The big TV news of last year was that the Bake Off moved from BBC One to Channel 4 and the show has lost Mary Berry, Mel and Sue along the way. While the BBC has been heavily rumoured to be developing a rival to the show, here is the thread for all things actual Bake Off!

It has been (sort of) confirmed that there WILL be a full series airing this year after doubts over the BBC's year without airing clause. There has also been heavy rumours that today has seen test screenings to find a co-judge for Paul Hollysnake. Those spotted have been Michel Roux Jr, Rachel Allen, Frances Atkins, Lady Claire MacDonald and Claire Clarke.

I'm expecting there to be two new judges to make the dynamic different from the start to what the audience has been used to!

Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding will be presenting the programme on Channel 4.

Well, it's an unconventional pair, to say the least. Sandi's a good fit, but I'm not sure if Noel can tone down his zaniness for this kind of show.

Noel bloody Fielding... What a random/annoying pick. Sandi seems about right and I'm sure Prue Leith will be fine.

Credit to them for not taking an obvious pairing/judge, still not sure it's enough to get me watching. Noel Fielding on Bake Off just seems so random, a disaster waiting to happen laugh.gif

Noel Fielding is an unexpected choice but the other two seem very well fitted. Prue does seem a bit too of a safe choice though and will never top Mary!

I am feeling this will be a "watch if there's absolutely nothing else on" sort of thing that if I miss it I won't catch up laugh.gif I'll give it a chance anyway.

I don't know much about any of the new additions except Noel Fielding but he seems a VERY odd choice. I wonder if he'll last longer than one series.
