Balding for Bake Off ?
clare could be set to replace Mel and sue in the famous tent
Clare Balding has been installed as the favourite to present The Great British Bake Off, following the news that Mel and Sue will be leaving when it moves to C4 next year.
The 45-year-old enhanced her reputation with polished presenting performances recently at the Rio Olympics and Paralympics.
While Clare is an 8-1 shot, Jo Brand, who currently fronts spin-off show The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice, is the second favourite at 10-1.
But if C4 decided to stick with a double act, then bookies believe comedy duo Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are the hot tip, at 11-1.
With Mary Berry’s decision to follow the outgoing Mel and Sue, C4 might need to rethink the show’s format, but fans will at least be reassured that Paul Hollywood has confirmed he will stick with the show for the next three series.
while paul is sticking to his buns, moving to c4 was the final straw for Mary, sue and Mel
