New stars of Bake Off haven’t met!

Daily Mail - - Life -

THE four pre­sen­ters cho­sen to host The Great Bri­tish Bake Off have not yet met as a team, Paul Hol­ly­wood re­vealed yes­ter­day.

He said Chan­nel 4 did not or­gan­ise a joint screen test for him­self and co-stars Noel Field­ing, Sandi Toksvig and Prue Leith be­fore de­cid­ing they would front the show.

Nor did the pro­duc­ers con­sult Hol­ly­wood, who was the only star to stay with the pro­gramme fol­low­ing its £75mil­lion move from BBC. Asked if they had run the names past him, the baker replied ‘No, why?’.

The rev­e­la­tion is likely to fuel con­cerns that the new quar­tet will not gel in the same way the BBC’s pre­sen­ters did. How­ever, Hol­ly­wood told ITV’s Loose Women that he thought the new choices were ‘per­fect’.
