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

Good sport clare has at­tracted savvy bets
