Bake Off BFFs Selasi And Benjamina Just Had The Sweetest Twitter Exchange
These two, eh? *wipes away tear*
**Haven’t seen this week’s episode? Spoilers below!**
There are just two episodes to go in this series of The Great British Bake Off, and given the show’s impending move to Channel 4 without Mary, Sue and Mel, everything’s just a touch more bittersweet this time around.
Last night, five bakers became four as we waved goodbye to one of our favourites on this year’s show: Benjamina. The 23-year-old teaching assistant from South London was Star Baker back in Week Four, but fell down this week with second last place in the technical challenge and a Marchpane Tudor Garden that just didn’t, er, march to the top.
While we’re sad to see Benjamina go, it’s her friendship with her fellow contestant Selasi that we’ll miss most. These two had a connection, y’know?
And we weren’t the only ones who wanted them to end up together:

Sadly we won’t get to see anymore Benjamina-and-Selasi fun on Bake Off any longer, but the two of them have been pretty cute indeed on Twitter today.
This morning, Selasi tweeted a lovely message of support to his “sister” Benjamina, calling her a “good egg and an awesomely talented baker.”

Too cute. And we’re loving Benjamina’s choice of emojis in response.

SOMEONE GIVE THESE TWO THEIR OWN SHOW, FFS.
Have your say
