Channel 4 bosses are reportedly having trouble finding new hosts for ‘The Great British Bake Off’.
The broadcaster, who bought the rights to air the show from the BBC last year, is said to be finding it hard to find stars willing to replace old presenting duo Mel Giedroyc and and Sue Perkins.
The Sun has claimed a number of famous faces have turned down the chance to succeed the legendary hosts, not wanting to upset them.
Two such names include ‘The Last Leg’ comedian Josh Widdicombe and ‘Superfoods’ presenter Kate Quilton, according to the paper.
Last month, it was strongly rumoured bosses had found a replacement for Mary Berry in the shape of Prue Leith.
Meanwhile, Sue Perkins has claimed she may not be tuning in to the new series, admitting it will be “weird” to see a new line-up.
She told the Daily Mail: “We both wish it all the best. Hand on heart, I don’t know if I’d watch it, because that might be a bit weird, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want it to succeed in your absence.
