The show WILL go on, Sewing Bee judge in­sists

Daily Mail - - News -

THE BBC’s Great Bri­tish Sewing Bee has been given a new lease of life, re­veals on-screen judge Pa­trick Grant, fol­low­ing re­ports in Fe­bru­ary that it faced the axe.

Fans feared the show, pre­sented by Clau­dia Win­kle­man, would not be re-com­mis­sioned af­ter the Beeb lost The Great Bri­tish Bake Off to Chan­nel 4. ‘It’s not true that it’s been axed. I don’t know why that story was put out,’ Sav­ile Row de­signer Pa­trick tells me.

‘as far as we all know, the dis­cus­sions are still on-go­ing and I think every­body in­volved is con­fi­dent it’s coming back. There was a lot of con­ver­sa­tion about Sewing Bee mov­ing, or be­ing axed be­cause of the huge changes with Bake Off, as they have the same pro­duc­tion com­pany, which is Love Pro­duc­tions.

‘as of right now, they are ac­tively dis­cussing it.

‘It was last on in June last year, and it wouldn’t be coming out this June, but the plan is for it to be on TV again next year.

‘Some­body even started a pe­ti­tion, which, again, was very con­fus­ing be­cause we hadn’t even been can­celled in the first place!’
