Last month, it was confirmed that Sandi and Noel would be replacing Mel and Sue in the ‘Bake Off’ tent, when the show makes its debut on Channel 4 later in the year.
However, while the news came as a shock to many, Sandi has insisted that the former ‘Mighty Boosh’ star is up to the job.
Sandi previously expressed her excitement to work with Noel when the announcement was first made, insisting: “Noel Fielding is one of the nicest guys in show business.
“The first time I met him I felt like I had met a rather wayward cousin whose take on the world made me laugh. The only downside is that he has much better dress sense that I do.”
While Noel and Sandi will be stepping into Mel and Sue’s shoes, Mary will be replaced by TV cookery expert, Prue Leith.
Paul Hollywood is the only member of the original ‘Bake Off’ team making the jump to Channel 4, admitting he’s “really excited” to get to work with his new colleagues.
