LONDON You know how popular a TV show is when just the mere mention of it moving channel is enough to invoke instant, nationwide uproar.

On Tuesday morning, the news broke that much-loved British classic The Great British Bake Off was moving from the BBC (which has been its home since 2010) to Channel 4.
