Can you spot why bake-off fans are so annoyed by these promo shots?

The Great British Bake-Off is nearly back on our screens, and almost everybody is excited about it, because it's brilliant.

However, some people have been a bit annoyed by the promo shots, introducing the new contestants. Why, you ask?

Yeah, it appears that the GBBO folk thought it would be fine to give the men blue icing and the women pink icing. No chance that would annoy anybody, right?

It has annoyed and disappointed a lot of baking fans, who don't think the colour of the icing should be gendered so unnecessarily.

And their annoyance has in turn annoyed other people, who think the gendering of icing is fine...

A lot of people complained in fact about the choice of icing colour, saying that it was unnecessary gender stereotyping. Even Lib Dem leader Tim Farron took a stance...

And people got into in-depth conversations about icing and gender stereotyping, thanks to a promo shot from a show about baking delicious cakes.

But fortunately comedian Joe Lycett cleared everything up...

So now we can all sit back, relax and enjoy the bake-off.
