old, now."
You and us both, Matt!
