The BBC have lost their rights to broadcast The Great British Bake Off – Channel 4 have confirmed they will broadcast it in 2017.

The current series of the Great British Bake Off will be the last to air on the BBC after the broadcaster has lost rights.

Love Productions who make Bake Off have said negotiations with the BBC have been going on for a year and today it has been ‘unable to reach agreement on terms’.

Issues in both money and the development of the brand resulted in the BBC loosing rights.

Channel 4 have signed a three-year deal to broadcast the show.

Bake Off will launch on Channel 4 with a Stand Up To Cancer Celebrity special.

Jay Hunt, Channel 4’s Chief Creative Officer said: “Channel 4 is very proud to be the new home for The Great British Bake Off.”

Love Productions said in a statement: “After an extraordinary six-year journey with the BBC, Love Productions announces with regret that it has been unable to reach agreement on terms to renew the commission of The Great British Bake Off.

“We will now be focusing on finding a new partner to develop the familiar show that the British public turn to in their millions.

“Love Productions would like to thank the BBC for the role it played in making this show such an enormous hit, and the faith they showed in us over the years to develop it.”
