GBBO fans take double look as they spot similarity between Prue Leith and Maggie

The new series of Great British Bake Off started this evening with a new batch of contestants hoping to be crowned the winner.

However, fans of the Channel 4 show were quickly distracted by how much they thought judge Prue Leith looked like baker Maggie.

Viewers watching at home took to social media to say how similar they thought judge Prue and Maggie are.

One viewer tweeted, "Is Maggie Prue's sister?", with another saying "Maggie and Prue are the same person."

"I'm convinced Prue is taking her glasses off between takes and rushing round the table to act as Maggie", said a third person said on social media.

Judge Paul Hollywood also couldn't seem to tell the difference during tonight's episode too, when he accidently called Maggie "Prue" during the first round.

During the showstopper challenge, Paul Hollywood even gave Prue Leith's glasses to Maggie to wear, in a nod to their similarities.

Maggie and Prue's similarities are already proving to be a hit with audiences, with one viewer saying on Twitter, "Maggie and Prue is the duo we didn't know we needed until now."

Another tweeted, "Oh I love Prue already…I mean Maggie", while another viewer said, "Maggie and Prue, definitely separated at birth."

Retired midwife and nurse Maggie, 70, is the oldest contestant taking part in the Great British Bake Off this year.

Contestants this year include Met Police Detective Amanda, Psychology student Freya, Chief Engineer Giuseppe, Junior HR Business Partner Rochica, Head of Finance Jairzeno and Car Production Operative Lizzie.

They're joined by Sales Manager Chigs, Client Relationship Manager Crystelle, Software Developer Tom, Shared Lives Co-Ordinator George and IT Professional Jurgen.

The contestant's bakes will be judged by Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, with the series hosted once again by Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas.

Great British Bake Off 2020 was won by 20 year old student Peter from Edinburgh, who was the youngest ever winner of the competition.

The new series of Great British Bake Off airs on Channel 4 at 8pm every Tuesday
