Channel 4 boss Jay Hunt has attempted to put ‘Great British Bake Off’ viewers’ minds at rest, following a stressful few days for fans of the hit show.

On Monday, viewers were dealt the blow that ‘Bake Off’ would be leaving the BBC at the end of its current run, which was followed by the devastating news that Mel and Sue would not be making the jump to Channel 4.

After the presenting duo specifically said the channel-change was their motivation for quitting, Jay - chief creative officer at C4 - has now tried to offer some comfort to ‘Bake Off’ fans, insisting they won’t be making any changes to the cherished format.
