Bake Off stars mimic the Beatles as they pose on crossing ahead of new series

The Great British Bake Off is set to return and its stars headed to Abbey Road to mimic The Beatles.

The show’s four presenters – Prue Leith, Paul Hollywood, Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding – posed on the famous crossing as they walked across it just as the pop group did all those years ago for their 1969 album cover.

Paul, who seemed to have a cooking utensil in his grasp, shared the image to social media on Monday and captioned it: ‘Bake off tomorrow…!! #beatlestribute #abbeyroad #bakeoff!'”

It looked as though it was a huge hint as to what viewers can expect, with the first episode of the new series looking likely to feature a round dedicated to the iconic Liverpudlian band.

Series 12 of the hit cookery contest kicks off tonight on Channel 4 at 8pm.

Despite fans being excited for the start, there has been controversy in the build up after a contestant was forced to quit her social media page.

Freya Cox deleted her Facebook group after trolls slammed her love of “cruel” horse riding.

The 19-year-old psychology student, 19, decided to delete the page called Freya Cox Eventing, which detailed her achievements in the sport.

Unfortunately, fans took to the page to criticise the sport and claimed it is cruel to animals.

Freya, who is a dressage champion, described who she was “passionate about ethics” in online posts which showcased her excitement at becoming the show’s first vegan baker.

She wrote: “The secret is finally out! I can’t believe I’m actually writing a post announcing I am going to be on the Great British Bake Off 2021 baking all vegan bakes.

“I am so passionate about ethics and feel completely blessed to have the opportunity to share this with the world. To say I am the first completely vegan baker on GBBO feels like such an honour.

“I will be posting loads of updates, bakes and behind the scenes pics over on my Instagram page if you’d like to follow me on there. Speak to you all soon…the future really is vegan.”

But users bombarded the post with nasty comments after another pic was seen of her riding a horse.

Some vegans consider horse riding cruel since the horse doesn’t get a choice and can sometimes cause discomfort for the animal.

While it’s recognised that vegan can mean different things for many people, in some cases it’s the thought that animal-based sports aren’t vegan because they can potentially hurt those involved.

Although Freya insisted that her animal was treated extremely well, she took the tough decision to delete the group.
