Matt Lucas’ hilarious turn as Boris Johnson on The Great British Bake Off may have amused many viewers, but it seems not everyone was as impressed. 
Matt Lucas Boris Johnson Skit On The Great British Bake Off Attracts Ofcom Complaints
The Little Britain star’s skit – which featured at the start of his debut episode of the Channel 4 show – has been the subject of over 200 Ofcom complaints. 
It has been revealed that 202 viewers contacted the TV watchdog after Matt’s parody aired on Tuesday night, according to Metro. 
The sketch saw him mimicking Johnson’s Coronavirus briefings, standing at a lectern featuring the slogan: “Stay Alert, Bake Cake, Save Loaves.”
As is standard procedure, Ofcom will now assess the complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate if the programme broke the broadcasting code. Stumbling over his words, Matt began the skit by saying: “Good evening, let’s get straight to it.
“We are now approaching phase 46 which means that from Tuesday morning or Wednesday evening, depending on your height, we are saying, with regards to baking, that if you must bake in a tent, bake in a tent, but please don’t bake in a tent…”Welcome to a new series of The Great British Bake Off - and a big hello to our new presenter Matt Lucas! #GBBOpic.twitter.com/0sa8NxTJtE— British Bake Off (@BritishBakeOff) September 22, 2020He added: “We are asking people to use common sense with regards to the distribution of the hundreds and thousands.”
Matt’s co-host Noel Fielding then appeared via video link to ask a question about the correct pronunciation of “scone”.
It just so happened that Bake Off’s broadcast was delayed by 15 minutes to make space for televised coronavirus addresses from the prime minister, Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, following the announcement of new restrictions.
Matt was brought in as the new co-host of Bake Off earlier this year, after Sandi Toksvig stood down after three years. 
The Great British Bake Off continues on Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4. MORE BAKE OFF: Matt Lucas' Bake Off Debut Was Deliciously Silly One Bake Off Contestant Had An Absolute Nightmare Of A First Show Toppling Tiers And Custard Crimes: Great British Bake Off’s Biggest Disasters Ever
