'Great British Bake Off': Davina McCall Eyed By Channel 4 Bosses To Replace Mel And Sue

"Bake Off tent... this is Davina."

As ‘Great British Bake Off’ fans continue to grieve the loss of Mel and Sue, reports are now beginning to come in thick and fast about who could be replacing them when the show moves to Channel 4.

The most recent name thrown into the mix is Davina McCall, who is said to be at the top of the producers’ new host wishlist.

Davina’s name repeatedly cropped up on Twitter when Mel and Sue first announced their departure, with some fans calling out for her to get the job, and, indeed, other ‘Bake Off’ viewers concerned she wouldn’t be the right fit for the show.
