Broadcaster, comedian and author Sandi Toksvig is to make up part of the presenting team for Channel 4’s Great British Bake Off.

Sandi Toksvig OBE will be joined by Prue Leith, Noel Fielding and Paul Hollywood to present the first series of GBBO since its move from BBC to Channel 4.

The out presenter said,

“It is an extraordinary honour to part of this national treasure of a show. Noel Fielding is one of the nicest guys in show business. The first time I met him I felt like I had met a rather wayward cousin whose take on the world made me laugh. The only down side is that he has much better dress sense that I do. I spend my daytimes on Channel 4 already so it will be a treat to be there in the evenings. I am so delighted to be working with Love Productions and Channel 4 on this best of British show.”

Restaurateur, food writer and novelist Prue Leith will be joining Paul Hollywood as judge of The Great British Bake Off when it returns to screens later this year on Channel 4.
