Yesterday, it was revealed that Great British Bake Off will be the last on BBC One, before Channel 4 take over the rights to the show.

In a joint statement today, the pair said: “We were very shocked and saddened to learn yesterday evening that Bake Off will be moving from its home. We made no secret of our desire for the show to remain where it was.

“The BBC nurtured the show from its infancy and helped give it its distinctive warmth and charm, growing it from an audience of two million to nearly 15 million at its peak.

“We’ve had the most amazing time on Bake Off, and have loved seeing it rise and rise like a pair of yeasted Latvian baps.

“We’re not going with the dough. We wish all the future bakers every success.”

Many fans are worried that Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood could also follow in the footsteps of Mel and Sue, with many people worried that the change could cause a new format.

However, Channel 4 released a statement today to calm fears, saying they had “no plans to change the incredibly successful format of the show”.
