Fans of the BBC’s Great British Bake Off mourned the end of the series by sending it off with a funeral.
The baking competition aired it’s last episode this week, with the BBC commissioner previously admitting that they were “greatly saddened” to lose the show.
Mourners gathered outside the BBC to say a final goodbye to one of their most-loved shows.
The procession was complete with a hearse, flowers and customary cakes with mourners dressed in black.
However the funeral wasn’t actually held by the BBC – but was a publicity stunt choreographed by The London Dungeon.

“As the home to one of London’s most notorious bakers Mrs Lovett, we decided that the London Dungeon should lead the nation’s mourning,” a spokesperson told The Telegraph.
“Being a GBBO superfan, Mrs Lovett is distraught that GBBO has had its final airing on the BBC.
“London Dungeon is known for celebrating the darker side of things, so we thought this was an ideal recipe of drama and baked goods with a liberal sprinkling of the macabre.”
