The Great Australian Bake Off

5 times Dennis stole the show on The Great Australian Bake Off

Series four contestant, Dennis Mews has a dry sense of humour and quick wit.

Whether it's consoling the other bakers or making Matt and Maggie completely lose their train of thought during the judging process, Dennis has been bringing all of the laughs this series.

Here, we look back at some of his finest moments in the Shed:

When he named his bake 'Boris'

The bakers were asked to bake an illusion cake in week one of the competition, and Dennis decided to do a cheese wheel with mice. One mouse in particular took his fancy, which he named Boris.

His calming advice to Wynn 

During Bread week, Wynn was having a tough time. Dennis asked him if he was worried, and consoled his fellow baker by saying everyone had made mistakes in their baking over time, and not to stress, as, "It's only a loaf."

The way he deploys extra baking power

Dennis got down on his knees in the Shed and instead of praying for extra baking power, took matters into his own hands. He raised his arms, stretched his spirit fingers and summoned the baking gods to look favourably upon his oven.

His existential orange questioning

Ah, the age old question. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Dennis demonstrated his deeper side while in the shed, during the zesting of an orange. He pondered, "Which came first, the orange colour or the orange fruit? Is it because they're orange in colour? Or, did they name the colour after the fruit?" We're not sure!

Reflections on erections

Who could actually ever forget the moment Dennis spoke about his biscuit box to the judges? He said, "I'm very pleased I got to construct it without it collapsing. If I may say, my last two erections have been a great disappointment." Which sent Matt, Maggie and the entire shed into giggles!
