Matt Lucas plays the modest Boris Johnson in his debut sketch
The Great British Bake Off made a political statement after returning for their eleventh season on Tuesday night.
During his first appearance on the show, co-host Matt Lucas impersonated the complainant Boris Johnson by recreating a satirical press conference under the slogan “Stay Vigilant, Save the Cake, Save the Loaf.”
The 46-year-old comedian who replaced Sandy Toxvig as host had a spit photo of the prime minister at the show’s opening, which was postponed to 15 minutes after Boris approached the nation with new blockade measures to fight the coronavirus.

On the sitcom, Matt, who was wearing a platinum blonde wig and standing in front of the Union Jack flag, said, “I’ve been talking about that, you know, the printer is upside down again. And oh no .. well .. how? Ah yes, that’s really good, I can read well.
– Well, let’s get it wrong… yes. Good evening, let’s go straight away. We are now approaching stage 46.
This means that depending on the height it is Tuesday morning or Wednesday evening. We, we speak of bread, if it is necessary to bake in a tent, to bake in a tent.

But please don’t bake in a tent. We ask people for common sense about dividing hundreds and thousands.
Then Matt said he would answer a question from “Unorthodox Lady Noel.”
Then Noel Fielding, co-host of the little British superstar, said, “Hey PM. Just one question: “Is that sc-oh-ne or sc-on?”
Inept Boris: In the sitcom, Matt, who wore a platinum blonde wig and stood in front of the Union Jack flag, purred to himself, strangely impersonating the premiere
Matt said he was going to take the question to the “experts” – a parody of Professor Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance-Pro Witte (Pro Leith) and Professor Paul Hollywood.
After Bro and Paul gave alternative replies, Matt said: Well, I hope he can explain this to you “before he takes off his wig to tell” all that was left for me to say is …. Welcome to The Great British Bake Off ‘.
Viewers swiftly gathered on Twitter to compliment Matt for his ingenious parody.
Parody: Referring to a business letter from home, he said, “We, we, speak of bread if you have to bake in a tent, or bread in a tent. But please don’t bake in a tent
One fan of the show wrote, “I really like Matt Lucas in Pick of Off,” while another added, “Sexy. #Mattlucas #boris #BakeOff ‘.
Third Voice: “Matt Lucas is a really great addition to #GBBO.”
The fourth stream of scenes: “Matt Lucas does Boris Johnson better than Boris Johnson.”
“Matt Lucas to be Boris is just what I need #smile,” another fan wrote.
Another said, “There is no context in which to definitely pull back.”
Funny: Matt said at the time that he would answer the question “The Lady in Unconventional Dress, Noel,” aka his co-host Noelle Fielding
Urgent matters: Housewife of the Little Britain star said: “Hey Prime Minister. Just one question: “Is that sc-oh-ne or sc-on?”
Experts: Matt said he would forward the inquiry to “experts” – a parody of Professor Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance – Pro Whitty (Pro Leith) and Professor Paul Hollywood
This is not the first time Matt has shot Boris with an amazing personification.
In May, he summed up the confusion surrounding the prime minister’s appearance in a satirical 20-second film.
Confused members of the public mocked Boris and his government after he abandoned the mantra of “stay home, protect the NHS, save lives” and instead urged people to “stay alert, control the virus and save lives.”
He also presented a three-step exit plan and a five-step alert system to describe the epidemic in the country.
But the new measures and fixes to strict lockout rules – which include being able to leave your home to exercise as much as you want – have left people overwhelmingly confused.
“Sexy”: Viewers swiftly flooded Twitter to compliment Matt for his ingenious parody
Little Britain star Matt summed up the nation’s moods in a hilarious impersonation of the prime minister.
In a YouTube video he said, “So we say don’t go to work, go to work, don’t take public transport, don’t go to work. Stay home, if you can work from home, go to work, then don’t go to work.
– Get out, don’t come out. And then we will do or not do one thing or the other.
Piers Morgan ran a video on Good Morning Britain this morning and said it was “very funny” but the confusion over Mr. Johnson’s speech would lead to more deaths.
