Bake Off names for star barker pups

A litter of puppies is putting the "grrr" into Great British Bake Off - after a charity gave them names inspired by the hit BBC show.
The family of crossbreed puppies born at Dogs Trust Loughborough has been named in honour of the show's presenters Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.
Their siblings were then named after a series of baked goods - Choux, Eccles, Muffin, Victoria, Cookie, Cinnamon, Souffle and Banoffee.
The creatures may well prove to be a little fluffier than the creations of contestants when the programme returns to TV on Wednesday on its new channel BBC1, after shifting from BBC2.
Ella Tonge, the supporter relations officer for Dogs Trust Loughborough, said: "Whilst there are currently a few soggy bottoms amongst the litter this will soon pass and all of these furry friends have the potential to rise to be 'star barkers' in their new homes.
"There is no denying that they are going to be active little additions to any lucky home and there are already quite a few vying for the title of 'showstopper'."
