Great British Bake Off fans name Karen their 'new favourite' after they spot her eating crisps as the other contestants panic

The contestant was cool as a cucumber as her fellow contestants panicked.

Eagle-eyed viewers noticed the in-store sampling assistant tucking into a packet of crisps while her fellow contestants panicked.

The 60-year-old added a new dimension to the term "crunch time" – while her fellow hopefuls were putting the 'crumble' in apple crumble, Karen was enjoying snack time.

The West Yorkshire native delighted viewers when she enjoyed a packet of cheese and onion crisps.

Clearly considerate, she even offered the treats to the other bakers as they put the finishing touches to their creations in Biscuit Week.

Many fans circulated funny memes of Karen eating her snack and even called her action a "mood."

One viewer even called her a "hero" for her act of laid-backness.

And others claimed they were "investing all my time in her" based on her crisp-munching.

Some were bemused by the fact the contestant brought the snack in a tupperware container.

But perhaps the contestant should have used those last few minutes to work on her regional biccie.




The judges were left underhwlmed by her 'Yorkshire Perkin Biscuit.'

Paul said they "look amazing" but that he didn't like the texture as it's like a "very, very small cookie."

Before adding: "It didn't blow me away."



While Prue was less severe – she instead described them as "nice and spicy" and "very chewy."

Karen revealed she was encouraged to apply for the show by her family.

She said: "My daughters encouraged me to do it, and I was approaching 60 and I found it really liberating to do something like this.

"As you get older you feel less inhibited, and think does it matter if you make a fool of yourself.

"I have always wanted to be even more flamboyant and free, I really wanted to do this for me and I thought it was the right time to step up and take on some challenges and have some fun."
