In September 2016, midway through the show's seventh series, it was announced that this series would be the last to air on the BBC. Apparently, a rival broadcaster, Channel 4, had "poached" the series. The day after the announcement, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins both announced that they were not in agreement with the move to Channel 4 and would be stepping down. See more »
American here, a wonderful calm show. Comparing the show to the different American versions this is so much better. The contestants are just regular people and don't look like a casting director walked into a modeling agency asking 'who likes to bake.' There's no schtick with the contestants personalities, they are who they are and production doesn't force some ridiculous image on them to carry through a season. The judges aren't yelling at anyone but giving helpful advice. I LOVE the Technical Challenge where they get scant information and figure it out. I don't think the show needs a host much less TWO hosts who don't add anything and they aren't funny at all. No offense, they're just not needed. All in all a great show, so pleasant and the natural friendliness isn't forced.
