Great British Bake-Off 2019 Drag Queen in a Tea Cup

Shocked (I’m telling you, shocked!) to learn that U.S. fans of the “The Great British Bake-Off” like me will not have to wait for for the years it took for some of the series to get to PBS.

I’m puffing up with happiness like a pop-over rising before someone slams the oven door.

His first in 2008 was “The Boy in the Dress”, brought to life by legendary book illustrator Quentin Blake. Although ostensibly heterosexual, David Walliams has never shied away from his fey side, and this was
