He captioned the meme: “Situation in Britain right now #GBBO”.
Others shared funny GIFs about the new ad breaks – which many viewers were not impressed with.
There were other funny ones about Noel imitating his character from The IT Crowd while asking the bakers what they’re making.
One of the funniest of all was captioned: “The moment you realize that Mary Berry isn’t coming back to Bake Off. #GBBO #GreatBritishBakeOff” attached to an old clip of Gemma Collins on Towie.
She says: “Are you joking me? If I’m being honest I’m a bit p*ssed off about it”.

The technical challenge left the judges unimpressed
However, as the contestants set about the challenge, viewers at home were shocked about one ingredient in the yummy cakes.
Prue Leith set the challenge with new presenter Sandi Toksvig telling them: “We have to set the very first technical challenge which today involves Prue wanting you to make 12 chocolate mini rolls.
“That’s 144 of these childhood favourites; each one of which needs to have a delicate chocolate sponge, a swirl of peppermint cream and covered in chocolate.

Another wrote: “Peppermint mini rolls!?!?! Since when are peppermint minirolls a thing?! #GBBO”.
Someone else said: “I was enjoying the new #GBBO until someone told them to put peppermint in mini rolls”.
Another added: “also are peppermint mini rolls really a thing? Have I been living my whole life wrong all this time? #tuesdaythooughts #gbbo”.
