Last year, ‘Bake Off’ dominated the headlines when it was announced that it would be making the jump from the BBC, losing its presenters, Mel and Sue, and judge Mary Berry along the way.
“They are going to change the format to get adverts in between, but I still love ‘Bake Off’ and I will still watch ‘Bake Off’ when it’s on Channel 4. I might just watch the first series just to criticise a little bit. We just don’t want a repetition of ‘Top Gear’ do we?”
Departing judge Mary Berry revealed back in September that she expected ‘Bake Off’ to be a “different” show in its new home, adding: “I’m sure [it will be] very successful. And Paul will carry them through.”
‘Bake Off’ is expected to begin airing on Channel 4 later this year, with a celebrity special in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.
